Have you ever imagined your granparents playing the NES when the console released? What about today? Well one grandmother Umeji Narisawa, a 99 year old from Sendai could be in with claiming the title of being the oldest Bomberman gamer ever.

Japanese TV show Nanikore featured her Bomberman exploits on a recent episode.

She started playing Bomberman back when she was 63 years young after she saw her grandchildren playing it and thought it looked easy. 26 years down the line she keeps playing Bomberman everyday to keep her mind exercised.
