Once a Stadia exclusive, Konami has announced that Super Bomberman R Online will be releasing soon for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch and PC as a free to play, digital download only game.
In case you didn’t know, Super Bomberman R Online pits players against 64 other bombermen (?) and basically blast each other into oblivion, with the last standing player being crowned as the winner. It looks pretty fun, but because of the lack of players due to its Stadia exclusivity, it really didn’t take off as much as Konami would have hoped. To be quite honest, this sounds like a blast (heh) on the Nintendo Switch.
SBRO brings more than 100 customizable feature combinations, including numerous costumes, accessories and for the first time, bomb skins – affecting both the bomb and the blast itself. Players can further discern themselves from the rest with the optional Premium Pack (USD $9.99), giving access to 14 additional bomber
characters that pay homage to classic KONAMI IP’s such as Gradius, Silent Hill, Castlevania and more!
While anyone in the world can jump into a “Battle 64” room, the Premium Pack allows players to create their own private Room Match with rulesets that include “Battle 64” mode, “Standard” mode with up to 16 players or “Grand Prix”.
Details on release date will be announced soon.
