Konami have revealed that Super Bomberman R will soon become a free-to-play title on everything — Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Series S/X, Playstation 4 and 5, and Steam.
The game, retitled Super Bomberman R Online, will also feature cross-platform play and a new large-scale mode for when you really feel like blowing things apart.
“With the new Battle 64 mode, players will automatically be placed in one of many areas at the start of each match, and must battle it out against other players in the same area. Areas will begin to close down as the clock ticks and players must pass through the gates to the other remaining areas before the timer runs out! Those who make it to the last remaining area must battle it out to become the last one standing!!”
The original Super Bomberman R released to middling reviews (mixed on Steam), but I thought the Switch version was all right. This latest incarnation first appeared back in September 2020 on Google Stadia, though we’ll have to wait for release details for PC and other consoles.
