Taking inspiration from Bomberman R, which you may remember was actually a Nintendo Switch launch title, this battle royale game first appeared on Stadia last September. A Switch release date hasn’t yet been announced, although we’ve been told to expect it “soon” and that it will be a free-to-play digital-only title.
Here’s a synopsis if you need to be brought up to speed:
As Bomberman returns with the gameplay that has made the franchise a party game classic – blast through battlefields, find hidden power-ups and use them to blow away foes – the action in SUPER BOMBERMAN R ONLINE erupts to new heights with the “Battle 64” mode. Delivering an original battle royale experience, up to 64 players are spread across 16 starting battlefields. As levels are cleared and players are whittled down, the number of battlefields continue to shrink until the ultimate final battle to be the last bomber standing.
SUPER BOMBERMAN R ONLINE brings more than 100 customisable 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, giving access to 14 additional bomber characters that pay homage to classic KONAMI IP’s such as Gradius, Silent Hill, Castlevania and more!
We’ll keep an eye out for more news on this release over the coming weeks, but until then, let us know if you’re keen to check this out on Switch with a comment.
