Konami is releasing Super Bomberman R Online for consoles later this year after originally releasing on Stadia as a timed-exclusive.
Konami has announced today that Super Bomberman R Online is getting a release on PS4, XboxOne, Nintendo Switch, and PC as a free-to-play game.
Super Bomberman R Online previously released on Google’s game-streaming service, Stadia, and I gave it a go there and found it to be good fun, even if I was utter pants at it.
There’s no release date as of yet but the presser states that more information about the game’s console release, including the release date, will be revealed soon.
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 (RRP €9.99/£9.99/$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”. Grand Prix divides players into two teams of up to 3v3 to compete in earning points, with the highest total points after the two battle rounds wins.
