Super Bomberman R was an unexpected but much-liked launch title for Nintendo Switch back in 2017. Bringing back the series’ beloved multiplayer along with a new visual style was a treat, especially with the ability to compete with up to eight players. Alongside online play, Super Bomberman R was a delightful reinvigoration of the franchise.

When Super Bomberman R Online was announced, it thus made perfect sense to make the game a Stadia-exclusive. Erm, well, maybe not (Google’s streaming video game platform has struggled to find an audience since its debut). Thankfully, Konami has decided to bring Super Bomberman R Online to virtually every console under the sun, including Nintendo Switch. There’s no firm release date beyond “coming soon,” but once the game drops it will be free-to-play.

Here’s Konami’s synopsis:

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 theΒ β€œBattle 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!
