Nintendo Dream and Dengeki started out by asking why Bomberman was brought to Switch. Okamura began by stating that the platform is very compatible with the series. Specifically regarding Switch, he likes it because it has a straightforward composition and it’s easy to make games for the system. Lately there are few consoles that come with two controllers by default, so Okamura felt that’s a good thing as well. Being able to play anytime, anywhere, and with anyone in your home with family, outside with friends, or online with others is an important aspect.

Digital Foundry has uploaded a new video showing how Super Bomberman R on Switch manages to get a stable 60 frames per second with the new version 1.3 patch.
Apparently, in order to stabilize the game at 60 FPS, Konami has dropped the resolution and Super Bomberman R runs at 720p in Battle Mode while docked. While playing portably, the image quality also takes a dip to 540p. The Story Mode retains the original resolution of 1080p docked and 720p portable, now with an uncapped frame rate of roughly 45 FPS.
Here’s the analysis:
