We received Super Bomberman R from Konami today. We’ve sort of seen the game case previously, but now we have a final look – including an image inside the North American case with the cartridge.

Our Super Bomberman R review is coming soon. Dennis is working hard on Zelda: Breath of the Wild so hitting launch is unlikely, though we’ll deliver our verdict as soon as we can.

Super Bomberman R will run at 30 frames per second, according to Konami. The game is also confirmed to run at the Switch’s full resolution in both console and portable modes.

Super Bomberman R’s Battle Mode only supports online, whereas Cooperative Story Mode is only for local play. Regarding online, matchmaking through lobbies will be used so that players can easily connect to friends and random online participants.

Konami Japan has uploaded new footage of Super Bomberman R for Switch, which appears inside a show called Bomberman TV.

See it for yourselves below:

Super Bomberman R will offer several different multiplayer options. On the game’s official website, these are fully detailed.

First, in terms of local play, up to eight controllers can be paired with Switch for an 8-player battle. Two controllers can also be paired to four Switch systems to again battle it out with eight players.

Super Bomberman R also supports online. By pairing two controllers to four Switches that are connected to the internet, you can participate in an 8-player battle here as well.


Here’s something that may come as a bit of a surprise. On the official GDC 2017 site, Super Bomberman R is shown as one of the playable games developed with the Unity engine. Rather than going with internal tools, Konami and HexaDrive decided to use third-party technology. Fortunately we know that Switch supports Unity very well.

Konami has released the opening cinematic for Super Bomberman R. It shows the frustration that Bomberman is having with his many siblings, as well as the sinister plans of the Emperor Bugler and the return of the Dastardly Bombers. Watch it below:

Konami is finally making a new Bomberman game in Super Bomberman R, slated for Switch. On Reddit, the company actually took the time to explain the meaning behind “R” in the title.

Konami said:

“R is a throw back feel for the Devs. to when games could simply have a letter and allow that letter to carry many meanings. It symbolized Returns & Reborn because this game is such a homage to SNES and SB3. But it also mean Rangers, to represent the diverse and colorful group of Bomberman characters who patrol the galaxy.”

Super Bomberman R will be out for Switch’s launch on March 3.


Update: The official Super Bomberman R website has been updated, revealing the game’s price in other regions as well – it will cost $49.99 in the US and €49.99 in Europe.

Following Super Bomberman R’s announcement for the Switch, one thing Konami initially weren’t ready to announce was the game’s price. Today, Eurogamer reports that in a note sent out to the UK press, Konami have confirmed that Super Bomberman R will cost £50 in the United Kingdom. The game’s price in other regions has not yet been officially announced.


Update: Best Buy’s page is currently having issues at the moment. Amazon’s 20% Prime discount also isn’t showing, but it should be applied on orders later. We’ll let you know when these issues are addressed.

Original: Both Amazon and Best Buy are now accepting pre-orders for Super Bomberman R. You can grab one on Amazon here, and one from Best Buy here.
