Bomberman is back! Legendary multiplayer series returns for Nintendo SwitchTM launch title
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. announces Super Bomberman R as a launch title exclusively for the new Nintendo SwitchTM format.
The Bomberman series has been delighting fans with its stunning multiplayer action since 1983. The premise of the game is simple: guide your chosen Bomberman around a maze-like play area using timed bombs to open walkways and take out players or CPU-controlled adversaries. Super Bomberman R retains these core elements but places them with updated visuals that offer greater detail while still remaining faithful to the series’ origins.

Super Bomberman R makes full use of the Nintendo Switch system capabilities, which enables gamers to play wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. Super Bomberman R offers a ‘Battle’ mode where up to eight players are dropped within a maze until the ‘last man standing’ is declared the winner. There is also a ‘Story’ mode where one to two players work cooperatively to clear a series of 50 stages in order to save the galaxy.

All key Bomberman elements return for the Nintendo Switch™ title, including useful items found within the destructible areas of each maze. Removing a wall will often reveal a power-up to extend the range of the explosion or endow the user’s Bomberman with a useful skill. These include faster movement, the ability to kick or throw bombs, and more. Thus, as players gain ever more devastating capabilities, they must use all their skill and ingenuity to ensure their opponents get caught in a blast while avoiding its fiery touch!

Key features in Super Bomberman R include:
3D stages with dynamic environments
Bomberman’s siblings and well-known enemies are back with rich personality
Battle mode for maximum of 8 players, local connection battles, and online battles
Enriched story with all-star voice actors

Super Bomberman R marks a fitting return for the much-loved gaming legend and will be released for Nintendo Switch™ on March 3rd.
