Super Bomberman R

Some Super Bomberman R players have been experiencing issues with control lag, leading to even bigger problems when playing with others locally and online. Thankfully, Konami intends to address the situation.

A notice posted to the Super Bomberman R website states that Konami’s “first priority is to adjust control response times which will improve both the online experience and control lag during offline battles.” An update is being prepared, and a date for its arrival will be shared “very soon.”

Other than that, additional updates are coming “to continuously improve the experience for players, both online and offline.”

Super Bomberman R sees the return of a series that’s been dormant for nearly a decade, this time returning exclusively on Switch. Bomberman has a long and illustrious history thanks to its simple gameplay and arcade-like presentation that makes it easy for anyone to jump in at any time and have fun, regardless of skill level or familiarity with the series or the medium in general. Super Bomberman R, however, for all its worth lacks quite a bit for its price of entry, and while the fun and arcade feeling is still there, don’t expect to feel fulfilled by the end of it all – especially if you’re playing solo.
