Super Bomberman R

One of the most pleasant surprises of the Nintendo Switch launch line up was that of Super Bomberman R, which will see the long-awaited return of Hudson Soft's former mascot. Alongside the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the arcade game seems to be a much simpler affair, but it will no doubt make for some excellent multiplayer both at home and on the go.

The title of the game brings to mind the titles of retro games from the SNES era, but the "R" at the end has been something of a mystery. A user over on Reddit recently asked what it was for, and got a response from the official Konami Reddit account. Here's what was 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.
