The gift that keeps on giving
Super Bomberman R was one of the highlights of the Switch’s launch lineup, offering a retro inspired experience that perfectly sells the concept of the Switch and its multiplayer options. Since then, Konami has kept the game updated to keep interest high, putting out a few free content updates that expand and polish...
Vic Viper and Simon Belmont join the team!
Super Bomberman R's most significant content update yet has just gone live, bringing with it new characters, stages and items. Three new characters are available in the shop: Vic Viper Bomber (from Gradius) Simon Belmont Bomber (from Castlevania), and Pyramid Head Bomber (from Silent Hill). There are also...
Castlevania is being discussed
Admittedly, Konami hasn’t been all too popular with the gaming community in recent times. The company is in charge of multiple treasured franchises, such as Silent Hill, Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Bomberman, but it’s been rather eclectic in its continued support of gaming. When the company decided to release...
Super Bomberman R has, it seems, been relatively successful for Konami. Sure, some of us have been slightly mortified by its high retail price, but it was generally well received - we had a lot of fun with it - and is clearly popular enough to earn further backing. After all, its recent version 1.3 update has
Characters from Konami titles coming in future update
Konami has released details on today's Super Bomberman R 1.3 update, which was confirmed yesterday. Despite initial reports claiming that only one new stage would be introduced, we're actually getting four new battle mode levels and two new accessories. You can also access a 60fps battle mode...

Stages and characters included
New free downloadable content for Super Bomberman R on Nintendo Switch has been teased by Konami in a live stream with "The Game Theorists". The video for the most part was YouTubers from around the world competing with one another in an international competition within the game; then as the stream neared the end host...
An explosive return
When most people pick up their Switch, they'll likely be grabbing a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild along with it. If you're picking up another game with your console however, we strongly suggest you consider Super Bomberman R. If you've never before played a Bomberman title before - and let's be honest, the...
The more you know
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...
Super Bomberman R is a pretty promising revival of one of gaming's most iconic characters, and we certainly enjoyed what we saw of it at last week's hands-on event. However, there's been some confusion over how much the game will cost when it arrives at retail. In the US, retailers have been pitching it at around $60, while in the UK it...
