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 on the Switch, it raised plenty of eyebrows, and now it seems that more support for the platform is under deep consideration.
European Brand Manager, Richard Jones, recently talked with Miketendo64 on Super Bomberman R, reflecting on the game’s reception and planned future. It seems that the free content updates could continue for some, as Jones had this to say when quizzed on support for the game:
While I can’t say how long far we will continue to support Super Bmberman R, I can say we do have plenty of other ideas in the works and have a few big updates on the way. For example, while I can’t announce anything for the version 1.5 update, suffice to say there will be more stages and other things. But although I can’t confirm there will be more costumes/characters, there may or may not be some more later on down the line. We’ll just have to see how it goes.
Jones also spoke on Konami’s future with the Switch, acknowledging fan demand for a new Castlevania game:
All I can say is that there is lots of internal discussions going on within Konami regarding what games we can bring to the Nintendo Switch, other than Bomberman, a game which we are well aware of its heritage and how loved it and Castlevania is. So much so that Castlevania is getting is getting its own show on Netflix and because of that, we’re hearing a lot of desires from our fans for a new Castlevania series. So we do know there is a demand for a new game, but right now nothing is set in stone as the discussions are still on going.
