“Super Bomberman R Online” Launches 27 May for PC, Consoles

Konami recently announced that Super Bomberman R Online will release on 27 May for PS4, Nintendo Switch and Steam PC. An Xbox One version is still planned, though no release date has been confirmed at this time.

Formerly a Google Stadia exclusive (point and laugh), Super Bomberman R Online is a free-to-play re-envisioning of the classic multiplayer game, this time pitting 64 players in battle royale bouts.

If you’re really just interested in playing Bomberman in its classic form, you can do that, too, if you purchase the “Premium Pack” DLC. At least the pack also comes with some extra costumes designed after other well-known Konami characters.

This latest release also brings a few other features, such as a seasons system, which is Super Bomberman R Online’s version of a battle pass which offers both free and paid content (i.e. a the first season’s “Old Snake Bomber” which is designed after Metal Gear Solid 4’s Solid Snake).

Feeling the Bomberman fever? You can check out a trailer below while we all wait for 27 May to arrive.
