Alucard may not be playable in Smash but he is now in Super Bomberman R


Yes, it's still getting updates

For as much crap as we love to give Konami over basically everything it does as a company, and we do love it, the publisher has done right by Super Bomberman R. Here we are, more than a year and a half out from its initial release, and the game is still getting free content updates. Over the summer, Solid Snake, Naked Snake, and Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid franchise joined in on the fun. Now, another Konami icon has been added to the expansive list of playable characters.

With Version 2.2, available for download today, Alucard from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is now playable. He's joined by Upa Bomber from Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa, as well as some console exclusive characters. PlayStation 4 owners will get Piposaru Bomber and Toro, Xbox One owners will get Arbiter Bomber and Grunt Bomber, and those playing on Steam will get ATLAS Bomber.
