Super Bomberman R Online headed to PC and consoles, and it’s free-to-play

Stadia exclusive blowin’ up everywhere

Previous Stadia-exclusive Super Bomberman R Online will come blasting onto PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch at some point in the near future. Rumors of a port popped up back in February, after a listing for a PC edition appeared on The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea‘s website. Konami officially announced the multi-platform port earlier today.

Super Bomberman R Online takes the famous and frantic gameplay that is the franchise’s trademark and applies it to a larger, battle-royale format. Up to 64 Bombermen are deposited across a selection of 16 maps, blowing each other (and often themselves) to kingdom come until there is a last bomber standing. Players can kit their custom master blaster out in over 100 different items, ensuring that they have the coolest-looking bomber on the block.

As Super Bomberman R Online features a heavy emphasis on customization, Konami has decided that the new port will be released as a free-to-play title. A “Premium Pack,” which will retail for around 10 bucks, will include a selection of unique items and skins based on famous Konami brands such as Castlevania, Gradius, and Silent Hill. Players will also need to purchase the Premium Pack if they wish to set up private games or access the “Grand Prix” mode. The mammoth 64-player battles, however, will be available to everyone for free.
