Super Bomberman R will get a patch for ‘control lag issues’

That’d be a nice start

I wasn’t holding out much hope that Super Bomberman R would see many updates, but it sounds like at least one important patch is on the way. Konami says it is “aware that some players are experiencing control lag issues” and that, better yet, it is “currently working to improve the situation.”

“Our first priority is to adjust control response times which will improve both the online experience and control lag during offline battles,” continues today’s notice. “We will share more information about the update’s release date very soon. Future updates are also planned as we work hard to continuously improve the experience for players, both online and offline.”

I’ve only just dipped my toes in the game — long enough to clear the first world after shedding a laughably high number of lives against the out-of-control boss — so I can’t personally comment on the online lag situation. Knowing that it should improve makes me want to hold off for now. Well that, and this no-frills Bomberman game can’t easily compete against Zelda for my time.
