Super Bomberman R will have the original voices of Master Chief, Ratchet & Clank for its guest characters


Good gets

The initial announcement of guest characters Ratchet & Clank/Master Chief for the PS4 and Xbox One ports of Super Bomberman R respectively was pretty ace, but this new announcement from Konami is the cherry on top.

The publisher has just confirmed that not only will these guests be fully voiced, but they'll actually be accompanied by their original voice actors. Steve Downes will return as Master Chief, and Arnold Taylor/David Kaye reprise their roles as Ratchet & Clank. As a sort of consolation prize the Switch will get the character Max (Bomberman's ally historically in the series) at some point as a free update (and PC is still getting the P-body from Portal), but for now expect the awesome console-exclusive guests to hit their ports on June 12.

With all of the updates in tow from the Switch version, including the smoothing of the framerate, it should be a good time.
