Konami announces that Super Bomberman R is now available in North America and Europe for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Konami also revealed a brand-new character that it's joining the Bomberman family – Xavier Woods Bomber. A global wrestling superstar and video game guru, this Bomber hosts his own game channel for his millions of fans. Rumor has it that he has plans to broadcast the next Bomber Battle to the entire galaxy. His special skill involves using his trusty trombone, Francesca 2. Xavier Woods Bomber will be a part of a ‘Day 1’ update, which will also include platform exclusive characters Ratchet & Clank Bomber (PS4), Master Chief Bomber (Xbox One), and P-body Bomber (Steam).
In Super Bomberman R, up to two players can work cooperatively in Story mode to clear stages in order to save the galaxy. Guide a wide variety of Bomberman characters around maze-like areas using timed bombs to open walkways and take out opponents. Multiply the fun and play with up to eight players in Battle mode, or jump into the competitive Grand Prix mode. Grand Prix is a team-versus-team mode that pits two teams of up to 3 players each who battle it out in different arena stages using characters with special abilities.
Super Bomberman R is available for $39.99.
