Super Bomberman R Coming To Other Platforms With Exclusive Characters

by Imran Khan on Mar 15, 2018 at 01:49 PM

Switch launch title Super Bomberman R has been announced for Xbox One, PS4, and PC with exclusive characters on each platform.

The announcement follows a leak from the Korean ratings board that showed the game for the PlayStation 4, which we now know is arriving on two other platforms. For the Xbox One version, players can take Master Chief into the bombing arena; PlayStation 4 owners get the lombax Ratchet; Steam buyers on PC get Portal's P-Body from Portal 2's co-op mode.

The game was not incredibly well-received at the Switch's launch, but a year of DLC and updates helped improve the game over time. The two console versions will launch on June 12, with PC following a day later.

Our Take
I never ended up buying the Switch version, but it did well for Konami. I can see them hoping that success repeats on other consoles, but it's hard to imagine it will.
