Konami will announce the launch date for Super Bomberman R Online on Xbox One later, but the Google Stadia exclusive will cease to be this month when the ‘free to play’ is launched on the rest of the platforms.
The publisher and developer Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that Super Bomberman R Online will be released on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on May 27 for free as free to play; the release date for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S version will be announced later.
Super Bomberman Online R was released in September 2020 as an exclusive game Google Stadia. It was an adaptation of Super Bomberman R released for the rest of the platforms with the addition of a battle royale for 64 players. The title was released within the Stadia Pro subscription and as a paid game (€ 10) for the rest of the users, but in December they launched a free to play version.
The launch of the game on other platforms is accompanied by the premiere of the seasons on all systems. Each season will last three months and will allow players to unlock skins, earn a Bomber Hero, and use new items. In Season 1, the hero will be Old Snake Bomber, inspired by Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , and can be unlocked with Bomber Coins.
There will be two battle passes for Super Bomberman R Online. The Silver Pass will be free and will allow you to level up the rank up to 100 when playing in Battle 64 mode to earn rewards such as taunts, accessories and poses. There will be “a lot of free content during each season,” promises the Japanese company. On the other hand there will be the Gold Pass, which will cost 800 Bomber Coins and offers more rewards, in addition to more Bomber Coins in the pass itself.
Super Bomberman R has sold 2 million copies
Konami has also announced that Super Bomberman R, released on Nintendo Switch at the launch of the console (March 3, 2017) and on all other platforms in June 2018, has sold more than two million units. To commemorate it they will include the Double Platinum Cake costume for all players of the online version.
