Now, Bomberman is coming back as "SUPER BOMBERMAN R" to Nintendo Switch. In SUPER BOMBERMAN R, the simple rule remains the same: operate the main character (Bomberman), place bombs, and battle with enemies and rivals, but it's coming back in a modern style with 3D stages and photo-real graphics. You can enjoy battles with rivals from all over the world. There is "Battle" mode for maximum of 8 players, and single play "Story" mode (cooperative play for 2 players is possible as well) where players clear each stage one by one, with a big volume of 50 stages. Also, there is a new rule where the condition to clear the stage is not just by wiping out all the enemies. This simple but strategic game with new rules and 3D stages is fun for everyone, from children to adults. Expand

    Super Bomberman R is the game that Switch needed at its beginning. Quick plays and lots of action with your friends in a very entertaining game that brings back the nostalgia.

    Super Bomberman R is the best multiplayer option right now for every Nintendo Switch owner. Sadly its main flaw is its input lag, that makes the online battles hard to play in some occasions. Still the 8 player on TV is as fun as in every other game of the franchise. Its single player campaign is fun but too short.

    Despite some flaws and a clear focus on multiplayer, Super Bomberman R is a good return to the roots of the franchise. Short on single player but endless fun with friends.

    Super Bomberman R is far from a bad game, but it clearly needed more time in the oven. [Issue #27 – May/June 2017, p. 68]

    Both the campaign and the online multiplayer are nice additions to the franchise, but they can be frustrating. Especially the online multiplayer feels incomplete, but thankfully the local multiplayer makes up for that.

    This is a cheap game with an expensive price tag, and there's nothing remotely super about it. [May 2017, p.123]

GoodAs someone who long lost interest in the Bomberman series and wasn't putting any faith at all in this game, I was pleasantly surprised. Good characters, good humour, good gameplay, all things that I never expected to see again from a ip owned by Konami, seing their recent distancing from games as a whole. It's a good experience if you like Bomberman games. Expand

El modo versus permite partidas de 2 a 8 jugadores, es sencillo hacerse con el control e ideal para partidas rápidas.

    El modo historia también está bastante bien y se puede jugar en cooperativo.

    Le he puesto un diez para compensar la nota media tan baja que tiene actualmente y que no refleja en absoluto la calidad del título.

This one supports up to 8 players. So far i have only played with 2 players and it was fun yet somewhat challenging. Boss fights are awesome when playing story mode with friends. The only downside is the price, maybe £10 cheaper would of been a better selling point. Expand

O seu potencial mostraA série recebeu um novo recomeço com o lançamento de Super Bomberman R. É um jogo completo e com conteúdo de qualidade. O seu potencial mostra que o couch multiplayer não está morto e isso é bom para a indústria que, infelizmente, focou apenas no multiplayer online com rumores inclusive de que o modo single player pode estar ameaçado em futuro próximo. Bomberman traz um alento aos jogadores que não aceitam imposições de modo de jogo e querem jogos completos pra jogar o modo que quiserem quando desejarem. Particularmente, estou bastante animado e crente em um novos títulos seguindo os mesmos moldes, mas o mercado precisa continuar reagindo positivamente ao Switch e aos títulos para que esse desejo ganhe força.

If you can ignore the steep asking price compared to previous Bomberman titles, then there is a lot of fun to enjoy.

    Really wanted to love this game as I've had a version of it on a Nintendo handheld before.

    I will say that the team working on this have successfully recreated a retro look, but perhaps too well. To my eyes it's often hard to follow the action of your little character leading to a lot of frustrating mishaps. It is fun though (despite this aspect) and I'm looking forward to playing against mates in local 4 player mode.
