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]

    As someone who long lost interest in the Bomberman series and wasn't putting any faith at all in this game, I was pleasantly surprised. 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

    Bomberman is back, unfortunately, saying so much for that, his anniversary needs to have a little more pizzazz given to it. Just doesn't feelBomberman is back, unfortunately, saying so much for that, his anniversary needs to have a little more pizzazz given to it. Just doesn't feel the same compared to when Bomberman was first released. Give it time to look at it before you consider a purchase otherwise it wouldn't be fair to let all the Switch hype go down to waste. Expand

    This game can be fun for a casual little game to play during a bit of free time, but the multiplayer experience is not very good. OnlineThis game can be fun for a casual little game to play during a bit of free time, but the multiplayer experience is not very good. Online matches are laggy, imbalanced by not properly pairing users with others of the same skill level, and take forever just to set up in the first place (probably due to the extremely low number of people playing this game). The story mode is decent, but it isn't that long, and it's really not enough to justify the price. In order to play multiplayer matches with friends or family, you have to purchase stages in a shop using in-game currency. The prices for stages, characters, and other items in the shop are ridiculously high compared to the meager amount of coins you receive after playing for several hours. It will be impossible to unlock everything without devoting every bit of your free time to this game for the next year or so... and with so many better titles out there for the Switch, it's not even worth trying to do. I really like the artwork in the game and I'd like to see it succeed, but the developers just don't seem to care enough to fix the problems people have been bringing up, which is pretty disappointing.

    It's even worse than Bomberman 20 years ago. Just stay away with this game.
