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

It is a simple and fast game to understand for players with little experience in the genre. The possibilities of the console provide immediate multiplayer which can be both cooperative and competitive. And do not forget the online mode! A classic that comes stomping and promises hours of fun. Expand

But graphics aren't what's important to a game. Yet with that said, i think the presentation is a reflection of this games simplicity and need to play it safe. it is Bomberman, that's it. While that's not a bad thing the game just doesn't do anything new. The game works, however, at times the isometric camera angle almost feels like a Bomberman design sin, as it can get in the way of gameplay.

    if you are looking for a fun arcade multiplayer game to enjoy with your friends, id say give it a shot.
    if you don't have any friends. this game isn't worth the 50 dollar price tag.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. To put it bluntly, trying to enjoy Super Bomberman R by yourself is like trying to set brush your teeth with a chainsaw. The AI in the multiplayer battle mode are so good that, unless you're playing alongside friends, you'll almost always be groaning in frustration as they eliminate you easily and then fight themselves. The campaign mode isn't fun, and more often than not you'll end up dying from the irksome navigation that's caused by trying to play a game that wants you to move in four directions most of the time with a joystick. there's little enemy variation, and it's ridiculously annoying to spend more time on all of the other enemies combined to try and blow up the last guy.

    Made with poor quality, frustrating control, outdated graphic and least playability.
    That's Super Bomberman R. Kind of hard to believe it's a game released in 2017.
    It's even worse than Bomberman 20 years ago. Just stay away with this game.
