Nintendo Announces New ‘Bomberman’ Game For The Switch

Add one more game to the Nintendo Switch’s low number of confirmed launch titles, as Super Bomberman R has been officially announced for a March 3rd release.

Super Bomberman R is the first console iteration of the popular multiplayer franchise since 2010’s Bomberman Live: Battlefest and will support up to eight players in its competitive multiplayer. In addition to the multiplayer offerings, Super Bomberman R also features a 50-stage co-op Story Mode for one or two players. It even has characters actual voiceover dialogue! Players will earn gems as they play through Story Mode, which can be exchanged for cosmetic enhancements or used as currency for continues if you run out of lives.

While this certainly doesn’t make up for the Nintendo Switch’s embarrassingly low number of launch games (hopefully more will continue to be confirmed), it’s good to know that the console will ship with a great multiplayer game at least.

Here’s a brief gameplay trailer:
