Super Bomberman R was one of the few third-party launch titles for the Nintendo Switch back in March of last year and was exclusive to the system—until now.
Publisher Konami has just announced that Super Bomberman R will be getting PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports released on June 12th of this year, with a PC port via Steam coming the very next day on June 13th. Each version will retail for $39.99.
As part of the arrival on new platforms, each system will also feature a special Bomber exclusive to those versions of the game. PlayStation 4 users will get a Ratchet Bomber from Ratchet & Clank, Xbox One users will get a Master Chief Bomber from Halo, and Steam users will get a P-body Bomber from Portal. Additionally, if you pre-order Super Bomberman R for these systems digitally, or pick up the Shiny Edition at retail, you’ll also receive the Golden Vic Viper Bomber, and the Shiny Bomberman Brothers Set, where all eight Bombermen will have an extra special gleam to them.
Super Bomberman R for PS4, Xbox One, and PC will tout updates added to the Switch version right from the get-go as well, including all additional Bombers and Grand Prix mode, which adds a 3-on-3 team versus mode to the online multiplayer suite for the game. No word yet on whether the Xbox One or PS4 versions will be “enhanced” for PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, but we feel it’s unlikely considering the minimalistic nature of the graphics.
