New Bomberman Battle Royale Game Is Out Now, But Only On Stadia
Stadia Pro users get access to Super Bomberman R Online at no extra cost.
Super Bomberman R Online is now available exclusively on Google Stadia. The updated version of the Nintendo Switch launch title includes a new battle royale mode and is one of the six new games that are free for Stadia Pro members this month. Currently only available to premium members, Konami says it will announce "bundle availability for players without Stadia Pro" soon.
The biggest draw to Super Bomberman R Online is the new Battle 64 mode. This has 64 players competing in multiple stages at the same time until only one player survives. The Stadia exclusive supports Crowd Play, so streamers on YouTube will be able to get into matches with their fans.
Stadia Pro users will have indefinite access to the base version of Konami's latest game. The Premium Edition bundle can be claimed for free between September 1 and November 30. This adds in 14 additional characters that have special abilities from a number of Konami franchises including Castlevania, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Contra. The Premium Pack add-on will cost $9.99 after November 30 and will include all of the same content and the ability to create private online matches.
Super Bomberman R Online features over 100 customization options for players ranging from costumes to accessories. One new feature is bomb skins that can be equipped, which will affect how the bomb works and what kind of blast it has. GameSpot's Super Bomberman R review called the Switch original "one of the best party games around."
