People did scoff when Konami announced Super Bomberman R for the launch of Nintendo Switch, but the game proved to be entertaining and since launch, Konami have kept the content coming and once again, they have added more to the game.
This latest update includes 9 new characters, a new world, new stages and the all new Grand Prix mode. Designed specifically for future eSports initiatives, the new Grand Prix mode is a team versus mode that pits two teams of up to 3 players each to battle it out in different arena stages using new characters with special abilities.
The Grand Prix mode includes several matches:
- • "Crystal" Match - two teams compete to earn points by collecting crystals. Watch out for bombs! If you're blown away you lose half of your crystals. The team with the most points at the end of the round wins.
- • "Basic Bomber" Match - two teams compete against each other using standard Bomberman rules. Each team begins with a set number of lives. To win, take out your opponents to earn the most points before the time runs out.
