Super Bomberman R (スーパーボンバーマン R Sūpā Bonbāman R?) is an action-maze game developed by Konami and HexaDrive for the Nintendo Switch console. The game was released worldwide on March 3, 2017 as part of the Bomberman series. It is also the first main entry of the series in over a decade, as well as being the first to be developed following the dissolution of original series developer Hudson Soft in 2012. Ports for Microsoft Windows (Steam), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were released on June 2018. The game received mixed reviews by critics.

Simon Belmont Bomber, Dracula Bomber and Alucard Bomber, characters inspired by Simon Belmont, Dracula and Alucard, respectively, are three of several Konami mascot characters that have progressively been included as part of the game's many DLCs.

Super Bomberman R Online[]

An enhanced port of Super Bomberman R, called Super Bomberman R Online (スーパーボンバーマン R オンライン Sūpā Bonbāman R Onrain?), was initially released exclusively for Google Stadia on September 1, 2020. It was later released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) on May 27, 2021. As its name implies, this new version focuses on online multiplayer play, or "battle royale", basically being an upgraded version of the online multiplayer mode of the original game.

The game features a few new modes of play and also offers a wider repertoire of options to customize characters; these are divided in two categories: "Character Settings" and "Player Settings":

  • Character Settings: Allows the player to customize their bomberman. Options include the ability to change a bomberman's antenna and dress them up in any desired outfit. In addition, bombs now have unique skins and each has its own blast. Other options include different taunts, intros, victory outros, and speech bubbles.
  • Player Settings: Allows the player to change their panel, icon, and background music to play through in battle.

Like its predecessor, Super Bomberman R Online features several characters from classic Konami franchises mixed up with those from Hudson Soft. Two original characters inspired by renown characters from the Castlevania series have been added to the game so far via their respective updates. Richter Bomber, inspired by Richter Belmont, was added in a 2020 update, and Soma Cruz Bomber, inspired in Soma Cruz, was added in the September 2021 update.



  • Buggler, the final boss of the game, has some dialogues that closely resemble certain well-known phrases often delivered by Dracula in the Castlevania games.
