Konami sent out the following

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today a new update for SUPER BOMBERMAN R that includes a free 3-vs-3 game mode, as well as a stock of new characters.

 

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.

 

The new update also introduces 9 new characters, a new world – World 7 – to the story mode, as well as a variety of other new stages and accessories.

 

SUPER BOMBERMAN R launched globally in March 2017 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch™, marking a fitting return for the beloved multiplayer series. All key Bomberman elements return for the new title as players guide their Bomberman around maze-like areas using timed bombs to open walkways and take out opponents within timed sessions. In SUPER BOMBERMAN R, up to eight players can compete locally or online in the competitive ‘Battle’ mode, or up to two players can work cooperatively in ‘Story’ mode to clear stages in order to save the galaxy.

 

This is awesome news. Konami has not been content to just rest on what they did with Super Bomberman R but have been pushing the game with new content and much welcome improvements.

Have you been playing recently?

The future is looking bright for SNK. The company shared their official financial statements today,  and revealed some very good news. SNK has returned to profit in 2017 despite losing 558 million yen FY 2016. This change in fortune can be attributed to SNK moving away from pachinko and back to game development.

CEO Koichi Toyama has decided that SNK would return to their roots as a game developer and rebranded and SNK from SNK Playmore  as part of the return. Their first major effort was The King of Fighters XIV, which has been doing well for the company, especially on the esports scene. Hopefully SNK keeps this up, because they make great games and the industry is better with them in it.
