Konami sent out the following


Regarding the latency issues during Online Battles (3)

Dear Bomberman Fans,

We are happy to announce a significant upgrade for Super Bomberman R available on Nintendo Switch.

These improvements should greatly refine the game-play, control input and character controls, for both online and offline play.

This is the first of many upcoming updates that will focus on improving the Super Bomberman R play experience.

We appreciate your patience and your continued support..

Stay tuned for more information!

The Super Bomberman R team.


Super Bomberman R has sold extremely well in Japan and likely the rest of the world, and so it isn’t surprising to see Konami rush to fix it up. Hopefully this is a sign of even more Konami support coming.

The patch should be out by now, so play on and enjoy.

The Nintendo Switch released last Friday and has accomplished  great things so far. The system and has sold well in all markets for Nintendo and Zelda has broken sales records.  And now it seems, the other launch games are also doing well. We have some sales data for Super Bomberman R and things look good for the series.

Super Bomberman R sold 39.609 copies in Japan according to the Media Creates charts, making this the highest opening week for the series in nearly 20 years. This is big considering how the series had been put on hold for a while.
