After initially launching on Stadia in September 2020, Super Bomberman R Online is heading to consoles and Steam.
Super Bomberman R Online will release digitally on May 27 for PC via Steam, PS4, and Switch. It will also be compatible with PS5.
The release date for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S will be confirmed at a later date.
Along with the multi-platform release, there will be new in-game seasons for all platforms, including Google Stadia. Each season will last three months and bring new items, cosmetics, and a new Bomber hero.
Season 1 is headlined by the addition of Metal Gear Solid veteran, Old Snake Bomber, obtainable with in-game “Bomber Coins”.
Alongside the release, Konami will also launch a two-tier “Battle Pass” system: Silver Passes and Gold Passes.
The Silver Pass will be free for all players, and the more you play Battle 64 mode, the more you can level up and earn cosmetic rewards including taunts, accessories, and poses. There will be 100 ranks within the Silver Pass.
The optional Gold Pass offers greater rewards over 100 ranks, including more cosmetics and other items that do not directly affect gameplay. The Gold Pass will be available for 800 Bomber Coins, a currency that can be purchased in packs via the in-game shop or on the platform store.
Bomber Coins are also offered as Gold Pass rewards. The ranks and content for both the Silver and Gold Bomber Passes are seasonal, so players will need to climb up the ranks again once a new season starts to earn more rewards.
