Google revealed a new trailer for the Super Bomberman R Online. The reveal was done at the Stadia Connect event. Also, the bomb-blasting title was announced which will be landing on the platform this autumn. The title is going to feature a lot of customization options. The additional features include the 64-player simultaneous battles. And also will be showing off the click to play feature on Stadia.
The Bomberman franchise has not experienced much action till now. But, it will be holding a certain appeal that will be timeless. The appeal is going to shine bright in the multiplayer. Here it will be showing off its frantic, puzzle-like combat. Super Bomberman R is the latest installment of the franchise. It was co-developed by Konami and HexaDrive. This was originally released for the Nintendo Switch back in March 2017. After that, it made its way through the Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the month of June in 2018. However, it received mixed types of reviews. The Stadia version of the game is going to have some notable features that can strengthen the title.
The Game: Super Bomberman R
The 64-player battles are the biggest draw for the long-tine bombers. The video from the launch trailer tells that this new mode will be featuring something like a simultaneous tournament ladder system. It will consist of gated arenas that will be feeding into each other, instead of a huge arena housing all the competitors which is quite similar to the modern battle royale games.
Bomberman is like a retro-icon which can be seen as an odd champion that is expected to represent something which should be radically new. But the addition seems to be a smart move by Google. Broader recognition of the character brings Stadia a degree of old-school credit. Bomberman has completed 30 years of hits and flops and the library of the franchise shows that its formula is long term. The inner mechanics of the game are in an ideal party game and that one can be enjoyed digitally as well as in-person. This creates an accessible and appealing option for the time of social distancing.
Super Bomberman R Online is ready to launch for the Google Stadia this autumn.
