Super Bomberman R is an exclusive launch title for Nintendo Switch that returns to the classic Bomberman gameplay. It supports up to 8 players in a 3D grid-based arena and has a voice-acted story mode.
The main gameplay is like traditional Bomberman. Players start randomly in an arena and have to blow up blocks to get power-ups like fire and speed boosts to defeat opponents. In the battle mode, there is a revenge cart to get back in the game if the player can blow up another player. Multiplayer can be done on a single system, across 8 systems in Local Battle and online.
In addition to the multiplayer, players can complete a story mode. The players navigate designed levels, defeating all the enemies mostly to get to the level exit. Blowing up the blocks can earn power-ups. It can be played in co-op with shared lives.
Super Bomberman R is the first new Bomberman game since 2010's Bomberman Live Battlefest for the Xbox 360
