In contrast to the (sickening) trend of AAA video games forcing microtransactions and DLC down the throats of gamers industry-wide, Nintendo and Konami have released an exclusive Super Bomberman R update that is free of charge and full of new stuff for gamers to try.
The update includes a variety of new features including a Grand Prix mode, nine new characters, a new world – World 7 – and other new stages and accessories.
The Grand Prix mode should cause some excitement among fans of the game. It is a team versus team mode that pits two teams of three, or fewer, players against each other in an arena using new characters with special abilities.
This new mode includes two types of matches: the Crystal Match that allows teams to earn points by collecting, yep, crystals, and the second mode which is the Basic Bomber Match that follows standard Bomberman rules. Furthermore, according to Konami, this mode is designed for future eSports ventures.
The nine new characters in the game are as follows:
- Geomon Bomber
- Dracula Bomber
- Princess Tomato Bomber
- Bubble Head Bomber
- Option Bomber
- Shiori Fujisaki Bomber
- Jehuty Bomber
- Anubis Bomber
- Reiko Bomber
Konami and Nintendo have shown that video game publishers and developers are very much able to provide free content for their fans and the company has even promised that there’s more content to come. This is how you do it.
