Konami Explains What The “R” In Super Bomberman R Stands For



Back during last month’s Nintendo Switch event, it was revealed that a new Bomberman title was headed for the upcoming console as a launch title, named Super Bomberman R. Konami has since taken to Reddit to explain the meaning behind the “R” in the game’s title, saying the letter stands for, among other things, “Returns & Reborn.”


Here is the full explanation:


“R is a throw back feel for the Devs. to when games could simply have a letter and allow that letter to carry many meanings. It symbolized Returns & Reborn because this game is such a homage to SNES and SB3. But it also mean Rangers, to represent the diverse and colorful group of Bomberman characters who patrol the galaxy.”


Super Bomberman R will release for the Nintendo Switch on March 3, 2017.
