Super Bomberman R Online, the battle royale entry in the series, will be shut down on December 1, 2022. Konami didn’t offer exact details about why the free-to-play multiplayer game will be shuttered. It only noted the final day and stopped selling in-game items.
In game, people used to be able to purchase Bomber Coins and a $9.99 Premium Pack. The Premium Pack unlocked things like private matches, additional modes, and bonus Bombers inspired by games like Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill.
The last major updates for Super Bomberman R Online appeared as part of its third season. People could get Suikoden-themed items. Among them was the Suikoden 2 Hero Bomber. A Goemon Bomber joined in January 2022. However, on March 17, 2022 season 3 of the game ended without a fourth one being announced.
As for the future, Konami’s brief announcement regarding Super Bomberman R Online being shut down noted this isn’t the end for the series. The final statements said, “The “Bomberman” series is moving forward with new projects. We hope to be able to inform you of this project soon.”
Super Bomberman R Online will shut down on December 1, 2022. It is available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
