Super Bomberman R Online was announced for Google's ill-fated Stadia streaming platform last year — and now it's heading to PlayStation 4. The free-to-play blow-'em-up will arrive on Sony's system "soon", according to the press release, with a confirmed release date promised for the near future.
Super Bomberman R Online plays just like a classic Bomberman game, but the twist is that you can battle with up to 64 players online. In other words, it's basically a Bomberman battle royale, and the console version will support cross-play.
The press release provides a quick breakdown on game modes: "While anyone in the world can jump into a 'Battle 64' room, the Premium Pack allows players to create their own private Room Match with rulesets that include 'Battle 64' mode, 'Standard' mode with up to 16 players or 'Grand Prix'. Grand Prix divides players into two teams of up to 3v3 to compete in earning points, with the highest total points after the two battle rounds wins."
Said 'Premium Pack' will be priced at €9.99 / £9.99 / $9.99, and it also nets you a bunch of character skins that pay homage to other Konami properties.
