This is a nice surprise! Konami has announced today that the former Google Stadia exclusive Super Bomberman R Online is coming to Xbox One as a free-to-play multiplayer game in the near future.

This version's highlight feature is the "Battle 64" mode, which takes the form of an online battle royale in which up to 64 players are spread across 16 starting battlefields, with the winner being the last person standing.

Super Bomberman R Online features loads of customisation and an optional Premium Pack for £9.99/$9.99 with additional cosmetic enhancements and the ability to host private matches with rulesets including the Battle 64 mode, Grand Prix mode, and of course, standard Bomberman for up to 16 players.

"As Bomberman returns with the gameplay that has made the franchise a party game classic – blast through battlefields, find hidden power-ups and use them to blow away foes – the action in SUPER BOMBERMAN R ONLINE erupts to new heights with the “Battle 64” mode.

Delivering an original battle royale experience, up to 64 players are spread across 16 starting battlefields. As levels are cleared and players are whittled down, the number of battlefields continue to shrink until the ultimate final battle to be the last bomber standing."
