Konami has revealed that Super Bomberman R is going to get some Gradius, Castlevania and Silent Hill-themed characters in a future update. No word on when this content will be available, but we'll be sure to keep you posted.
Wow, these are actually really cool! The game must be doing pretty well in sales for Konami to continue supporting it post launch like this (and the 60 fps patch).
This is so cool. I don't remember when a game turned from lackluster to pretty awesome post-launch like this!
I was just thinking last night as a stupid idea when playing the Super Bomberman R Update "Simon Belmont should be in this game as a crossover character." more jokingly than anything else. It's as if Konami read my mind!
Although I can't believe any of these new fighters aren't Metal Gear themed. That seems like the most obvious crossover character to add.
Next time they should make Higgins Bomber, Bonk Bomber, and Goemon Bomber.
I'm really pleased with how Konami has been handling this game.
Wow! Konami characters before Hudson Soft characters? Not that I don't like it, but I'd have expected to see characters from the original company first. I hope they bring back the Hudson Soft characters that appeared in Saturn Bomberman and include Momotaro from Momotaro Densetsu/Dentetsu.
Great fan service we're having here. "Belmont Bomber" does have a ring to it. I'd also like to see something of Contra, Frogger, or a Metal Gear. Maybe even something of City Bomber (1987 arcade) which would fit perfectly.
