Super Bomberman R is one of several Switch launch titles and many gamers have been curious what the “R” means in the title of the game. Konami, the company behind Bomberman, reveals just that on Reddit.
“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.”
