Konami has officially announced a sequel to Super Bomberman R for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC via Steam.
In addition to classic action-maze modes, Super Bomberman R 2 will feature a new Castle Mode, according to its publisher.
Castle Mode is a 16-player mode where up to 15 players try to blast their way to treasure chests while a single player tries to stop them.
The game will also include a battle royale mode for up to 64 players.

Players will also be able to create their own battle stages.
The reveal of Super Bomberman R 2, which will be released next year, follow’s Konami’s announcement earlier this month that its free-to-play title Super Bomberman R Online will end on December 1.
At the time, Konami also assured players that the Bomberman series would continue despite the closure of the free-to-play game, promising something new would be revealed soon. That now appears to have been referring to Super Bomberman R 2.
“The Bomberman series is moving forward with new projects,” it said at the time. “We hope to be able to inform you of this project soon. Thank you for your continued support of the Bomberman series.”
