Konami dropped a little surprise on fans this week whoa re still playing Super Bomberman R with a bunch of new characters and a few new modes to try out. First off, the new mode is Grand Prix, where two teams of three characters duke it our in an esports environment to see who the better tactician is. The two primary match types are below, along with the additional characters that range from Dracula Bomber (Castlevania) to Bubble Head Bomber (Silent Hill), all of which can be purchased in the shop.
- "Crystal" Match – two teams compete to earn points by collecting crystals. Watch out for bombs! If you're blown away you lose half of your crystals. The team with the most points at the end of the round wins.
