(Random) “R” is for Rangers, Among Other Things (Super Bomberman R)

On the 3rd of March, Bomberman will make his triumphant return when Super Bomberman R releases on the Nintendo Switch, but just what does the “R” stand for?

This question drove one gamer/reddit user to contact Konami US on their official reddit account and this is the response he got:

“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.”


So there we have it. R is for Rangers, for Return and Reborn and sure this news won’t change the world, but it’s a nice little fact for what promises to be a rather interesting title when it releases next month.
