Except unlike Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, we also have footage of Super Bomberman R’s new content to share, so if you’re wondering if the free content and game is worth getting (if you haven’t got it already,) consult the video below. It might just be the eye-opener you require.
At Miketendo64, we are no strangers to conducting interviews and while many have been with smaller devs, there have been a few with larger devs and last month, we got to do an interview with Konami, via a conference call.
During said call we got to talk with Richard Jones, a European Brand Manager will Konami and we discussed a range of topics from Super Bomberman R, to even Castlevania the Netflix series. While not everything we discussed can be shared, there are quite a few things we can, so without further ado, here are a few select statements from Konami’s Mr. Jones that we can make public: Continue reading [Interview] A Conference Call with Konami’s Richard Jones
Just like Konami said on Twitter yesterday, as well as a big update being on the way to Super Bomberman R, so is a small one!
Except that small one is version 1.3.1 and it is entirely bug/error focused, so if you had problems with constantly getting error messages when “internet matching,” this update will take care of it for you.
As soon as the details of the big character update, aka version 1.4.0 become available, you can expect to hear all about them here at miketendo64.com, but until then, keep on gaming!
