Super Bomberman R 2 was revealed on the Nintendo Direct Mini with a trailer showing some animation and gameplay. The animation gives a brief glimpse of the whimsical action-packed single-player story. It shows that a new villain has emerged after the events of Super Bomberman R and is threatening the universe, and it’s up to the 8 Bomber Brothers to stop them. The new villain remains a mystery for now, but the Bomber Brothers are up to the task of saving the Universe once again.

The gameplay shown in the trailer reveals the core gameplay as well as some new additions that will be introduced in Super Bomberman R 2 next year. The game will feature a new game mode or battle mode called “Castle” that has one player versus fifteen players. Players compete for treasure and are divided into two teams, the “Attack Side” with the attacking players trying to take the treasure on the stage, and the “Castle Side” with the defending player trying to protect the treasure from the other players. The defending player has to build their own defenses on the map to stop the attacking players from taking a key to unlock the treasure.

The new game’s story mode will contain several features, four of which are briefly shown in the trailer including Exploration, Base Building, Defense & Strategy, and it will have Boss Battles. Super Bomberman R 2 will also have other battle modes that may be familiar to fans of previous games in the series.
