・Adjusted the heights and slopes on some maps to improve the visibility.

・If you continue a certain number of times in the Story Mode, you will be able to continue without paying anymore gems.

・Changed the BP (Battle Point) increase/decrease rate for the League Battle.

・Fixed other various small bugs.


Super Bomberman R had a few problems at its launch, such as controller lag issues and a lacking number of stages. The game’s already seen one patch to improve the lag, and it looks like another is due out later today to address other concerns. A tweet from the official Japanese Bomberman account announced it, stating that the game will see some overall quality tweaks, difficulty adjustments, and a new stage.

It’s great to see them taking the time and effort to improve the game, enough so to make me want to give the game another go myself. Here’s hoping they keep it up, and I might have to work it back in more regularly.
