One of the handful of titles launching alongside the Nintendo Switch on March 3rd is Super Bomberman R. However, a number of people have been wondering what exactly the R stands for. Well, the social team at Konami answered that very question on Reddit and stated that it symbolises Returns or Reborn as a homage to the Super Nintendo and Super Bomberman 3. It could also be interpreted as Rangers.
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.
