Super Bomberman R gets “significant update”, fixes control issues


Super Bomberman R received a “significant update” over the weekend, fixing a host of control issues on Nintendo Switch.

Here’s the full list of fixes in update 1.2:

  • Adjustments have been made to reduce the input latency.
  • Controls are now more precise to reduce the unintentional direction changes.
  • Character speed has been adjusted so players can make quicker and more agile moves.
  • The characters are now behaving more naturally when in front of a pillar or a block.
  • Making a turn while running along a block or a pillar is now easier.
  • A kicked bomb can be stopped more precisely.
  • Fixed a bug that made the game ignore some button inputs when packet loss occurs.
  • The lag felt when planting a bomb has been reduced.
  • Sudden direction changes are easier to make.

We enjoyed Super Bomberman R in our review, but said the title was ultimately too pricey. It’s available now on Nintendo Switch.
