Konami released a new patch for Super Bomberman R that aimed to add new content and improve the frame rate dramatically. Players will now be able to enjoy a much smoother experience in game modes including online play where the latency has been reduced to encounter less lag. Along with these changes, Konami announced that it will be releasing new content themed around some of its other games like Silent Hill, Gradius and Castlevania.
Super Bomberman R 1.3 Patch Notes
The new patch for Super Bomberman R focused primarily on improving the frame rate of the game for smoother gameplay. However, it is still unclear at this point if the game now runs at 60 FPS. Latency to online matches has been reduced and other changes include some control improvements. Konami lowered the difficulty of the Beginner and Normal settings.
The new 1.3 Super Bomberman R patch also removed the Gem cost after continuing in Story mode in a vague "a certain number of times." New accessories were added to the shop plus four new Versus stages (White Cross, Lagoon, Max Speed, Power Zone) which can be unlocked through a reasonable amount of money. Lag in Online Battle will happen less often if every participant has a good connection so in order to find them, players can go to Other > Basic Settings > Network Settings to the very left.
