The latest Super Bomberman R DLC pack is a whopper, including a new Grand Prix mode, nine characters from various Konami franchises, and even a new world for Story Mode! Launching today, Konami has offered this update at no cost.

The Grand Prix mode is a 3-on-3 mode where both teams compete in two kinds of matches: Crystal Match, where both teams gather point-granting crystals while dodging bombs, and Basic Bomber Match, which follows the standard Bomberman rules. According to the press release, Konami is apparently pushing this mode as a potential eSport.

Meanwhile, the nine new characters are culled together from Konami’s vast history: there’s Goemon Bomber (Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon), Dracula Bomber (Castlevania), Princess Tomato Bomber (Princess Tomato and the Salad Kingdom), Bubble Head Bomber (Silent Hill), Anubis and Jehuty Bombers (Zone of the Enders), Reiko Bomber (Rumble Roses), Shiori Fuijisaki Bomber (Tokimeki Memorial), and Option Bomber Type A and Type (Gradius). Yes, they actually made two Bombermans based off the Option weapon types from Konami’s classic shooting game.

Aside from the new Story Mode world, there are new stages and accessories avaliable as well.
