Along with the multi-platform launch, SUPER BOMBERMAN R ONLINE will also be introducing new in-game seasons for all platforms, including Google Stadia. Each season will last three months and bring new items, cosmetics, and a new Bomber hero. Season 1 is headlined by the addition of Metal Gear Solid veteran, Old Snake Bomber, obtainable with in-game “Bomber Coins”.
Content available as part of a season may only be acquired during the three months that each season lasts.
The Silver Pass will be free for all players; the more they play, the more they can level up their rank and earn cosmetic rewards. Rewards include taunts, accessories, and poses. There will be 100 ranks within the Silver Pass.
The optional Gold Pass offers greater rewards over 100 ranks, including many more cosmetics and other items that do not directly affect gameplay. The Gold Pass will be available for 800 Bomber Coins, a currency that can be purchased in packs via the in-game shop or on the platform store. Bomber Coins are also offered as Gold Pass rewards. The ranks and content for both the Silver and Gold Bomber Passes are seasonal, so players will need to climb up the ranks again once a new season starts to earn more rewards.
