    When a console is released with so few game, this is not surprising.

    We’ll see if 1-2-Switch fares as well.

    Steam better be careful, the Switch might just become the premiere place to play silverware at this rate.

    500,000 people still support Konami?

    Think its more to do with Bomberman fans then Konami …

    This is great news because it means the Switch might actually get a port of the Ecchi Bombergirl game.

    Gotta love those Switch exclusives: “Spoon” “Knife” and “Fork”.

    Fucking autocorrect. Fixed it :P

  • Lepito

    1-2 Switch has more than twice the lifetime sales of Super Bomberman R in Japan alone.

    Be very scared.
