Konami announced today that three new DLC characters based on classic Konami properties will be coming to Super Bomberman R, which launched alongside the Nintendo Switch last month.

These three characters are Simon Belmont from Castlevania, Vic Viper from Gradius, and Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2. All of these characters got more cartoony redesigned looks for the game. No pricing or release date for these characters were revealed at this time, but DualShockers will be sure to let you know when those details are disclosed.

The announcement of these characters comes after Update 1.3 hit Super Bomberman R today. This update fixed many issues with the game, making its frame-rate more stable and the title less buggy overall, while also adding four brand new VS stages and two new accessories to the game for free.

You can check out images of the characters below. Super Bomberman R is currently available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
