Two Bombers can team up locally to tackle the game's story mode campaign. Both players share lives and must work together to avoid deaths from friendly fire.
Players can also form a team and battle against A.I. bots in the "Battle Mode." The mode supports up to 8 players total (either humans or bots), and teams can be formed out of those 8. One Switch supports up to 4 players total via couch co-op.
For the Nintendo Switch only, WAN play is supported using up to 4 Nintendo Switches. Multiple players can play on one Switch and connect via WAN, thus the maximum number for "Combo Co-Op" is 7 (e.g., 3 players on one Switch, 4 on another. Or 2 players each on 3 Switches and 1 player on their own Switch).
Finally, the multiplayer "Grand Prix" mode also allows co-op against teams of A.I. controlled bots. This mode supports up to 6 players (humans or bots) total.
The 8 Bomberman Rangers, sworn protectors of the universe, take on the Evil Emperor Buggler and 5 dastardly Bombers. Our heroes will battle their way through 5 different but dangerous worlds, and face 5 villains in epic boss fights as they do.
