It's doing fine.

You play a lot of games and you can tell. A 60fps game is running twice as fast

Input and visual feedback running at twice the speed can be felt (by some)

I just tried it. Yes. The game is definitely 60 FPS now. Incredible. It feels so much better.

If a game suddenly becoming 60 FPS wasn't noticeable then nobody would care about 60 FPS at all.

If you care about frame rate you should be able to tell.

We heard this before with bomberman.

If it's an unlocked framerate how's it hold up? Or is it a rock-solid 60fps?

I actually totally agree with you, but just amazed there even has to be a tradeoff to begin with. :/

On the subject, I'm starting to wonder why Konami hasn't put a Bomberman on PC yet. I mean recently.

I know Konami had pretty much abandoned Bomberman, but it's kind of an opportunity for it to get into the modern online multiplayer market with a "live game." Last gen you had at least one MP Bomberman on each platform, and I think they should do that again this gen, even if it's F2P or filled with microtransactions. I wouldn't be offended by character and stage skins to be honest.

I guess Konami really is that devoted to pachislot and mobile.

Played a round of League Battle online and it's a night and day difference in frame rate and responsiveness. Graphics maybe took a little hit though? Haven't played in 2 weeks so not sure. Didn't notice any lag either. Hopefully it stays that way. Great update and it feels so much better to play. As long as lag doesn't creep in the more I play I'd say this is a great update.

Tested in handheld mode:
60 fps in 4 and 8 players mode.
30ish fps in world 6 boss.
40ish fps in story mode, performance depends on the level, it's improved, but definitely not even close to 60.
Controls feel even more improved and refined.
AI have been balanced.

Tested a few story levels on docked, and it's very close to reaching 60 fps, hopefully it will reach 60 fps within the next update.

This just became from a good Bomberman game, into a great Bomberman game.

I kept going back and forth with this game (was going to buy it, then reviews+impressions turned me off from it, then Konami fixed some of the issues with a patch, etc.) but then like two weeks ago I bought it and was saving it for later. I'm glad as hell I waited to play the campaign!

Go watch some 60fps youtube videos of video games and then watch some 30fps youtube of videogames. You should notice the former is much smoother and moves "faster". Then go back to Bomberman.

It's better. Though I can't tell too much between the 45-60 range, I don't think it's exactly a locked 60 either but it's hella close now.

Video is processing now, but should be fully ready to go soonish. All good to go. I just ran through 1-1 and 1-2.

If a person can't tell between 30 and 60, why would they even complain about 30 fps.

You can tell on a TV because it'll either display at 30 or 60 and it'll be obvious for anyone who can see framerate. It looks 60 in handheld to me but playoffs are on so I can't try it docked right now.

Controls & fps are much better, but there's clearly a visual downgrade. It's blurry but not as bad as Snake Pass. Did they also change the camera angle a little bit? I haven't played it in a while and I thought it's now more of a top-down angle than before.

Also, new levels are 4000 coins. Konami plz. I haven't unlocked even one of them and I can't stand collecting points. So glad with Konami's support however. I hope they figure out a way to enhance the visuals while retaining the fps in the future.

Yeah that's definitely 45fps up to 60fps. Glad I waited on this, I think I might bite soon...

Yeah looking at this, definitely above 30 but doesn't look entirely smooth to me, suggesting it's not a stable 60 (though I can't really say anything with more precision than that).

That's from story mode, the difference isn't nearly as noticeable there.

Multiplayer is night and day.

I'll definitely say that singleplayer isn't quite as smooth as multiplayer. Both are much better than before though.
