We already know that the Xbox One, PS4 and Steam versions of Super Bomberman R have some exclusive characters worth celebrating, including Master Chief and Ratchet & Clank, respectively. But now things are about to get really crazy, because we know who’s coming next. “Who?! WHO?!”
Austin Creed, also known as WWE’s Xavier Woods and the main man behind the UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, has officially been announced as a playable character in Super Bomberman R across the board. He has the same iconic look as he does in his New Day stable in World Wrestling Entertainment, complete with unicorn horn and, of course, his trombone, Francesca. You can see an image of him below.
Now...the question is how he would fare in a match against Master Chief. Hmmm.
You can see the company’s official tweet below as well.
