With the success of Bomberman I hope Konami and Nintendo can make another mid-budget titles like Castlevania, Momotaro, etc.

Or if they are willing to drop some cash, new ZONE OF THE ENDERS game....

It would be one of the top feel-good stories in the industry in awhile. Konami re-entering the fray via modestly budgeted AA releases of their classic franchises with Nintendo's help? After seemingly bailing on traditional games aside from mobile and PES? Amazing.

Ugh, don't get me hoping for something that won't happen, lol. Remember when Konami did those weird experimental Wiiware remakes? I know there was a Contra one.

I'd love some proper Konami classics to make a return.

Know what my dream collaboration would be?

Nintendo makes the same kind of deal with Konami that they made with Sega.

Contract Platinum Games.

Metal Gear Rising 2.

Otherwise I concur. Do something AA style with other franchises.

Given that MGS5 somehow ran on the 360 and PS3...

In all seriousness, if they bundled it with the existing MGS Collection (the MGS2, MGS3, MGS Peace Walker one) they could easily charge $60. Hell, that collection would sell even without MGS5.

Yep, i've been saying this for years now. I just hope Switch is the console for Goemon to make his return.

It'd be a welcome sign if we started seeing some games on the VC, to say the least.

I'd love to finally be able to play Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon and Goemon's Great Adventure outside of their legacy hardware.

Gradius ReBirth
Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth
Contra ReBirth

Awesome, awesome games. Felt like titles from some lost console - like a Sega Genesis with the SNES color palette and sprite trickery.

Gradius and Castlevania are historically extremely important franchises for Konami, and Silent Hill was very influential as well. Just give it time. These guys earned their spots, there's no contesting that.

I hope that it happens someday. I feel like MGSV getting a handheld release would work the same miracles for it as the Subsistence camera once worked for MGS3.

Were there any guest characters in previous games other than Master Higgins or Bonk?

I've been wanting those 2, Yugo, Snake, & Frogger, but I forgot Konami owned Sparkster, Contra, & Yu-Gi-Oh! We need a Bomber for all of their franchises. Hell, if we have Pyramid Head, let's go nuts & see some PES & Rumble Roses representation.

I mean, I would've just settled for Max & Mujoe before this, but now I've seen the light.

Between these awesome DLC characters and the recent patch I think I am going to have to pick Super Bomberman R up! Damn, Konami it's good to see you get something right after getting so many things so, so wrong.

The ReBirth series, yeah. They actually were pretty solid entries into their respective franchises.

Castlevania The Adventure Rebirth is legitimately one of the best classic Castlevania games, and I say this as a big fan of the series.

Agreed. Gradius and Contra ReBirth also are absolutely fantastic games, and if you like those series, I heavily recommend getting either (or both!), as well as the CV game. The trio is legitimately great.

Don't forget Bloody Roar! With so many other fighting games coming back, it's high time BR did, too.
