Konami Is Considering Reviving Other Older Franchises Based On Super Bomberman R’s Success

While they’ve made some questionable decisions over the last few years, it’s nice to see Konami reviving one of their classic franchises for the Switch’s launch. The company is one of the few third parties present at the console’s launch, releasing Super Bomberman R. However, Konami has a massive collection of IPs that haven’t received such a treatment. In an interview with Just Pause, Konami’s Benjamin Kinney was asked if Bomberman’s revival could mean the return of other retro characters. He gave quite a generic answer, but it’s good that these older games are still on the company’s mind.

If Super Bomberman R proves to be successful, can we count on seeing more classic Konami IP – such as Boktai, Goemon, and Suikoden – being revived?

Regardless of Super Bomberman R’s success, we are always evaluating opportunities for all of our IPs.

  1. ||Mystical Ninja at once, even a remake of Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon is enough…||

      I’d die & go to heaven if I could play Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon from the N64 with awesome overhauled graphics & great HD quality! I miss the music from that game. Especially that starry night sky area!

    1. They are saying this:

      Sure, we are always thinking about opportunities/releases for our ips but if we make some $ from Bomberman you can actually count on some more releases from us.

          1. I guess that’s halfway right. They probably won’t do more bombermen of that kind if this one doesn’t do well. Definitely makes sense.

            But, going by this. If bomberman bombs but then later they feel like “this is the time for boktai, it’s really gonna sell”.
            They’re not gonna decide “bomberman didn’t sell, we’re not making boktai”.
            Will still make that game.

    1. They could use the light sensor on the Switch to detect whether its night or day :D
      Boktai was an awesome game when I was a kid. I remember when I used to play the game a lot outside when my family went on vacation or we’d go out to the countryside :D

      Best game and a Switch Sequel/VC game would be awesome

  2. Wish they would just sell Team Silent / All IP of Silent Hill to Capcom. At least they know somewhat what to do with their Suvival Horror series.

    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon from N64 getting a remake would be nice. Just don’t change the music, story, or overall gameplay and I’ll buy it in a heartbeat.
