Tanaka stated that Konami will be releasing more remakes of old titles and revisiting past projects as the company moves forward. He suggested that digital distribution services like WiiWare could play a role in bringing these titles to players.
Our pals at Konami have never been shy to milk their classic franchises. In addition to that much of their back catalogue such as Castlevania, Contra and Gradius have already made their way to the Virtual Console.
With Hudson preparing to launch Star Soldier R it is easy to imagine that the Gradius series might be one of the first Konami franchises to get a lick of WiiWare paint. What do you guys think? Speculate away!
I would love me some castlevania on WiiWare.
Remakes are good. There's already a healthy supply of brand new original games so we can afford a few remakes of old games.
I'd like to see a Wind Waker spin-off title for WiiWare. Wind Waker's graphics are pretty simple and even though they are last generation, they still look good and should be able to done more quickly than Twilight Princess' graphics could.
I'm thinking of a brand new island with several dungeons to be found along with items and secrets. No sailing at all, just old fashioned classic adventuring. I don't know how many different dungeons they could fit into a game the same size as the Final Fantasy WiiWare game - perhaps three at most and a proper island?
I hope they remake that Moai head puzzle game. What was that game called anyways?
I would like to see a new castlevania on wiiware and not some remake. Rondo of Blood would be nice too as well as bloodlines
I am interested in some Bionic Commando goodness!
I think it'll be a puzzle game, cause WiiWare is all about puzzle games. (rolleyes)
@jg233: Thats Capcom, not Konami. >.>
Brand new old school style Castlevania WiiWare please konami
Can you say Zack and Wiki 2: WiiWare Adventures? I think that regular updates for ZW would be awesome over WiiWare. New puzzle levels every so often and they could use them to promote the retail game. And of course, I'm a Castlevania whore so throw in my Symphony of the Night please. Also let's hear it for shameless self promotion, here's a link to my blog: http://olimars-journal.blogspot.com/
Contra. Goemon. Contra. Castlevania. Contra. Goemon. Contra. Contra. Gradius. Contra.
Castlevania III remake on WiiWare!
....wait. Is IGA still head of the Castlevania brand? CANCEL THAT!
Not Konami, but...
Monkey Island !
Another Castlevania whore here too so...Yes please! Castlevania and Gradius content will delight me in several strange but erotic ways.
How about releasing some Castlevania Anime on the channel? huh? huh?
And dont give Iga ideas Kenryoku, The SotN remake on the PSP is dreadful
OMG if Konami started to release games like Gradius V and Contra: Shattered Soldier on WiiWare then I would quite literally be in Heaven. This is excellent news!
Definitely need a Contra game on WiiWare and I wouldn't say no to a Zack and Wiki sequel. Wouldn't image Castlevania turning up but who knows....
@wii-c-kid: Zack and Wiki is a Capcom game!
Contra, Gradius, Castlevania, AXELAY. Period.
I'm guessing PSP ports. I would rebuy Dracula X Chronicles on Wii Ware if it had Wii controls though...
Hmm, a remake of Rondo of Blood, much like the PSP one, seems obvious but at the same time, I'd just like to see a better emulation of the original on VC instead. Of course a remake of Castlevania III would totally kick ass! Come to think of it, we should be getting the original on VC pretty soon, hopefully.
Awesome could this mean a possible sequal to axelay? Heres hoping to more 2d side scrollers. After all Konami are responsible for great VC hits like Probotector and Gradius.
Bit of Rocket Knight Adventures anyone?
Hasn't SotN already appeared on PSN and XBLA? No reason for it not to show up on WiiWare.
I never played Castlevania SOTN but i heard that its the best in the castlevania series. I wouldnt mind if they put it on wii ware
This is great news!
@Will - Oh wow...rocket knight actually...rocked, imho. A new...'vision'...of the game would be sweet!
YAY. I woulde LOVE to see games such as Castlevania SOTN and Rondo of blodd, Gradius 3 and 5, TMNT 2 and 4 and many other greatness from Konami on the WiiWare
And in the end, we get Gradius. Fantastic
