WiiWare Gradius Please Konami!

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!
