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.
