It's about time we had a Goemon topic.

I miss Goemon. Do you miss Goemon? Tak Fujii checked the series' popularity on Twitter last August, but it seems like nothing ever came of it.

I don't know what the hell's going on at Konami these days, since they've managed to kill off all of their franchises and turn into a non-stop Metal Gear factory, but I think that if one of their old franchises fits the 3DS well then it's Ganbare Goemon. They could even reuse assets from the recent(ish) pachislot games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34zaafL5ZpE this artwork seems like it would fit the 3DS perfectly IMO.

DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

I've been waiting for a rerelease or port of Mystical Ninja starring Goemon (N64), but I am constantly disappointed.

The PS2 game pretty much killed the series, though.

Shop smart. Shop Mario Mart.

I own Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, it's even about five feet away from me as I type this, yet I've never played it. It looks like a lot of fun though, and I'd welcome another Goemon game on the 3DS -- heck, any 3-D platformer really.

And the GBA/PSX (new age) crap.

Strangely enough, there was a DS game. I never played it though so I don't know what it's like. To this day, the Legend of Mystical Ninja SNES game is still one of my all time favorite games.

It does make me sad a lot of Konami's IPs got lost in their desire to develop Metal Gear Solid games. Goemon was incredibly popular in Japan, but even there it isn't what it used to be.

They should bring the other 3 SNES games over too if they start porting/remaking.

I bought the PlayStation version on the PSN a few years back. I couldn't get past the first town.

I have nothing more to add.

Some of the most fun I ever had was the Goemon game for the 64 which I can't remember but my god that was fun and hilarious.
