When is Konami going to finally announce a new game for their greatest franchise, Goemon?

I've waited long enough!

Does anyone even care about Goemon anymore? :(

I feel like I've been waiting since the Edo era.

Goemon's Great Adventure has always been my favourite. Great co-op game.

It’s definitely time for a comeback perhaps in the style of super bomberman r, build on the classics and get the foundation of what made the games great. Then expand in an all original sequel

Hate to say this, but Konami barely cared about Goemon back when they routinely made games...

I will say that the first Goemon for the N64 is an underrated gem and Legend of the Mystical Ninja is one of my favorite SNES games.

Samurai Warriors Spirit of Sanada only came out last year though. Goemon is in that! :9 Persona 5 too!

Kidding. I know you meant the Konami series. Well, all I can say is that Konami only cares about the pachinko, MGS, and Yugioh bux these days. I'd not expect one anytime soon, sadly.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon was one of the first N64 games I ever owned as a kid. Fuzzy memories, but I recall my father picking it out for me at one of the department stores we were visiting at the time, and I remember throwing a tantrum because it wasn't Mario related.

Jesus, did I ever regret acting like a little shit. What a game, loved the music, aesthetic, gameplay, everything. I never got into Zelda that generation, but Goemon was all I needed.

I'll admit I used to be scared of a lot of the water levels in the N64 game. I think it was because of the weird and zany designs surrounding the enemies and monsters.

The second game on N64 was so different but I remember loving the co-op action all the same.

Bring it back!

Goemon's Great Adventure is one of my favorite games ever, even if I didn't finished, it's soundtrack is something else.

Too bad is fucking expensive now.

I'm really glad I own both N64 Goemon games. Easily among the best on the system.

I actually got a copy 2 winters ago now for 60 bucks from a game shop, but got super lucky last winter and picked up a spare copy from an odds and ends shop for 15 bucks XD

I like you for having such a good taste, but dislike you for being so lucky and get those copues :p


Just kidding, amazing find! Game is truly amazing.

I have some funky luck when it comes to retro games, you should see my Dreamcast and Saturn collections(actually you can see the latter over in hangouts in the Saturn ot)

But yeah, would love to see a Nintendo backed return on switch, and who knows it could happen, they could license the ip for good feel to use

Well you could argue the same happened with Bomberman there a few years where they released more than one game, sure across multiple platforms but that sure didn't help it.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon (the 3D one for N64) was a goddamn masterpiece and the number of people saying "who?" in this thread makes me sad

God that game fucking ruled

I would love another but Konami is Konami so I don't see it happening

I love Goemon! The first N64 game is one of my favourite games ever. I've been collecting the various obscure Japan-only titles in recent years. I got the DS game not too long ago. In Japan, you still see his face pop up from time to time... advertising slot machines and pachinko :(

The team that made those games is working at Yoshi games now
oh dang, I didn't know it was THAT team that started GoodFeel. I'd love them to make another WarioLand game, Shake It was pretty nice.

The fate of the Goemon IP is a bit grim albeit not impossible, Konami is sitting on a LOT of IPs especially after absorbing HudsonSoft. I am still a bit surprised they made a new Bomberman game.

But yeah Contra, Rocket Knight, Gradius, Parodius, and many other IPs are still dormant to this day.

I'm now reminded of how Victor Ireland tried to localize the PS2 game, and failed miserably.

I still have some really great memories of renting Legend of the Mystical ninja back in the day. What an awesome game, the password system wasn't so awesome though, never managed to write down a single one correctly LOL

The first N64 game is one of my favorite Zelda style adventures ever. It's been so long since I've even looked at it.
