Even if Konami isn't exiting the console business, they should still sell these ignored Hudson Soft games to Nintendo.
I swear it's a damn shame that Konami was even able to lay their greasy ass palms on not only Hudson Soft, but bomberman too. People don't even realize, but bomberman had a really good following back in the day. They came out with so many damn games for this series it's not even funny. Talk about a far cry since now we can't even get "ONE" bomberman game (and NO I DO NOT COUNT THE CRAP MOBILE GAME). Wish Nintendo would put bomberman in smash bros too.
Bomberman 64 & Bomberman Hero were really good N64 games. I would love to see something like that make a comeback.
Hudson and Konami were my go to publishers in the day. Hudson was a huge supporter of the turbo grafx, which was my favorite console, so maybe I'm a bit biased, but they did have amazing games. When Konami acquired them they were still pretty good.
Bomberman! That game was pure fun. If there was ever a game that could be F2P and charge for cosmetics then this would be it. Bonk is such a classic, it's a shame that nothing has been seen or heard from this game since god knows when. I remember seeing some concept art for a remake Bonk a loooong time ago. It looked like the art style from Calvin and Hobbes. Maybe it was something similar to Bonk: Brink of Extinction. Faxanadu...NES rush of memories exploding my brain!
I absolutely love Bonk. I liked it better than Mario...at least the earlier ones, not the later ones. Hudson had so many good IP's. Ironically, Hudson actually did publish some mario games for the PC88 and other PC variants. Some of their more memorable ones were R-type, Bonk, Excitebike, Star Soilder, Neutopia, they actually have game publishing rights to Record of Lodoss War, Cotton, Langrisser(but believe that was sold), and probably more I can't remember. I think the Bonk game you're thinking of is Bonk 3D(working title?). It got cancelled in the merge with Konami.
Please, no more Bomberman!
Bomberman was always hit-and-miss. It definitely deserves another couple chances. The Game Boy one was good, try doing 3DS/Vita. At least port the mobile one to them. So lazy and stupid.
Adventure Island is my shit
I always wanted bomberman in ssb, but I want it 3rd party. Never heard of all those other games. They need sell a lot of stuff off if they ain't going to do anything with them. Like bloody roar I want that but if Konami has it it would never get another game.
