Top Ten Game Series by Konami that Need to Be Revived

Because Konami doesn't care about most of their established franchises, here are their game series that needed to be properly resurrected.

The Top Ten

1 Ganbare Goemon

Absolutely, plus the Ganbare Goemon series has a lot of games that still need to have more than a Japan-only release. Let's at least start with those getting a western release.

I missed playing the games during the N64 days, I hoped one day this series would return in a new light.

Because there hasn't been a new installment for this long-forgotten franchise since 2005's DS game(barring pachinkos). It's a real shame because this series was HUGE back in the '80's and (ESPECIALLY) the '90's, with so many releases on the Super Famicom, Game Boy, Nintendo 64, and the Playstation, yet saw very few titles on the newer consoles.

I’d pay for a remaster of Mystical Ninja starring Goemon(N64) for the Switch.

2 Silent Hill

Konami already cancelled Silent Hills for a damn pachinko machine, PLEASE GIVE THIS ALREADY DYING SERIES THE PROPER REVIVAL IT DESERVES.

Unfortunately these dumbasses decided to cancel it


3 Contra

Barring mobile phones(and again, pachinkos), there hasn't been a properly installment since 2010's Hard Corps: Uprising. Like come on, who doesn't want to run around blasting the ever-loving crap out of the aliens in a post-apocalyptic city?

4 Zone of the Enders

Only two games and a spin-off(as well as two animes). There's lot of great potential for this obscure series and with the announcement of The Second Runner M∀RS, there may be some hope... POSSIBLY.

5 Castlevania

Never fear, Simon Belmont is here

Not counting the Lords of Shadow reboot(or spin-offs/remakes), the series hasn't had a proper installment since 2008's Order of Ecclesia for the DS(yes, I am aware of Bloodstained Ritual of the Night but that's besides the point).

6 Gradius

The last game in the series(barring Gradius The Slot or Gradius ARC) was 2008's Rebirth for the Wii, which is a shame because this is a really fun scroll shooter.

Great game

7 Bloody Roar

Konami has bought out Hudson Soft with their IPs and hasn't done squat. This fighting game series last saw the light of day with the mixed 4th installment in 2003.

8 Rumble Roses
9 Suikoden
10 Boktai

It's a nice handheld RPG series that utilize the Solar Sensor(using the sunlight as an advantage). Only saw four releases(one of which is a Japan-only title) with the last game released on the DS in 2006.

The Contenders

11 Sunset Riders

This was an underrated classic, it deserves a mention.

12 Rocket Knight

This was Konami's answer to Sonic back during the Genesis days, and has never saw the light of day since 2010.

Several platformers need to be revived.

13 Snatcher
14 Bonk

This is yet another series bought from Hudson Soft and quickly faded into obscurity. The last game in the series(barring the mobile phone releases) was(albeit Japan-only) Cho Genjin 2 for the Super Famicom released in 1995.

15 Frogger
16 Metal Gear Solid

Without Kojima there's no reason to keep making any more games for this series.

17 Kid Dracula

Very underrated Castlevania spin off.

18 Dance Dance Revolution
19 Beatmania
20 Rakugakids
