Gradius Arc? Color Us Curious, Konami

imageKonami may have come down with a case of shoot ‘em up fever and have a new Gradius game in the works called Gradius Arc.


They filed a trademark for Gradius Arc earlier this year, which was released into the wild Japanese trademark database today. Since it’s only a trademark we’re not sure what kind of game Gradius Arc could be.


Unless you count Otomedius, a spin-off, the last Gradius game was for WiiWare. Before that Treasure made Gradius V with Konami for the PlayStation 2.

    rar, I like shmups but for whatever reason I just could never get into Gradius, I could never quiet put my finger on exactly why.

    Im not really sure how a shump will work with a motion controller but dev reports say that the Arc controller works exactly as stated and some have said more responsive and accurate then Wii motion+. Still Im hoping Sony shows off an joystick attachment for this as playing RE5 with Arc sounds interesting but not if I have to use the dual-shock with one hand.
