Konami hasn’t said much about Gradius ReBirth, but it’s one of next week’s three WiiWare titles in Japan. Midnight Bowling (aka Hamaru Bowling) and Strongest Silver Star Reversi are the other two sold for 1,000 Wii Points ($10) and 500 Wii Points ($5) respectively. The sparse description makes it sound like Gradius ReBirth is, in fact, Gradius with a fresh coat of paint and some mysterious Nintendo Wi-Fi connective feature. I presume this will be used for online leader boards. Gradius ReBirth supports four control schemes: a lone remote, a remote/nunchuck combo, the classic controller, and a Gamecube pad. While we’re digging around for more information before Gradius ReBirth debuts on September 2nd check out some of more screenshots.
