TOKYO--One of the classic side-scrolling shooting games responsible for the genre's explosive proliferation in the 1980s is making a comeback. According to a press release from Sony Computer Entertainment, Konami is currently developing a new Gradius game for the PlayStation 3. No details about the game have been disclosed yet.

Konami has announced six games for the PlayStation 3 thus far. Aside from Metal Gear Solid 4 and the new Gradius, the company is developing a new installment in its Jikkyou Pro Baseball series, as well as three unnamed games in different genres: a soccer game, a new action game, and a new role-playing game.

Can't wait for this, which I guess is pretty obvious considering my user name.

I hope Konami lets Treasure studios lend a helping hand like in Gradius V.
