Konami’s Goemon series – also known as Mystical Ninja in the west – is one of those franchises that we hope and pray will get a proper revival one day soon. Until that time, we’ll have to make do with Fangamer’s amazing range of officially-licenced gear, which includes shirts, pin badges, posters and even a vinyl LP. You can check out the full range here.
The Goemon series began life back in 1986 with the arcade title Mr. Goemon, and would find its way onto a wide range of systems, including the Famicom, Game Boy, PlayStation, N64 and – of course – SNES. The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is arguably the most famous entry for western players, but subsequent Goemon titles were localised for release outside of Japan, too.
While Konami hasn’t really done a great deal with the character recently, we may well be getting a spiritual successor thanks to Good-Feel, the company established by Etsunobu Ebisu, who previously worked at Konami and development many of the classic Goemon titles.
