Gradius for ColecoVision

Recommended Posts

So I'm very new to this community, and I can't really find much information concerning this, so here goes:
When will Gradius be available to buy again? Also, will it every be possible to buy the Rom (or pack of roms) the same way that CollectorVision does? Again, just a question, not trying to enrage anyone here. From what I've been able to see, roms are a no no here, but I can't really find out why. Thank you for your patience.

I do believe a Gradius re-release was planned for this year, but may not make it. Maybe 2020.

Yes, we will rerelease next year. Many many request. One thing holding us back was our custom PCB which required programming the game in the factory, which means low volumes were prohibitive.
Now we have a new PCB that we can program as required. That makes low runs possible.

I just bought this. $230...not too bad, but it matches with my Penguin Adventure and SGM case, so I think that's the whole set.

I am shocked. Let’s try to fix this ASAP.

There are a lot of them like this!  $230 I feel is the high end of "I wanted this, so I paid more."  I've seen some "out of print" homebrews fetching twice that.

I have Gradius and Penguin Adventure and love both games. The box and manual are really nice. Probably the best I've seen for any homebrew or large game company.

 

When Gradius is available again I want to pick up another copy for my brother. Will Penguin Adventure get another release?

Any chance we will see Pac-man DX be released? I have an old beta that doesn't really work very well on the Phoenix. It would be nice to have the completed version.

How about Space Invaders DX, The Maze of Galious and Lady Bug? I know DK is pretty much dead.

There is some talk going on. Fingers crossed...

Any chance the rerelease gets a Phoenix compatible upgrade?
