RUMOR - Konami bringing their WiiWare trilogy to Switch, and including a brand-new 4th title

Rumor has it that Konami is bringing some games to Switch, and their plans include some ports and a brand-new title.

Back on the Wii, Konami released a series of ReBirth titles featuring classic brands. Gradius ReBirth, Castlevania The Adventure ReBirth and Contra ReBirth were all pretty fantastic titles, and word on the street is that they're coming to Switch. Along with those titles, Konami is apparently working on a 4th ReBirth title, but no specific details on that project have been leaked.
