It turns out quite a few people do, judging by the comments on the story I wrote for Kotaku UK: Silent Bomber: A Forgotten PlayStation Classic
I’m surprised so many people remember it, to be honest. It sold less than 75,000 copies worldwide, and I’ve hardly heard anything about it since its release back in 1999. But it seems it was cherished by the few people who got to play it – and it really is a cracking game.
CyberConnect2 went on to develop the Naruto games and lately they’ve been working on the remake of Final Fantasy VII. Meanwhile Silent Bomber has only resurfaced once, being released on PSN in Japan a few years back. No sign of a rerelease over here, but we live in hope. And seeing the positive response from readers of the above article, a European PSN release would probably be well received.
It seems unlikely that CyberConnect2 will ever make a sequel to the excellent but chronically under-selling Silent Bomber. But I thought I’d send them a tweet, just to check.
@PIROSHI_CC2 I just wrote about Silent Bomber for @Kotaku_UK – I don’t suppose there’s any chance of a sequel?https://t.co/J1k3oW5E6v

And if you want to see the game make a return, I suggest you do the same.
