Japanese publisher Sunsoft, perhaps best known for its NES release Blaster Master and subsequent sequels, will be resuming operations in North America the company announced today, soliciting a little relaunch help from Gaijinworks.

For those unfamiliar with Gaijinworks and their singular title Miami Law for the Nintendo DS, the company was formed by ex-Working Designs president Victor Ireland, publisher of fine Japanese imports in fancy packaging. Working Designs closed its doors in 2005, with Ireland spawning Gaijinworks a year later.

Sunsoft's first release in North America will be the Wii Virtual Console release of Blaster Master for the NES, a 500 Wii Points download due sometime during the month of December in North America.

"This first Wii release is a great start, but there is one upcoming announcement in particular that will demonstrate just how serious Yoshida-san is about rebuilding the Sunsoft console gaming brand here," Ireland teases in the official announcement. "Game fans are going to be pretty happy when they hear about it – I know I was."
