Contra is coming to mobile next month in the shape of Contra Returns, and you can pre-register for the game right this second. Contra Returns looks to capture the beefcake-y blasting of the original in a smaller, more handheld form.
You can team up with players online for some co-op alien slaughter, or fight against them if you’d rather do that. There are plenty of different modes as well – team, story and challenge to name just three.
Want to watch a trailer that shows sweaty, ripped dudes picking up guns and doing pull-ups? Of course you do, so here’s one.
Told you. Contra Returns is going to be a free to play game with some IAPs. It might be pretty good – shooting things is always fun, and if the game can balance out the challenge of the original with some more modern ideas, it might just work.
