Contra Headed for Live Arcade

contra.jpgOne of my favorite games from my youth, Contra, will be making its appearance once more as a downloadable offering on the Xbox 360. Due to hit consoles this Wednesday morning, it will only cost you 400 Microsoft Points ($5) to keep and relive all of those experiences of getting hit by a bullet and forward-flipping to your death.

Not only will the game contain some improved graphics and sounds, achievements, and a leaderboard that’s customary for all Live Arcade titles, but you’ll also be able to play cooperatively through Contra‘s eight levels with a friend via Xbox Live. There’s no official word of the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start) being included but, c’mon! It’s Contra for crying out loud!
