Konami Teases the Return of Contra


Konami streamed a pre-E3 video showcase earlier this evening — which you can watch here, if you can get the site to actually load — and during the closing sequence an animation of a fireball shooting across the screen played before taking the shape of a flaming ‘C’, a tagline underneath simply stating, “They’re Coming.”

That is, of course, the identifying mark of the Contra series, an obvious tease for a new installment in the classic run-and-gun action series. If you’ll remember, Konami already released a pseudo-successor to Contra this year in Hard Corps: Uprising for PSN and XBLA, but I guess that was merely a stopgap before a full-on Contra reboot.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more details soon!
