Most of us who played video games back in the 90s know and love the 'run and gun' classic Contra. So here is some exciting news for the fans.
Its creator Konami released an anniversary 10-game collection of all the Contra games.
Further, a Brazilian studio is developing a tribute to Contra called Blazing Chrome.
Read on to know more about the stories.
Europe and Australia-specific titles Probotector and Super Probotector: Alien Rebels, where the heroes become robotic soldiers, are also featured in the collection.
It will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
JoyMasher, a Brazilian studio (famous for Oniken and Odallus: The Dark Call) is in the process of developing a Contra-inspired title, Blazing Chrome.
In the place of Bill and Lance, it will have a Robot called Suhaila and a ninja called Raijin.
Konami is keeping the Contra series alive with various spin-offs and sequels.
Contra Rogue Corps is another in this line and will be akin to Super C and Contra 3: The Alien Wars, meaning it will be played top-down as opposed to the traditional sideways.
The Nintendo Switch game will release on September 24 and will feature single-player as well as a multiplayer mode.
