News: I'm a Contra, would you like to be a Contra too?



Konami has announced that the WiiWare reimagining of the Contra mythos, Contra Rebirth, will be released next Monday for 1,000 Wii Points ($10). As with all of the titles that are added to Nintendo's download service, the game will be made available to download at 12 noon (Eastern Time).

While the game's look and feel will be based on the classic 2D gameplay (including the Spread Gun) found in the Contra series, the storyline will be brand new and brings the Contra team of Bill Rizer and Genbei Yagyu back to the first appearance of aliens on Earth:

In Contra Rebirth, Chief Salamander and his Neo-Salamander Force travel back to 1973 AD to invade Earth. They land in Central America and take control of the Shizuoka ruins on the Yucatan Peninsula. There, the aliens plan the destruction of all the ?Contra" on Earth. The Galactic President calls on Lance Bean, a member of the elite "Contra" warriors to save the Earth, but his sudden disappearance jeopardizes the safety of the planet. Now, Bill Rizer and the samurai, Genbei Yagyu are the last hope for Earth and must pick up their weapons and defeat the evil Neo-Salamander Army before all is lost. Experience the fast paced action packed 2D side scrolling adventure that pioneered the Run 'N Gun Genre.


We'll have more soon.
