News: Gentlemen, ready your Spread Guns!



As they announced on Friday, Konami has added Contra ReBirth, a retro-tinged new entry in the Contra series, to the Wii Shop Channel today. The game follows on the heels of the similarly retro-styled Gradius ReBirth. Hopefully, this is just the second in a whole series of "ReBirth" reimaginings as Konami has a ton of franchises that could use a new look at an old style of play.

Two other games will be added to the Wii Shop Channel this week. The space shooter ColorZ (which sounds a little like Ikaruga) from developer Exkee will be available for 700 Wii Points ($7). And the final part of the Super Star Wars trilogy, Super Star Wars: Super Return of the Jedi, will be added to the Virtual Console by LucasArts.

On the DSiWare front, Nintendo will be releasing Clubhouse Games Express: Family Favorites, a mini-collection of card games for up eight players.

For more on all of these games, see below.

Chief Salamander and his Neo-Salamander Force travel back to 1973 A.D. 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 day, but his sudden disappearance jeopardizes the safety of the planet. Now, Bill Rizer and samurai Genbei Yagyu are the last hope for Earth. They must pick up their weapons and defeat the evil Neo-Salamander Army before all is lost.
