Over the past few years, we haven’t heard much about the coin-op classic Contra, with most thinking that their only chance to play the game on PS3 would be through LittleBigPlanet 2. Luckily, it looks like Konami successfully entered up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start, as Contra seems to have gained some extra lives, and could be making a return.
At the end of the show that saw ZOE, MGS and Silent Hill all coming to the PS3 as HD remakes, Konami showed the logo of one of their oldest franchises as flames spelled out the C in Contra. Nothing else has been announced about the game other than the fact that “they are coming”, so it is unlikely we will hear more about the game until the Tokyo Game Show this September.
