For those who are unfamiliar with the long running Contra series, they are run-and-gun games that have platforming elements. The games feature stylized art, and bosses to fight at the end of certain levels. The first Contra game released for arcade cabinets back in 1987, with a home version releasing for the Nintendo Entertainment System a year later in 1988. The series has become a timeless classic over the years since it first released.
The bundle will launch sometime in the summer of 2019, but no exact release date has been revealed yet. The classic collection of games will cost $20, and is releasing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
