    Konami talks Contra reboot




    Konami is talking Contra reboot. There's no plan in place, but top men are thinking about making a newContra. One of those top men, Dave Cox, the head of development at Konami EU. In a recent interview, Cox said Konami would like Castlevania developers MercurySteam to work on the reboot."I dont want to be known as Mr Castlevania, and we dont want the team to be known as the Castlevania team. Working in a creative industry, youve got other projects and other ideas you want to work on," Cox said. "And thats something that we and Mercury Steam want to do. We want to work on other projects. Weve got other ideas."
    I love Contra. Id love to do Contra. At Mercury Steam weve got an original idea that I think is really awesome. Wed love to bring that idea to market and Im hoping that the success of Lords of Shadow 2 will allow us to do that."
    It's not as if Konami hasn't been thinking about the series for a while, now. Remember E3 2011? During Konami's press conference, the company showed off a Konami teaser trailer, but have been awfully quiet about the project since then.

    I agree! Contra is one of my personal favorites. Hands down, IMHO, Contra III for the SNES was by far the best contra game I've ever played. I can only hope that this "reboot" is as good as that one was.

    I think, if anything, Hard Corps gave us a "kinda" of an indication of how it "may" look and play. At least that's what I think. I could be wrong!

    I'm all for it. Contra on Nes is one of my all time favorite games.

    Man, good find for news. Contra was classic, and when I was a kid, I was one of few that could beat it without the code.... yeah right, I needed the code just like everyone else... lol

    Contra was the game back in the day. My dad and I use to play this all the time. You know it's a good game when my dad who barely spoke English and didn't play video games was a beast at it.

    Isn't that what Hard Corps: Uprising was?

    I think the name 'Hard Corps' is an homage to the old Genesis exclusive. It was so much fun raping the game with Browny, or going the alternate route into the arena instead of following the 'story mode'.
