The series that made the Konami code so world renowned is finally receiving some love as a collection on various formats later this year. An exact release date is yet to be confirmed. They have, however, finally detailed the all the games that’ll appear in this collection.
Here are the games you can expect to play when it launches:
- Contra (Arcade)
- Super Contra (Arcade)
- Super C (NES)
- Contra III: The Alien Wars (SNES)
- Contra: Hard Corps (Sega Genesis)
- Contra (NES)
- Contra (Famicom)
- Operation C (Game Boy)
- Probotector (Sega Mega Drive)
- Super Probotector: Alien Rebels (SNES)
It’s fantastic to see so many formats being supported in this collection. It would have been awesome if they included the discontinued WiiWare exclusive, Contra Rebirth, but at least the titles that are there are considered classics of their time.
If you grew up with a Golden China (knockoff NES) in SA, then you’ll be pleased to hear that there will be a free update that’ll include the Japanese versions of six of those titles (Contra, Super Contra, Super C, Contra III: The Alien Wars, Operation C, and Contra: Hard Corps).
