CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS Announced

The classic Contra franchise is getting a new entry, as Konami announces CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS, which is coming to PC and consoles on September 26th. For those who can't bear that wait, they also announce the release of the Contra Anniversary Collection, a collection of 10 games fro the series. The Windows version is now on Steam, and this launch trailer offers a look at what to expect. Here's the CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS E3 2019 RED BAND Premier Trailer (NSFW) and here's word:

Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V. today announced the return of the Contra franchise to console and PC with CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS. On September 26th, players will experience the series that inspired countless shooting games since its 1987 debut.

Adding to the surprise of CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS’ development and upcoming launch, KONAMI is also pleased to announce the Contra Anniversary Collection, containing 10 classic games in the storied Contra franchise, is now available for purchase on all digital game stores.

CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS is a twin stick, third-person action game drawing upon its roots in fast and focused combat developed for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (STEAM). From the director of CONTRA III: THE ALIEN WARS and CONTRA: HARD CORPS, Nobuya Nakazato instills more than 25 years of franchise pedigree into CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS with enormous crazed enemies, over-the-top violence, and a cast of diverse playable characters that add to the irreverent tone of the game.

Several years after the events of the Alien Wars, CONTRA: ROGUE CORPS follows a former military group living on the fringes as bounty hunters and treasure finders in the Damned City. Survival requires fast reactions, powerful weapons and the occasional organ and cybernetic augmentation. Players will complete missions in PVE campaigns, gathering resources to upgrade their guns to stay alive in the Damned City. If all else fails… bring in a friend and mow-down enemies together in online and local multiplayer modes!

Key Game Features:

  • Action shooter with fast-paced, run & gun style gameplay
  • Choose from 4 diverse characters with their own unique skills and specialty attacks - determine weapons load out, customise and craft unique weapons and create a perfect symphony of destruction throughout the Damned City
  • Operation Room – Upgrade characters and abilities, augmenting each with improved organs and cybernetics
  • PVE – Deep single player Story campaign mode chock-full of challenging missions among hordes of enemies. Go solo or group with up to 4 friends or random players online* in multi-player
  • PVP – Create custom matches (private mode) for 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 or 1vs4 players*
  • Local Couch CO-OP modes with up to 4 players**
  • Four diverse characters with their own unique skills and specialty attacks:
  • Kaiser – A soldier from the Alien Wars rebuilt after receiving massive injuries, now has a massive arm that transforms into a drill.
  • Ms Harakiri – Famed assassin specialising in stealth and infiltration, after barely escaping death during the Alien Wars, she fused together with an alien, now taking residence in her midsection.
  • Hungry Beast – Once the noted (human) scientist Kurt Steiner, he had his brain inserted into a giant cyborg panda and now spends most of his time looking for delicious snacks.
  • Gentleman – Brain Bug alien raised by humans. Feels the rest of the team are ill-mannered and vulgar, especially the Panda. Argues over table manners and the neatest and most efficient way to dispatch an enemy.

I'm not a hardcore Contra fan, but I find these visuals and perspectives to be pretty offensive (in Rogue Corps). Contra was about tight shooting and controls, but here it's real hard to tell where your shots go and movement seems really ... imprecise. There's been good 2.5D Contras before, why not do that?

It looks fine gramps.

Blue I think that's the Anniversary Collection trailer, at least that first link. The second link, for Rogue Corps, looks pretty fucking awesome, in terms of mindless explosions and mayhem.
