As far as upcoming games are concerned many people were shocked and excited to find that Konami will finally release another Contra game later this year. The cool thing about Contra Rouge Corps is the fact that the setting for the game will take place several years following the events of Contra III : Alien Wars which was popular back in the early 90’s following its release in 1992. It should also be noted that Contra: Rouge Corps will have similar gameplay to Alien Wars with the top down run and gun gameplay but only in 3D and with new characters. In addition, to having a single player campaign mode Contra: Rouge Corps will have a co-op multiplayer mode both online and locally which will only add to the replay value of the game even more so than Contra III: Alien Wars.
For years many people thought that the Contra series was dead especially considering the fact that the last time we saw a new entry within the series was 2011 when Hard Corps: Uprising was released. The fact that Konami decided to revive this legendary run and gun series with a new 3D title is something that has many fans of the series on the edge of their seats. As it currently stands Contra: Hard Corps is curt set to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows this upcoming Fall in September 2019. It will be interesting to see how successful Contra: Hard Corps will become following its upcoming release later in 2019.
