As far as I could tell, there was no Contra content in Konami's Pre-E3 Show 2013. Maybe they are saving this as an E3 surprise. Whatever it is, we'll probably know more soon.
Perhaps it has something to do with that teaser from 2011.

actually a contra game where it auto run and all you do is jump and aim shoot direction sounds pretty fun. it'd be like hard corps speed run and you need quick reflex for jumping and shooting etc, if they add ability like dodging bullet and tackle ala hard corps, it sounds even better

Wasn't Run and Gun already a Konami game? It was either them or Namco but I'm pretty sure it was Konami.

Thought so. I can still remember hearing the "Let's watch the re--" *skips replay* "No replay!" It was right next to a Samurai Showdown machine. There was a part 2 also. Pretty good games and one of the most satisfying 'dunk-cancel lay-up' mechanics ever.

Contra 4 really brought me back to the times of Contra and Super C, it felt like a true Contra 3.

Not that the real Contra 3 wasn't great, but it focused on bosses and sub-bosses too much. Hard Corps and HC Uprising went overboard too. I like my Contras a little more deliberate, like the first two or Operation C.

Soooo good once you learn how to avoid the few background objects that can kill you even though they don't look like they're in your way.

Yup, it was confirmed on Sony's podcast that it'll be hitting Tuesday as a PS2 Classic. Looking forward to trying it. Wonder if they'll get around to adding Neo Contra to the US PSN one of these days, though I've heard it's not as good.

Couldn't help but think of the Gunstringer, which actually wasn't that bad.

Maybe we'll get lucky and it'll be a XBLA/PSN title something among the lines of Contra Rebirth on WiiWare.
