Feels like a monkey's paw wish: a new Contra, but it's of the overhead variety.

I'm at least interested to see who's working on it, but otherwise...not excited for this, at the moment.

As someone who liked Neo Contra, I find this to look decent.

Not a fan of the goofy shit like the Panda but I guess when a character like Fang exists, it's not out of line so much as not what I'd have wanted to see more of.

Well ... it plays like how you would imagine Contra in 3D , but i hope the artstyle was more colorful / anime

But i will definitely get it

NeoContra was a tight japanese arcade style experience to the core.

This on the other hand looks like generic twinstick shooter with Contra license slapped on.

Shame.

At least I'll have the Contra collection.
It definitely looks ugly and cheap as fuck but I can't say the shooting gameplay snippets shown in the trailer don't have potential.

Or should I say, it doesn't look like it's going to be Legacy of War Redux. :messenger_winking:

Game of Show right here.

I'm very optimistic this will continue in the tradition of brilliant failures to ressurect the franchise since Appaloosa murdered it.

Konami's 'Red Band' trailer captures the vibe they're going a lot better than the direct. Hard Corps meets NEOContra. Fucking unreal move.

Contra Legacy of War remake?

I'm very hyped for this one! I don't like how they are going with more cartoony characters, like the Panda. Contra Hard Corps had Fang and Browny but the game has more of a 80/90s anime, cool as shit, vibe instead of cartoon.

But it isn't like this can't work! It is cartoon but a good cartoon! Lots of explosions, Contra style action and bullets flying everywhere like it should be.

Please, someone tell me it isn't a Switch exclusive.

Wow! I changed my mind. It feels more like a comic than a cartoon. Even the Panda is cool!

Was hoping based on the title that it would be like Hard Corps: Uprising. Still looks fun but it's not what I hoped.

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.

Now I can be at peace! Nobuya Nakazato is a Contra legend! And I don't need to buy a Switch!

Ok, so I’ve read one article that clearly says Konami is developing it. I think it’s the fox engine because it has that toy soldier look to it, but with the fox engine’s hideous textures. If they just improve on the resolution of the textures, it wouldn’t look so ugly.

Oh, he worked on the story for Vandal Heart

Some people seem to be excited over this, what am I missing? Crazy pills? Brain parasites? Without the Contra branding this would be Indiegala monday fodder.

Graphics do look rough but I like the Hard Corps style they're going for. Also the action looks pretty bombastic so I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Visuals are bad, but yeah, I wanna believe the gameplay is there. Is it Switch exclusive?

Yeah the graphics looked rough (coming from someone that generally doesn't care) but i'm down for playing a gun wielding panda!
