Contra Mobile – Tencent and Konami revives classic shooter for mobile

I remember playing one of the many Contra consoles games long ago on SEGA Genesis, and it became the first ever 2D side-scroll shooter I have ever played. After a few lacklustre sequels in the past decade, Tencent and Konami announced Contra Mobile at the annual Tencent UP, presumably a China-exclusive title. The classic features are left untouched, and there is 2-player co-op as well!


4 playable characters are currently revealed, though a new one is currently shadowed, most likely as a post-launch update. A new feature added is 1 vs 1 PVP, which does not really seem interesting at all. There is a lack of game information now, including how will players be monetized. I can’t see the characters wearing fancy cash costumes… But worse had happened before. Stay tuned for updates!

  1. lacklustre sequels? are you kidding me? The only lacklustre sequels were for Playstation 1. And that was in ’90s.
