So it seems they re-made Contra and it’s called Contra: Evolution and it’s out now on Android for 99 cents and it looks pretty good! Apparently now though there are two guys and two girls as the heroes. I guess for you iOS guys this isn’t big news as it came out in June for you, but like usual us Android people get the good stuff later.. blah… Anyway, I’ve got a quick PR for you with some details but more importantly I’ve got some screenshots and character art for you to see..
International mobile game developer CocoaChina/Chukong, in partnership with legendary digital entertainment company KONAMI, today announced that Contra: Evolution is now available for Android™. The classic arcade action of the 1988 NES title has been faithfully recreated with updated high-definition graphics and sound for the Android platform in the first fully licensed Contra game for mobile.
