E3: 'Contra 4' gameplay video

A video showing gameplay from Konami's 'Contra 4' for the Nintendo DS.

Konami brings side-scrolling, alien-shooting action back with Contra 4, the first true Contra sequel since 1992's Contra III: The Alien Wars for the Super Nintendo. Black Viper and his alien hordes want to destroy humanity, and Bill and Lance (the heroes of Contra III) must stop them. Contra 4 hits the Nintendo DS later this year. Until then, you can play Contra III: The Alien Wars through the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console, or the original Contra arcade game through the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade.
