More On: Contra Returns

Gamers that have been around for a while can probably tell you that the Contra series is some of the toughest games ever released by Konami. Now Konami has brought Contra to mobile devices once again with Contra Returns. The game is a reimagined version of the original arcade game and features over 200 levels along with new features, weapons, game modes, and more. After playing it a bit for myself it does play pretty well for a touch-screen run-and-gun game, though the controls may take some time to get used to. Either way, I'm all for a new Contra game so this will probably keep me busy for a while.


Los Angeles, California – July 26, 2021  – Contra Returns, a new addition to the legendary KONAMI run-and-gun action franchise, will be officially launched. Developed by TiMi Studio Group and KONAMI, Contra Returns is now available on iOS and Android globally, including North America, Latin America and Europe.
