Super Contra Coming To XBLA

200511281638pix11

That?s right. Super Contra, the sequel to one of the greatest co-op games of the 8-bit era, Contra, will soon be available for download via the Xbox Live Arcade. The announcement was buried in Konami?s newsletter. Bill and Lance are back one year later to fend off the invading aliens in South America, with their huge arsenal of weapons. Unfortunately, this will be the arcade version that most current gamers most likely won't remember (and not the NES Version, Super C). But, on the upside there is the chance to whip out the Konami code once again.
