Wielding iconic weapons like the Spread Shot, Crush Bombs, and Laser Beam, as well as character-specific abilities including double-jumps, sliding, and grappling, plus the new power to Overload weapons for even more offensive and defensive options, players can expect relentless excitement and intensity as they tackle the game’s Story, Arcade, and Challenge modes.

The adrenaline-pumping experience is further fueled by the amazing music, artwork, and narrative from an all-star group of collaborators. Combining summer blockbuster energy with classic inspiration, the main score is created by composers Yuko Komiyama and Norihiko Hibino of Scarlet Moon, and features cinematic interpretations of familiar Contra tunes as well as original compositions. Meanwhile, the story and plot of the game were drafted in conjunction with Dai Sato and Naruki Nagakawa of Storyriders Inc., and the game’s key illustration is provided by renowned comic book artist David Nakayama. Other collaborative partners, including the game’s sensational voice cast, will be announced at a later date.
