Contra Rogue Corps Resurrects Konami’s Dead Franchise

Konami is bringing Contra back from the dead with its new release: Contra Rogue Corps. This four player co-op game will release on the Switch on September 24, 2019. The action game requires each player to have a copy of the game to play local wireless or online. The jury is still out on the graphics – they look a bit generic and muddy at the moment – but hopefully the gameplay holds up to the older games in the series! We’re looking forward to blowing up some alien scum soon.
