Konami has announced that Contra Anniversary Collection will release on Nintendo Switch, continuing to help celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.
This digital-only collection will contain Contra (1987, Arcade), Super Contra (1988, Arcade), Super C (1990, NES), Contra III: The Alien Wars (1992, SNES), and four more games that will be revealed in the coming months.
It will mark the classic run-and-gun franchise’s return to modern platforms, challenging you to grab power-ups and blast your way through waves of menacing enemies and bosses.
“Konami welcomes everyone, from those who were glued to their CRT TVs or the arcade machines back in the day to first-time players, to enjoy a part of our history,” Konami explains.
“All collections will be digital-exclusive and can be downloaded from the various online stores. We give our utmost gratitude to each and every fan from all over the world for playing our games throughout the years!”
Contra Anniversary Collection will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early Summer.
