Full Contra Anniversary Collection game list revealed

We’ve already gotten the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, and now it’s Contra’s turn. Here’s what’s on tap for Konami’s latest compilation.

Get me Mad Dog… and Scorpion!

Is there a classic action game series that’s more highly regarded than Contra? In the 8 and 16 bit eras, Konami’s side-scrolling blaster was an action gamer’s dream.

The series included aliens, robots, and nightmarish horrors, all thrown at the player in rapid fire. It also produced one of the most fondly remembered arsenals in any game ever. Do I have to remind anyone of the spread shot?

Then again, as famed as it is, some reminders might be necessary. The Contra series all but vanished in the most recent few console generations after all. Thankfully, there’s the Anniversary Collection.

In the same vein as the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, the Contra set includes 10 games from the series, complete with extras. But while the Castlevania edition was lacking a few important titles, Contra is not.

Include are:

  • Contra (Arcade)
  • Contra (NES)
  • Contra (Famicom)
  • Super Contra (Arcade)
  • Super C (NES)
  • Contra III: The Alien Wars (SNES)
  • Super Probotector: Alien Rebels (SNES)
  • Contra: Hard Corps (Sega Genesis)
  • Probotector (Sega Mega Drive)
  • Operation C (Game Boy)

Like the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, Contra Anniversary Collection will cost you $19.99 USD when it hits the Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC. There’s no firm date as of yet, but you can expect the set to land some time this summer.
