The Classic Returns! Contra: Operation Galuga Announced
The 80s classic makes its way to the new consoles

Konami and developer WayForward announced during last Thursday's (14) Nintendo Direct the return of the Contra franchise with Contra: Operation Galuga. The game will be released for PC and consoles in 2024.

The game comes to reimagine the 80s classic released for NES, bringing modern graphics and sounds, as well as new stages, new enemies, and bosses.

New mechanics, an updated weapon system, and a co-op mode for two players in story mode and up to four players in arcade mode will also be introduced.

"When the Red Falcon terrorist group takes over the Galuga Islands off the coast of New Zealand, elite Contra commandos Bill Rizer and Lance Bean springs into action, initiating an all-out war in which the fate of mankind hangs in the balance!

Run, jump, and shoot your way through eight levels using a devastating arsenal - including the spread shot, laser, and homing missiles - now with stackable upgrades and awesome Overload abilities! The intense action is customizable with three difficulty settings plus a variety of additional challenge options. The true Contra legacy begins now!"

WayForward is primarily known for the Shantae game series. Now, they aim to bring the Contra series back with updates while preserving the essence of the classic.

Contra: Operation Galuga will be released in 2024 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
