Contra Evolution Discovered On Chinese App Store
2D shooter may be on its way to the U.S.
There are a few iOS games that play like Konami's Contra, but the publisher has yet to bring its shooting series to smartphones and tablets. That is, unless a new title on the Chinese App Store proves otherwise. Contra Evolution is apparently a thing, a port of the beloved original with controls adapted to touchscreen devices and spruced up graphics. There's even a video of someone playing it on both iPhone and iPad. For now, though, it remains to be seen if this game will officially arrive in the U.S., though considering the franchise's popularity worldwide, Contra Evolution should see a Western release. That said, look for Konami's official announcement or lack thereof, in case this game is a fake.
