KONAMI ANNOUNCES CONTRA 4 FOR NINTENDO DS
>
> Explosive Action Series Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Unique Dual Screen
> Presentation, New Gameplay Elements and Cooperative Multiplayer Mayhem
>
> FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
>
> REDWOOD CITY, Calif. ­ June 20, 2007 ­ Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.,
> today announced Contra 4 (working title) for the Nintendo DS. Marking the
> 20th anniversary of the quintessential action franchise, the game pushes 2D
> side-scrolling action in an all-new direction with gunplay that spans two
> full screens, original gameplay mechanics that grant players deadlier
> abilities than ever before, and frantic multiplayer functionality.
>
> Contra 4 takes place two years after the events of Contra III: The Alien
> Wars. After saving earth from invasion by Red Falcon, Bill Rizer and Lance
> Bean are confronted with a new extraterrestrial menace: the terrifying Black
> Viper. Joined by hard-boiled mercenaries Mad Dog and Scorpion, the warriors
> must once again wage war against an entire army of invaders.
>
> Refining the 2D side-scrolling genre the series established 20 years ago,
> Contra 4 delivers pure action at a fever pitch as players jump, shoot, and
> dodge oncoming hazards. Utilizing a new dual screen presentation, the action
> spans both screens of the Nintendo DS, giving players the opportunity to
> battle across expansive environments in which death can come from any
> direction. The use of both screens for the game¹s core action also allows
> for massive boss battles as players try to seek and destroy the weak points
> of sky-high enemies. A first for the series, Contra 4 introduces a grappling
> hook accessory that lets players grab onto elements of the environment
> directly above them. Whether using it to avoid oncoming dangers or attack
> from a strategic vantage point, the grappling hook allows for new combat
> situations and dramatic set pieces that underscore the game¹s
> adrenaline-soaked pedigree.
>
> Continuing the multiplayer tradition of previous games in the series, Contra
> 4 lets two players battle together against Black Viper¹s army of vile alien
> forces and reclaim Earth for mankind.
>
> Developed by WayForward Technologies, Contra 4 is planned for release on the
> Nintendo DS in 2007. For more information on the game and the Contra
> franchise, please visit: www.konami.com .
