Contra 4 Tearing Up DS November 13

Contra's original hardass duo, Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, will return to spreadshot all over alien faces November 13 when Contra 4 from WayForward Technologies retails for DS. The date as well as the hardcore box art were revealed in a scan of the game's retail one-sheet on NeoGAF forums.

According to the one-sheet, a dedicated Contra 4 website should launch this month. The game is a throwback to Contra games of yore, complete with two-player cooperative play.

As implied by the game's title, WayForward picks up the Contra series where Contra III: The Alien Wars left off in 1992, ignoring the inferior titles made for the franchise since. For more information on Contra 4, check out Chris Remo's hands-on preview. nope
