Konami teases new Contra with fiery logo

During the last moments of Konami's pre-E3 press conference, a fireball curled around the black screen revealing the classic Contra logo.

"They're Coming" the teaser announced. No other information was provided, but we're hoping "they" will be coming to E3 2011 next week. Shacknews will be on deck to bring you the most important news from the show.

Konami had a number of announcements during the conference, including HD collections for the Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Zone of the Enders franchises. Additionally, Hideo Kojima teased an unannounced multiplatform project which will utilize his production company's new proprietary "Fox Engine."

The short trailer is available below [via GameTrailers], but we recommend you do not blink.
