After revisiting the arcade original on Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS in 2007, publisher Konami has announced that a sequel to its stealth-action side-scroller Russian Rush'N Attack is due as a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 download this fall.

Developed by freshly-formed Kuju Entertainment subsidiary Vatra Games and powered by Epic's Unreal Engine, Rush'N Attack Ex-Patriot sees the Cold War conflict revived in the modern day as players are "tasked with retrieving an abandoned member of [secret CIA branch] Harvest, re-evaluating the missile threat, and sabotaging it if necessary."

The "clandestine struggle" occurring in the "shadows of the Cold War" involves missions set across three environments--"a Siberian prison complex, a bio-weapons laboratory, and a nuclear weapons base"--with players able to "choose their own gameplay style by moving through each level loud and fast or silent and deadly."

    Looks rad, this is the closest we will get to a new Contra, and I will gladly take it.
