Contra Anniversary Collection is releasing by its developer Konami. The retro classic series primarily developed as a coin-operated game in 1987. However, many other versions of the legendary game came into the scene with Super Contra in 1988.
So, now Konami gave a treat to its fans with this exclusive anniversary collection. This collection will hold all the classic that fans remember and other offshoot games that may not remember as part of the Contra series.
Contra Anniversary Collection is the reminisce of initial contra
In the month of March. Konami revealed four parts of the anniversary collection. And now, a whole list of the collection is included in the library. Moreover, the full set of the collection is released which covers almost all of the games that fans are interested in.
I can't even get mad at this. The thought of Konami celebrating their arcade legacy with Typhoon and not, say, Green Beret is incredibly funny.

Contra Anniversary Collection is bucked up with all the arcade, NES version and also the Famicom version. Arcade version of Super Contra and NES of Contra C are also included in the collection. In addition, Contra 3: The Alien Wars is the centre of attraction in the anniversary collection.
Another, the cutoff line for the Contra Anniversary Collection, includes the SEGA Genesis Contra: Hard Corps. Thus, this version is more likely to move the series into the modern era.
Other versions of the Contra series are also included
As the collection includes a myriad number of games that are released until now, the main attraction for fans will be the Contra games that released earlier. The European version of the Contra and Contra 3 are also included in the collection named as Probotector and Probotector: Alien Rebels. In addition, there are also Japanese versions of the games which translated overseas by Contra.
The Japanese version includes the list as
- Contra (Arcade, Famicom, and NES)
- Super Contra (Arcade)
- Contra C (NES)
- Contra 3: Alien Wars (under SNES)
- Probotector (Sega Mega Drive)
- Operation C (Game Boy)
- Contra: Hard Corps (SEGA Genesis)
Therefore, the earlier success of Konami from the Castlevania collection, the franchise is having high expectation from the anniversary collection. Whether the collection hits the markets or gives a false anticipation Konami is happy for doing all things right.
The Contra Anniversary is releasing in late summer under PS4, Xbox and Nintendo switch. And the price is merely low with 20 US dollars.
