So after a decade, Konami finally does it right and publishes a true sequel to the original Contra series. Contra will always be one of my all time favorite games, starting with the original on NES and then Contra: Hard cops on Sega Mega drive which took the series one level above.
However, with the end of 2D era, Contra also vanished. There were some attempts the revive the series in 3D form which failed. There was a sequel Contra: Shattered Soldier released on PS2 which attempted to bring back the experience. However, it was not widely publicized and in attempt to bring the true Contra spirit back to masses, the spiritual successor is released on XBLA in the form of Hard Cops: Uprising.
This is a true run-and-gun game featuring two modes: Rising and Arcade. Rising mode features health bars and purchasable upgrades. Arcade is a mode for hardcore fans which removes these two thing. The game is developed by Arc System Works and published by Konami. It is already available for download on XBLA and will be released on PSN soon.
Here is a video preview of the co-op action:
