Contra: Evolution returning to App Store this Thursday

On June 24, 2013

We’ve all played it and we played it hard. The classic console game Contra by Konami will be reappearing in the App Store on 27th June. Yes, you read it right. Reappearing!

The official game Contra: Evolution had been released world-wide, a couple of weeks back. But the game was designed completely in Chinese, including conversations and menus. Since this wasn’t suitable for the Western nations, it was pulled by Apple in two days.

Konami wasn’t gonna give up that easy! Even before a month passes after the tragedy, they have finished up the game in English, with the help of CocoaChina. They’re all set to be back with a bang.

From the initial reviews, Contra: Evolution seems to be as good as the console version. Here is the release video of the game:

The game will be available starting this Thursday at $0.99 for iPhone and $2.99 for iPad. So, are we looking at one of the next week’s featured apps?
