Konami’s Contra is heading to the big screen and TV

Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. have announced that its action shooter game, Contra, will be made into a live-action movie and TV drama series.

Ever since its debut as an action-packed arcade game in 1987, the world famous “Contra” series has continued to deliver button-mashing fun across multiple platforms such as home systems and mobile devices. The latest game in the popular series is the mobile game, Contra: Return (“魂斗罗:归来”) which was released in China to critical acclaim.

In 2633, the evil Red Falcon Organization have set a base on the Galuga archipelago near New Zealand in a plot to conquer the world. Two commandos, Pfc. Bill Rizer and Pfc. Lance Bean of the Contra unit (an elite group of soldiers specializing in guerrilla warfare) are sent to the island to destroy the enemy forces and uncover the true nature of the alien entity controlling them.

However, there was talk about the film earlier this year when this teaser trailer was released.

That was being produced by Wei Nan (Soul Transfer Station) and backed by Beijing Starlit Movie and TV Culture. It was due out next year, but it is not clear whether Konami’s news is in reference to that or if they are starting again.

Further details about the production will be announced at a later date.
