Mercury Steam wants to reboot Contra series
Mercury Steam has done a pretty stellar job of jumpstarting the Castlevania franchise. Especially after the success of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the E3 2012 announcement of Lords of Shadow 2 and a 3DS spinoff. But the company has an even more ambitious plan for their future…
They want to reboot the Contra franchise.
That might prove difficult as Konami already announced a reboot of the series at E3 2011. And the franchise has received two reboots already: the grim and gritty Contra: Shattered Soldier in 2002 and the back-to-basics Contra 4 in 2007.
But Dave Cox, Head of Development at Konami Europe, thinks it can be done. He recently spoke to VG247 and said, “I know there’s going to be pressure on us to do another Castlevania game, but I don’t want to rise to that pressure. I want to do something else. I love Contra. I’d love to do Contra. At Mercury Steam we’ve got an original idea that I think is really awesome. We’d love to bring that idea to market and I’m hoping that the success of Lords of Shadow 2 will allow us to do that.”
Hopefully this means Konami will announce more about the next Contra game soon.
