You will be forgiven if you missed the final stinger at the end of Konami's pre-E3 2011 press conference. After all, that would have meant sitting through to the very end of Konami's pre-E3 2011 press conference, and that's asking an awful lot of anyone.

This is erotic for so many different reasons...
This is erotic for so many different reasons...

However, if you did bow out a little early, you actually missed what might be the most exciting (possible) revelation to come out of the whole, dull affair. Right at about the 54:30 mark of the conference video--which you could actually skip to at any point, since the whole conference was pre-recorded and not live--a quick flash of a burning "C" pops up, followed by the words "They're coming..."

Unless this is some mean-spirited jerk's way of announcing a Cybernator reboot, this pretty much has to be a new Contra game of some fashion. Who wants to play, "Name the platform you'd most want to see a new Contra game on?" Ready... GO!

If they go back to making a solid side scrolling shooter like the original, I'd be all in.

It's difficult to say, Part of me would love a big budget 360,ps3,pc Contra but on the other hand a new contra for xbla,psn sticking with the old formula would be good also, think i would prefer the latter, It was not that difficult to say after all, Dont know why I said that at the start but not going back and deleting now since ive added a few more lines of nonsense.

Since at the end it said it was by Konami Digital I assume it will be a PSN/XBLA game instead of a full-retail release

My money is on Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo announcing it as a console exclusive and reveal it at their press event next week.

Yeah, kinda curious what the eff that was myself. I suspect they're trying to find a way to advance the Contra franchise into modern standards without making it really fucking shitty. 
 
 I'm kinda skeptical.

It needs to be a castlevania style game. That would rock. Plus, it would be the right company to make it.

Contra 5 for consoles, maybe? I kind of hope it's for the 3DS and/or Vista, Contra 4 on DS was really fun.

That's exactly what I was thinking as well. I doubt they'd go out of their way to tease a portable or download based contra, what a normal 2D one would have to be. It must be some sort of weird 3D contra on a home console. Maybe project Cafe?

Who cares about a new Contra?
 
There's nothing about Contra that calls for a reboot or update. We already have good third-person shooters. Contra 4 was the most they needed to do with the series, so maybe just do another of those for 3DS. Or don't.

If it's like 4 or ReBirth in HD that'd be sick.

The iconic C of Contra! 
I hope this won't turn out to be some first-person or third person shooter Call of Duty or Gears of War clone. I can't see things turning out well if that is so.

I figure the safe route would be XBLA and PSN.  And, since I have not a 3DS, I hope it's XBLA.  Eh, what do I care? It's likely gonna be the same old uninspired shit.

All platforms. I want it on everything. 3DS, NGP, PSN, XBLA, Wii download nonsense. Everything. except maybe disc release. They'd have to make a /really/ compelling argument for a Contra to be worth more than $10 in today's age

Contra was listed among franchises coming to 3DS last year, wasn't it?  My bet's on that or a Bionic Commando-style 3D shooter with some kind of dumb cover-based shooting mechanic and "epic" plot.     Either way, "They're coming" sounds awful reboot'ish to me. EXACTLY WHAT CONTRA NEEDS!
I hope it's some kind of reboot. If they do a BC: Rearmed style remake I don't think I'm interested because my days of playing hard-as-balls 2D shooters is over. 
But the essence of Contra is army dudes fighting aliens, so I think they've got a real battle reimagining the game without making it some kind of inferior version of GOW or Halo or Killzone or etc...
