Game Description

Twenty years after their first jungle mission, the legendary soldiers of Contra are still battling. The platform celebrates its 20th anniversary with this classic-style side-scrolling adventure for Nintendo DS. Guns-for-hire Bill Rizer and Lance Bean are up against a new alien threat.

Play through a variety of game modes, including classic Contra co-op play through the main storyline. Combine the abilities of multiple power-ups to create supercharged weapon combos, use a new grappling hook to get to places you couldn't reach before, and defeat the relentless alien army.
