The Contra series is one of the most beloved of all time, and Contra: Hard Corps was one of its most beloved installments. Now, in 2011, Konami is back at it, releasing Hard Corps: Uprising as a 2.5D love-letter to fans of the original. Players will take the role of Bahamut, who enigmatically shares a name with the adversary in the original game, and can plan on blasting their way through a variety of explosive levels.
Despite its old-school pedigree, the game boasts many modern features, principally in Rising Mode, which adds upgradable weapons and special moves to your characters’ arsenal. Those of a more old-school sensibility can stick with Arcade Mode, which jettisons such new-fangled conveniences. No matter which variety you choose, Contra’s legendary difficulty is sure to rear its ugly head at some point or another. This full video walkthrough is provided to ensure that you make it out in one piece.
