The lights are on
At the very end of its pre-E3 press video, Konami gave its fans an exciting tease of things to come. Following the end of the presentation, a fireball curved through the screen, eventually forming the iconic Contra "C" logo. Under the logo, it said "They're Coming." While that was all the information that was provided, it seemed like a pretty clear indication that big thing are happening in the Contra universe. Also, site 1UP is reporting a rumor that the new Contra game is akin to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a big budget, 3D reboot of the Contra franchise.
