MercurySteam Wants To Do Contra

Castlevania: Lords of Shadows franchise developers Mercury Steam don't want to be known as just that. Producer Dave Cox says the studio wants to take on Contra next.

Speaking to VG24/7, Cox said that he doesn't want the studio to be just known for one thing. "Like I said, I know there’s going to be pressure on us to do another Castlevania game," he explained, "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."

Given MercurySteam's success with the Lords of Shadow franchise, we'd welcome it.
