While Contra: Operation Galuga will have a lot of familiar faces for franchise fans, it’s also going to include some brand-new characters that we’ll get to take control of. Today, we get to learn a bit more about who these fresh faces are and what they have to offer.

The Koalition had the chance to talk to WayForward’s Tomm Hulett about both Ariana and Stanley, two new characters you’ll have the chance to try out in Contra: Operation Galuga. Below, you can see some details on who each of these characters are and how they fit into the greater Contra universe.

Ariana is a native of Galuga Island, where her people have lived for thousands of years. Her village was overrun by Red Falcon soldiers following a meteor shower six months before the game, and she’s been surviving on her own since then, doing small raids on enemy outposts. She has a better sense of what’s going on than Bill and Lance do when they encounter her.

Stanley is the leader of the GX Army Special Forces. They have a bit of a rivalry with the Contra unit, so he’s not thrilled to see Bill and Lance (nor are they to see him) but everybody can put their differences aside for the sake of the mission. Stanley fights inside futuristic powered armor, which allows him to hover short distances.
