KONAMI and WayForward released Contra: Operation Galuga, the newest entry in the groundbreaking Contra franchise, on the Switch back in March. If you haven’t picked this one up yet, perhaps an accolades trailer will do the trick. See what some of the press had to say in the trailer above!

A reloaded, reimagined, reborn update to the revolutionary Contra NES/arcade game from the 1980s, Contra: Operation Galuga redeploys players to the Galuga Archipelago, where they’ll take control of elite Contra commandos Bill Rizer and Lance Bean (as well as other warriors) to battle the otherworldly Red Falcon terrorist group. Using an assortment of iconic weapons such as the Spread Shot, Laser Beam, and Homing Missiles, players will run, jump, and shoot their way through burning jungles, frigid mountains, a grotesque alien lair, and more. Character-specific abilities, devastating Overload powers, and unyielding bosses keep the action intense across Story Mode (1-2 players), Arcade Mode (1-4 players), and Challenge Mode (1 player), while variable difficulty settings and perks provide options for gamers of all skill levels.

The timeless gameplay is reinvigorated for the modern era through detailed, effects-laden graphics, a spectacular voice cast (including Steve Blum as Bill Rizer, Alejandro Saab as Lance Bean, Angelita Esperanza as Ariana, and Kira Buckland as Lucia), and an explosive musical score. Beyond the main soundtrack by Yuko Komiyama and Norihiko Hibino, players can unlock several alternative soundtracks, including a “Retro Remix” of classic Contra tunes featuring RichaadEB, Alex Moukala, Jemy Hiiragi, Banjo Guy Ollie, Eirik Suhrke, and BraveWave Productions artists including Evanescence’s Tim McCord. Both the original soundtrack and the Retro Remix are available for download and streaming on digital music services.
