Konami and Arc System Works are still plugging away at the anime-styled spin on Contra, Hard Corps: Uprising, which is due sometime this winter. To make the wait easier, an all-new look at the downloadable shoot 'em up is here. Peruse!

Konami is giving its side-scrolling shoot 'em up classic Contra a makeover and it's doing so with Guilty Gear and BlazBlue makers Arc System Works, resulting in the downloadable game Hard Corps: Uprising.
