Konami is patching its arcade, Castlevania, and Contra collections today to add Japanese versions of most of the games. It’s also adding button remapping to Castlevania and Contra. Now you can play Castlevania III with the better music.

There’s a new Contra game! According to 4Gamer, it’s a side-scrolling-shooter for iOS and Android and aimed at the Chinese mobile market. No word on when this “newest” Contra, a collaboration between Konami and China’s Tencent, will be released.

"What if the classic arcade game Contra had been made into a live action movie back in the 1980s?" asked action-figure maker Mint Condition Customs. Interesting question, since Konami practically built the game with spare parts from 1980s action flicks. These custom figs are still outstanding. [via MTV Multiplayer]
