A flurry of videos have been hitting the tubes of the internet along with updated information about gameplay aspects. Contra Rebirth will be released on WiiWare this year.
New Details include:
- hand-drawn cut-scenes
– English voices
– no waterfall or snowfield music
– Weapons: Normal, Laser, Homing and Spread
– Settings available: Volume for BGM & SFX, Diff. Easy-Normal-Hard (Nightmare is unlockable), Lives 3-5-7, etc.
– Infinite Continues.
– Controls: 1 is shoot, 2 is jump. Hold the shoot button to stand still and shoot in all 8 directions, A or B button for weapon switching

I just love how companies are treating the 2D fanbase very well lately. With Mega Man 9, MVC2 and a new Contra game, here’s hope this trend continues.
