Following the footsteps of Gradius ReBirth, Konami quietly announced Contra ReBirth on a product page (thanks for the tips Ishaan and Denpa no Sekai!!). The WiiWare game goes on sale in Japan on May 12 for 1,000 Wii Points and has two player co-op play.
Konami says the game is a new work, but it isn’t clear if Contra ReBirth is a remix like Gradius ReBirth. Seems like Konami is growing a series of a ReBirth arcade games. I wonder what’s next… Yie Ar Kung-Fu ReBirth? Twinbee ReBirth?
