Woot diggity ^^

Glad they are going back to side scrollers cuz this game was never meant for 3D.

As a PSP owner this is the first game title that really hurts seeing as a PSP version of this game would be light years better than a DS version.

I'll have to hope they're going to be releasing a PSP built Contra game as well, similiar to the Castlevania game coming out. Otherwise I'll get the DS version for my wife's DS.

Why would a PSP version be "light years" better than a DS version? The PSP's 2D graphics capabilities are not "light years" better than the DS's, and it lacks an additional screen.

I like the fact that this new Contra will have a grappling hook. Bionic Commando anyone?

Bionic Commando! ^^ Now that's a game that needs to be dug up
