Konami says Contra could return to 2D, but it would have to innovate

2D Contra could happen again

Contra: Rogue Corps is heading to Switch in just a matter of days, and it's another entry in the franchise to bring the game into 3D. Does that mean going forward, all installments are going to take the 3D route? That's not necessarily the case, says executive producer Nobuya Nakazato. Here's what he had to say about the potential for new 2D installments in an interview with DualShockers.

“Yeah, I love the old 2D games as well and I’d love to make new ones, but just modernizing the graphics, upgrading the graphics, and creating something new in them would not be the right way to do it, in my opinion. I’d have to come up with a new innovation and maybe change a bit of the genre and then I can start working on one of those.”

Konami explains why it took so long for the Contra franchise to return

The stars aligned

Its been quite some time since we've seen the Contra franchise, but that's all set to change with Contra: Rogue Corps. That title is set to launch this week, but why on earth did it take so long for the series to return? NintendoEverything asked director Nobuya Nakazato for an explanation, which you can find below.

“It was very hard to kick off the project just because we needed to find the right kind of momentum and timing. Obviously I really wanted to make another Contra game. I’ve been really pushing – I just couldn’t find the right push, and couldn’t get approval for such a project to do it out of the blue.

Also, one of the difficult things is finding the right team to work on such a game, and even just the staff and resources we have at the time, but what really pushed forward with the project was… one of the things that was very memorable to me was working on Contra games, and I know the series well, and so I figured who else would be worthy to create the next Contra game? And that’s why I wanted to contribute all of my talent and history on the series and make it come to life.”

Original stars of the Mortal Kombat movie get together to reminisce about the movie, and play Mortal Kombat

It's Johnny Vs. Liu Kang!

Robin Shou and Linden Ashby, stars of the 1995 hit 'Mortal Kombat', stop by Heat Vision Breakdown to challenge host Patrick Shanley (and each other) to a friendly match!

The original Mortal Kombat movie may not have been perfect, but it certainly had its moments. I still consider it one of the better video game to movie adaptations ever, even if that's not saying much. It's great seeing two of the main actors from the film get together for a bit of fun, and look back on the days of filming that movie.
