Finally we will have an officially licensed iOS release of one of the most beloved games from the NES era.
Contra Evolution is scheduled to launch on the App Store this
Thursday, June 27th Wednesday, June 26th with separate iPhone(99¢) and iPad ($2.99) releases.
For those of you who were lucky enough to snag copies of these releases (for only 99¢ each) earlier this month, I have some great news. The new version is apparently being published as an update to the old versions using the same app IDs, so early purchases SHOULD automatically get the new, updated features for free, just download the update on Thursday.
However, on a sad note, I have it on good authority that unfortunately the Konami code is NOT in the new release of the game either.
Konami Code or not, I’m still really looking forward to getting my hands on this childhood favorite later this week!
