The series that started out as an arcade release from Konami way back in 1987 is still going, and 2019 brings the next entry. This time for Switch, Contra: Rogue Corps looks to lend from some of Contra 3's level design, swapping a side-scrolling angle for a top-down perspective.

The run-and-gun action game is set to bring back some classic characters alongside some questionable new ones, like a "cuddly panda" named Hungry Beast and a weird mutated-bug-thing called (Just) Gentleman.

The trailer looked like typical b-movie action, with a boatload of running, gunning and exploding to a rockin' soundtrack. We'll see how this one turns out when Contra: Rogue Corps launches on September 24, 2019.
