A new Contra game is on its way to the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade with a brand new look. Titled Hard Corps: Uprising, the next-gen follow-up to Contra: Hard Corps for the Sega Genesis, was described by Konami as a “homage to the legacy of Konami run-and-gun platformers” in a hands-on preview on IGN.

Hard Corps: Uprising is currently slated for a winter 2010 release. It's being developed by Arc System Works, the folks behind BlazBlue and the Guilty Gear games, which may explain the fresh anime art style.
