Contra: Evolution, a reimagined take on the 1988 NES original, is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. As before, players must battle their way through the jungles of South America against suspiciously familiar aliens and their henchman in a bid to save the planet. Now, however, there are two more characters to choose from, bringing the roster up to four, and each has their own skill set. The announcement also noted that the North American version of Evolution was optimized and polished by original developer CocoaChina along with assistance from Konami.

A new trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain premiered at E3 earlier today. The next installment in the long-running franchise will be available for 360, PS3, PS4, and Xbox One, but the footage is from a next-gen version. The nine-minute-plus video posted is the red-band director’s cut, which includes additional material and graphical content. The trailer gives a glimpse at what Kojima Productions has in store for fans of the series: an open world, real-time weather, large environments, realistic passage of time, and horses. Some very brave horses. Ten new screens have also been posted.

The PC version will be a download-only release, and Konami has noted that it should run at 60 frames per second “on most modern PCs.”
