Konami has submitted a trademark application for Contra Run and Gun
. Noticed by NeoGAF user Rösti
, the USPTO
application points to some new Contra game, but we've yet to hear anything out of Konami at this year's E3
about a new installment in the run and gun franchise.
A new Contra was teased back at E3 in 2011
, then again last year with the potential of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
studio MercurySteam attached to the project
. However, there's nothing indicating that this recent trademark – which could be a mobile Canabalt
-type game for all we know – is the same as the previously teased project.
