Earlier this year, Konami teamed up with Netflix to release an animated adaptation of Castlevania to relatively positive critical reception. Now it’s been confirmed that another one of the company’s IPs will be getting a similar treatment: Contra, which originally released for the NES in 1987.

This time around, though, it’ll be a live action film and TV series, produced by Starlight Film. Japan’s WeFmedia and Hanwin Film of China will also be involved.

We first heard of the project back in May with the below teaser trailer, but Konami has officially confirmed via Press Release earlier today that production is underway.
 

 
We’re sure to hear more on the Contra movie and TV series in the months to come.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
