Contra: Run and Gun has been trademarked by Konami, which should come as a nice surprise to fans of bullets, death and pain.
The above trademark was unearthed by NeoGAF user Rosti, and it was filed on June 4 by Konami.
If this is for a new game, it'll be the first Contra title since Hard Corps: Uprising, which was generally quite badass.
The trademark follows rumours that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow team Mercury Steam was involved in a Contra reboot last year.
Would you like to see the series return? Could Mercury Steam reboot the series successfully? Let us know below.
