Contra ReBirth (魂斗羅ReBirth コントラリバース?, Kontora Ribaasu) is a 2D run and gun video game developed by M2 and published by Konami for the Wii's WiiWare service. It is the twelfth original installment in the Contra series. It was released in Japan on May 12, 2009, and will be released in Europe in August 2009.
The game features the characters of recurring Contra hero Bill Rizer and the humanoid alien samurai Genbei Yagyu from Neo Contra, and involves the two heroes fighting off the Neo Salamander Army led by Colonel Salamander.
Like Contra 4, Contra ReBirth features a return to the 16-bit style graphics in its gameplay, as well as remixes of music and tunes from the different games in the Contra series. The game also features two-player cooperative gameplay.
