Some of you were keen on Hard Corps: Uprising upon first hearing about it recently, others ... not so much. This is why, I presume, Arc System Works and Konami decided to shy away from slapping the Contra name on what is by all accounts a game very much Contra-like in nature.
Above is our first look at it in motion, courtesy of 1UP. Yes, the style is not necessarily what you'd expect from a spiritual successor to the funky, totally masculine Genesis game Contra: Hard Corps. Is change really that bad? I don't think so; not here, anyway. Uprising is its own thing, so why not be this distinctive?
Love it or hate it, this footage probably won't have you changing your stance.
