Video is not available anymore. Maybe a fake, or maybe devs have put it for wrong on the web. However, it could be an interesting iOS port. Let's see what happens.

Well, that's old news. It was announced in Nov. 2012, that Contra by Konami is coming to iOS in Jan. 2013.
Check out Google:

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Video works fine for me.

The game looks good, i did buy a few of these Contra 'conversions' previously and they were quite terrible.

From the video this looks okay but i'll still be cautious as it cant be legit...

Edit - Just saw that URL

Blimey it is real !! Very surprised, never thought we would see this. Roll on tomorrow then !

Ok, thanks.
The video is really interesting. NZ guys have some news about it?
If it's really an official port ( as it seems), iCade support is mandatory! On iPhone the thumb covers the screen too much.

Hm. You think so? I'd guessed it might come on 01/24.

edit: Ok, end of video, just saw it. But it says 01/22/2012, so I guess it will be out in NZ at noon tomorrow.

This.

Holy hot burritos, I never thought I'd actually see an official port of Contra on iOS. Miracles do happen.
