Wow, can not wait. I remember playing this pretty much all day when I was 12

Aid is like a pill that numbs the pain, if you take it too often you get addicted. President Isaias Afwerki

Correct. And there is an iap for $1 (6 yuan) that states Small EXP Pack. Published by Punchbox Studios, developed by Beijing Chukong Aipu Technology Co, Ltd, and copyrighted under Konami. Punchbox does have titles in the US store so there is a ray of hope.

Edit: Supported languages are Chinese and English.

Just reading off the Chinese iTunes, not sure what else is in there but the word 'small' makes me feel there is more. It wouldn't be hard for me to set up a chinese itunes account cause my wife is chinese. If it doesn't come out this week or so I may go for it.

Oh, and download file size is 45 mb. I think that about covers it. Hurry up and wait now.

Is there any reason why this wouldn't hit the US App Store?

Punchbox Studio has very many games in the Chinese market and yet only five in the US store. It may not have an interest in foreign markets. But then again a lot of Konami's games are, but not all. The only thing that confuses me is why did Konami allow them to release it instead of releasing it themselves. My "conspiracy theory" senses are tingling.

What if its not "great" not as bad as the metal slug clone but not as good as the actual contra for nes and snes? I know its by konami but still does seem fishy
