Xbox Live Listens to M.O.P., Asks "How About Some 'Hard Corps'?"

Xbox Live Listens to M.O.P., Asks "How About Some 'Hard Corps'?"

Ever since "up, up, down, down, right, left, right, left, B, A, Start," Contra has rung bells from the hood to the 'burbs. The classic franchise's latest entry, Hard Corps: Uprising—the first to not bear the Contra name—will be released as part of Xbox Live's five-week Arcade House Party promotion (we're still trying to figure out why this is a big deal). Brand new screens and an official release date for the highly anticipated DLC were released today. It's slightly updated, but the cap-peeling shoot-'em-up fun looks as ill as ever. Especially if we can count on that spread gun making an appearance. Hard Corps: Uprising will be available for download on February 16, 2011 for 1200 Microsoft Points.
