Wing Commander Arena and Super Contra to Hit Xbox Live Arcade this Week
This Wednesday, prepare for fast-paced space combat with EA’s “Wing Commander Arena” and do battle with Red Falcon in Konami’s “Super Contra” on Xbox LIVE Arcade


The fight for freedom continues! Reprise your role as either Bill Rizer or Lance Bean in this follow-up to the arcade classic “Contra,” which made waves in arcades everywhere in 1987. The nefarious forces of Red Falcon have been wounded but they are far from defeated! The alien menace has taken control of a military installation in South America and they must be defeated for the sake of humanity. Experience the authentic gameplay of “Super Contra” with an updated look and feel by battling through several risky missions either solo or in two player co-op mode, just like in the original.


  • Two gameplay modes: single player or two player co-op, either locally on the same Xbox 360 or over Xbox LIVE.
  • Players can choose to play with either the original graphics or the enhanced graphics.
  • Compete for the weekly and all time high scores on the Leaderboards.
  • Earn up to 12 Achievements and 200 Gamerscore.
