Contra: Shattered Soldier blasts onto US PSN next week

Contra: Shattered Soldier, the last traditional Contra game for home consoles, will join the PS2 Classics range in North America next week.

The game is best remembered for putting the series back on track after the dire Contra: Legacy of War and C: The Contra Adventure.

Expect to cough up $US9.99 for this one.


PS2 Classics now available on Australian and European PlayStation Stores

A couple months ago we ran a story about PS2 Classics like God Hand being re-released for download on the US PlayStation Store. Well after a long wait, they’ve finally come to the SCEE run stores.

We’ve got a much larger initial line up of games too, though the quality greatly varies. Games are priced between $AU4.25 and $AU15.95. Here’s the list of what’s currently available:

  • A-Train 6 ($AU15.95)
  • Arcade Classics ($AU8.45)
  • Bust-A-Bloc ($AU8.45)
  • Cel Damage: Overdrive ($AU8.45)
  • Chicken Little ($AU15.95)
  • Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe ($AU15.95)
  • Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey ($AU15.95)
  • Donald Duck: Goin’ Quackers ($AU15.95)
  • God Hand ($AU15.95)
  • Golden Age of Racing ($AU8.45)
  • Gungrave Overdose ($AU8.45)
  • International Super Karts ($AU6.25)
  • Kim Possible: What’s the Switch ($AU15.95)
  • Maximo ($AU15.95)
  • Maximo vs. the Army of Zin ($AU15.95)
  • Meet the Robinsons ($AU15.95)
  • Mr Golf ($AU11.45)
  • MX World Tour ($AU8.45)
  • Neo Contra ($AU15.95)
  • Noble Racing ($AU8.45)
  • Road Trip Adventure ($AU8.45)
  • Seek and Destroy ($AU8.45)
  • Skyscraper ($AU4.25)
  • SSX On Tour ($AU15.95)
  • WWI: Aces of the Sky ($AU8.45)
  • WW2: Battle Over the Pacific ($AU8.45)

While it’s certainly a case of quantity over quality, I recommend God Hand, the two Maximo games and Neo Contra.
