My Arcade Reveals ‘Contra’ Collectibles

My Arcade Reveals ‘Contra’ Collectibles

Bill Rizer and Lance Bean get the collectibles treatment following a new deal between My Arcade and Konami Cross Media NY.

My Arcade and Konami Cross Media NY have partnered to create a new line of collectible players for classic platform shooter video game “Contra.”

Available in two options, a compact desktop Micro Player and handheld Pocket Players, the new products are slated to launch later this year during the holidays. Collectibles are inspired by “Contra” characters Bill Rizer and Lance Bean.

The “Contra” video game is a side-scrolling action shooter with a focus on cooperative play. Debuting in 1987, the game was one of the first video game shooters for two players to cooperatively play together.

My Arcade’s deal is the latest one for Konami Cross Media NY, which manages IP for gaming brands including “Yu-Gi-Oh! Bomberman,” “Contra” and “Frogger.”
