Konami's classic shoot 'em up may be about to blast it's way onto the Wii U and/or the 3DS eShop in the West, if a recent rating by the OFLC is anything to go by. Contra III: The Alien Wars, or Super Probotector: Alien Rebels as it's known in PAL regions, was rated on 11th September, indicating that further Virtual Console releases may be on the horizon.
Contra III was re-released on the Wii Virtual Console back in 2007, while its predecessor Super C has also been released worldwide on the 3DS platform. It would seem Nintendo (it's listed as publisher in the rating) is offering the chance to download the shooter once again. Does a potential Wii U or 3DS release interest you?
