Konami Sheds More Light on A Shadow's Tale

New trailer for the platformer previously known as Tower of Shadow

It's not often that platform games manifest themselves in a unique hue that illuminates them from their surroundings, and this upcoming Wii title from Hudson Soft could well be the latest example of a game that does. In more ways than one, mind. Since it was announced last August, we still don't know too much about it. Other than..

It's been a long time since a new Contra game was released in Europe - Although an awesome game, Contra 4 on DS never made the jump to European stores.

Tomenasanner

Rock rock planet rock, don't stop. Rock rock planet rock - DON'T STOP!

What Tomenasanner means is anyone's guess (try guessing in the comments - better still, please advise if you know!).

More mental game stylings as only the Japanese can deliver them!

It's not really apparent why Japanese game developers have such a penchant for wacky game ideas that provide a draw for many curious Westerners: it could be a reaction to growing up in a culture of overwork and is an explosive expression of repressed id.
