Back in June last year, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate developer MercurySteam revealed it would love to work on a Contra game for Konami, should the opportunity arise.

It seems that desire is still burning brightly, as Konami's David Cox, who works very closely with MercurySteam, revealed in a recent GamesTM interview (translated by Google):

I'm a big fan of Contra. After Castlevania, Contra is my second great love. The thing about Contra is that since Contra III was not a mainstream game more - but the rest are absolute core gamer title. I think it cries out for a reboot! If we are to have the opportunity or not, I can not say. But Contra would be cool.

Contra 4 was released on the DS and was developed by WayForward Technologies. Could Konami be lining up a new iteration with MercurySteam and David Cox at the helm?

Would you like to see another Contra game? If so, which console would you like to see it on? Let us know in the comments below.
