Contra: Legacy of War Contra: Legacy of War is a video game that is part of the Contra series by Konami. It was released for the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1996. Legacy of War is the first of two Contra games developed by Appaloosa Interactive for Konami, followed by C: The Contra Adventure in 1998. The game marks the series' jump to three-dimensional graphics and controversial (and soon reverted) changes in gameplay. Legacy of War had the capabilities of supporting 3D anaglyph glasses. Legacy of War bears the distinction for being the first console game in the series to retain the Contra title and human characters during its release in the PAL region (where the series has been known as Probotector from the first NES game and up until Contra: Hard Corps). The game appeared on Konami's release schedule in Japan, but was cancelled. [source:wikipedia]
