[Pre-register] Garena, the digital entertainment platform under Sea Group, has announced the start of the Southeast Asia pre-registration phase for Contra: Return, the highly anticipated mobile game based on the classic “Contra” franchise. It is co-developed by both Tencent’s Timi Studios and Konami. The SEA server will be officially released to players from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. Players who pre-register now will receive diamonds, gold and other bonus in-game items during launch. Contra: Return is different from previous installments in various aspects. Though the key iconic characters and gameplay remain true to the classic 3D side-scroll experience, tech-fictional elements and modern game modes, as well as updated graphics offer a fresh game experience for new players. There are new gameplay mechanics, characters, weapons and pets introduced in Contra: Return. RPG elements are also added in the form of new stories as well as advanced upgrading features. Regular game content updates are also promised! The most anticipated mode for Contra will be the Player VS Player (PvP). Contra: Return has introduced a new multiplayer feature to enable players to challenge their friends online in a 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3 as well as ranking setting. In PvP, players can choose from over 20 playable characters, with each character possessing their own unique active, passive and ultimate abilities. Players can also collect EXP and other bonuses with monster and item spawns in the arena, allowing for different strategies and play styles in each battle.
