- On this Day November 13, 2007 – Contra 4 was released for the Nintendo DS in North America. However, this also released in Japan on March 13, 2008.
Publisher: Konami Digital Entertainment
Genre: Run and gun
Description: The plot is set in 2636, six months after the events of Contra III: The Alien Wars and two years before the events of Contra: Rogue Corps. With the Red Falcon alien threat defeated and the Alien Wars over, the Earth is peaceful once again. However, a similar alien entity calling herself Black Viper begins launching similar attacks against the human race, causing mass destruction over the planet. After strange readings are detected at the Galuga archipelago (the setting of the original Contra), the Earth Federation sends their four strongest Contra Force commandos on a final strike mission to destroy Black Viper and her army of aliens, robots, and mutants. Contra 4 is based on the same 2D gameplay system featured in the series through Contra III: The Alien Wars, ignoring many of the game mechanics introduced in later games such as the fixed weapon configurations in Contra: Shattered Soldier and Neo Contra, returning to the old method of picking up power-up icons to obtain new weapons.

Other abilities include interacting with objects and switches, using a grappling hook to latch onto special rings for both puzzle solving and environmental traversal, and swim and dive underwater for a limited time. Different button combinations can create more moves such as a roll and swan dive. British archaeologist-adventurer Lara Croft is approached by mercenary Larson, who is employed by wealthy businesswoman Jacqueline Natla. Natla hires Lara to find the Scion of Atlantis, an ancient artefact originally sought by Lara’s father Richard Croft. It is buried in the tomb of Atlantean ruler Qualopec within the lost city of Vilcabamba. Making her way through Vilcabamba to Qualopec’s tomb, Lara discovers that there are three pieces of the Scion, divided between Atlantis’ Triumvirate. Escaping the tomb, she is confronted by Larson, sent by Natla to take Lara’s piece of the Scion. After beating him in a fight, he reveals that Natla has sent her rival Pierre Dupont to retrieve the next piece. Breaking into Natla’s offices, Lara discovers a video showing the next Scion piece’s resting place in Greece beneath a building called St Frances’ Folly.
