Konami reveals new games for Nintendo's upcoming handheld

Konami has revealed plans to launch four games for Nintendo's 3DS, which hits Japanese shelves in February 2011 and UK shores the following month.


While we already knew a Metal Gear Solid 3DS game was incoming, the publisher will also release a new Pro Evolution Soccer title for the handheld, as well as versions of classic side-scrolling shooter Contra and Frogger.

"We are delighted to confirm that Konami has four major titles in development for Nintendo's 3DS system," said Kunio Neo, president for Konami GmbH.

"The chance to explore popular franchises such as Metal Gear Solid, Pro Evolution Soccer, Contra and Frogger within a 3D realm is an exciting opportunity, and we cannot wait to share more news in the coming months."
