Contra 4 (Known as Contra: Dual Spirits in Japanese) is released for the Nintendo DS and is the direct sequel to Contra III: The Alien Wars.

Story Edit

Two years after the Alien Wars, Earth is at peace again. However, the Black Viper returns after being defeated previously. She caused mass destruction over the planet. Strange readings are detected in the Galuga Archipelago. The Contra Force sends Bill Rizer, Lance Bean, Mad Dog, and Scorpion to investigate the readings. They found the readings that came from the Black Viper's main base. The 4 Contras battle the Black Viper's army, which consists of aliens, robots, and mutants. Later they find out that the Black Viper's parasite was none other than Jagger Froid inside her body. But the Contras managed to destroy the brain of Jagger Froid which could possibly be the brain of Black Viper and save humanity once again.
