This was taken from a Konami catalog uploaded by an anonymous user from 4chan's Retro Gaming forum and I thought I would share it here.

It's an ad for Arc Hound, the unreleased FC counterpart to Contra Force. It has the same screenshots that were published in Famitsu's preview of the game, but this one also shows what seems to be the intended packaging illustration for the game.

I have to admit, I am not too familiar with Contra Force. Are there any visible differences to the released game in the previews?

Well the backgrounds in the side-view stages are very different from anything shown in the released version (for one thing, the forklift is more detailed in the prototype) and the player portraits on the HUD for Burns and Smith are more serious looking than the ones they had in the released version. Also, Smith is clearly using Beans' sprite in the one overhead screenshot.
