OVERVIEW

Like the Virtual Console re-release of Contra III for the Wii, this is an emulation, making use of the game’s ROM on an internal emulator. Because simultaneous multiplayer is not supported for the Virtual Console titles on the New Nintendo 3DS, the 2 player modes in this port are unusable. There is a feature to swap between controlling player 1 and 2, but this is essentially useless for this game.

Like the Wii U port, the North American version of Contra III has been provided as the re-release for the PAL region. Unlike the Wii Virtual Console, players can create a (single) save-state that can be restored as many times as desired, until a new one is created.

Covers: N/A; this version of Contra III is a digitally downloaded product.
