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. Setting up multiplayer mode for this re-release can be confusing. The gamepad must be set to player 2 and player 1 must use any of the other compatible controllers. Strangely, 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 save state is created.

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