OVERVIEW

Like the Virtual Console re-release of NES Super Contra for the Wii, this is an emulation, making use of the game’s ROM on an internal emulator. 2-player mode, however, is achieved using the Download Play feature. As a result, the multiplayer experience is much more limiting. Tapping the 3DS’ lower screen opens the Virtual Console menu. In this menu, the player can reset the game, start Download Play (for multiplayer) or create a single Restore Point, which functions as a save-state.

Strangely, PAL regions received Super C instead of Probotector II for this re-release.

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

CHEATS, ASSISTANCE

Cheats

The control configuration for Virtual Console games on the Nintendo 3DS is unusual. SELECT is mapped to Y and B is mapped to X (in addition to B). Use the following legend when inputting the following codes.

D-Pad – D-pad
A – A
B – B or X
Select – Y
Start – Start

Extra Lives: At the main menu, press RIGHT, LEFT, DOWN, UP, A, B, START.

For extra lives in 2 Player mode, use the same code above, but either press Y before START or highlight 2 Player mode before entering the code. Extra lives are provided at the start of the game, as well as when continuing after a Game Over.

The number of extra lives provided depends on the regional version of the game. In the Japanese version, the code provides 30 lives; in the North American/PAL version, it provides only 10 lives.

Level Select Menu: NOTE: This code works only on the Japanese version of Super Contra.
At the main menu, hold DOWN and press START, then immediately hold Y.

Sound Test Menu: At the main menu, hold A & B and press START.
