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. 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. Like the 3DS port, PAL regions received Super C instead of Probotector II for this re-release. 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 Super Contra is a digitally downloaded product.

CHEATS, ASSISTANCE

Cheats

NOTE: For peripheral controllers, use the appropriate changes to the following codes.

Extra Lives: At the main menu, press RIGHT, LEFT, DOWN, UP, 2, 1, +.

For extra lives in 2 Player mode, use the same code above, but either press – before + 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 +, then immediately hold -.
