Konami Code in Contra IV

If any of you out there purchased Contra IV for the DS, and you certainly should if you haven't yet, then you may have been wondering if the Konami Code works for this new version of the series. The Konami Code was first made famous by the original Contra back in the NES days and has now become the most popular and widely known cheat code in the gaming industry. Just ask around, there are plenty of people who know the code and would not be classified as gamers.

With Contra IV being as difficult as it is it could be handy for some of you out there to play the game with 30 lives rather than the default five. So in order to be a good Gaming Trainer I thought it would be a good idea to figure out when to use the code and make sure you get the best gaming tips. This will help make you the best gamer you can be. After all, that's one of the perks of visiting the Game Gym.

In the original Contra you had to insert the code before the title screen opened and the "press start" message appeared. Well try as you may, and some of you may have, but that code won't work there in Contra IV. Instead, try entering the code after you have started a game and it has been paused. If you have forgetten the Konami Code then here it is:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start

I would recommend not trying this though until you get fairly far along in the game. Hey, what are good trainers for huh? To make you better. Ennnnjoyyyyyyyy...

I tried this right when I unlocked the original Contra and like you said it didn't work. I thought, "what a bummer, Konami didn't leave in my fondest memory of Contra".

I'm so glad to hear you have a way to get it to work though. Now if only they had this code for the arcade mode on Normal.

Have you tried the code on Normal difficulty yet on Arcade Mode?

If you haven't you should give it a try. Good stuff.
