It’s the CONTRA you always knew…

  • Fight aliens bent on human annihilation
  • Earn power-ups that make you nearly invincible
  • Blast through everything in your path
  • Discover hidden caches of shields, bombs, and weapons

And a CONTRA that’s all new!

  • One- or two-player simultaneous action in 3D texture-mapped environment gives you control over the battlefield – charge in or launch a flank attack
  • Choose your hero: an alien, a female super-warrior, a para-military steel robot or a grizzled veteran
  • Special 3D format (used with enclosed 3D glasses) adds a whole new depth to gameplay“Contra…comes to life in this true-to-its-roots first 32-Bit version.” – Game Fan Magazine




The big double jewel case has a single-ring hub release. It IS different from the single jewel case release, and it’s fairly easy to find. It’s the damn glasses that will drive you mad snagging a complete one. The packaging looks just like the 2-rng variant, the vibrance is due to two different flatbed scanners years apart.

The single-jewel case variant of Contra: Legacy of War removes the 3D glasses – it turns out Konami ran out of them. The manual, insert and disc are all different from their double jewel case version, so it’s easy to tell if you have the real deal. The single case manual has no mention of the 3D glasses, the insert will have the whole title across it (the DJC has the title and sub-title split between the inserts) and the disc is more of an olive camo color.

It also includes an Addendum insert explaining how Konami themselves are out of the 3D glasses and the Justifier.

Note that it’s not clear if the single-case version was ever released without this note, so I have removed that version for now.
