Contra Turns 20

And in celebration, here is a sweet video I found on YouTube that shows the differences between the USA, JAP, and PAL versions of the game. Continuing the long tradition of America getting shitty ports of great Japanese games, the JAP version of Contra contains a special chip that adds and intro and better backgrounds to the game. In America, game makers could only use the stock NES chips so, again, we got a shittier version than the Japanese got. Boo.
