Konami Code is a sequence of buttons that players would press to unlock a cheat or an easter egg in Konami titles. Some of the most famous titles with Konami Code are Gradius series, Contra series, Metal Gear Series, Dance Dance Revolution, Castlevania series, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series. The famous Konami Code is as follows: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. Our thoughts and prayers go to Kazuhisa Hashimoto’s family and friends.
