Debug Leftovers

Game Pause

During the game, press B on Controller 2.

Location Select

During the game hold A + B on Controller 1, then by pressing A on Controller 2 you can cycle through 16 predefined places of the game.

Invulnerability, All Items, Fast Walk

In the Japanese version, hold A + B on Controller 1, then power off and on again the console (this doesn't work if you just reset the console).

Now, during the game, press Start to enter the status screen. On Controller 2, press A to enable the super fast movement or any D-Pad button to enable invulnerability, add all items, equipment and refill 255 MP. Do note that enabling invincibility during the last dungeon will make enemies invincible instead.

In the US version this feature is disabled, but you still can re-enable it using the Game Genie code XTKLVYAV.
