iNES Mapper 115 is used for an MMC3-clone-bearing board with a 256 KiB outer CHR-ROM bank register and an NROM-like PRG-ROM register that can override the MMC3 clone's PRG-ROM bank. Used by games from 卡聖 (Kǎshèng):

  • A.V. 究極麻將 II (A.V. Jiūjí Májiàng II, Kǎshèng re-release, originally released by 哥德 (Gouder) on INES Mapper 116)
  • 包青天 (Bāo Qīngtiān, Justice Pao)
  • 雷電 II - Thunderbolt Fighting Plane (Léidiàn II)
  • 三國春秋: 四川省 (Sānguó Chūnqiū: Sìchuān Shěng)
  • 幽☆遊☆白書 Final (Yū Yū Hakusho Final, both Chinese and English versions)

  • Unlike many similar mappers, the $600x registers are not connected to the MMC3 clone's WRAM interface and thus function regardless of whether WRAM is enabled or not.
  • IRQ behavior resembles that of the MMC3C, i.e. a latch value of zero causes an IRQ on every scanline, on which the Chinese version of 幽☆遊☆白書 Final (Yuu Yuu Hakusho Final) depends.

Similar Mappers

  • INES Mapper 114 has the same $6000 and $6001 registers, but additionally scrambles MMC3 register addresses and indices. Also, Mapper 114's IRQ behavior resembles that of the MMC3A, i.e. a latch value of zero disables IRQ.
  • INES Mapper 248 is a duplicate of Mapper 115.
