Nintendo DS

Debunked: What the secret DS wireless option is



This video surfaced with a supposedly “secret” option for to connect the DS with Simple Start technology. The only way to unlock this option is be to poke the wireless menu in an invisible button hidden in the top left hand corner of the wireless menu. Why would Nintendo hide this option? Is it related to Wii connectivity? Sorry, but the answer isn’t that exciting. The option is actually a translated version of the Raku Raku Musen Start set up. Japanese DS games have four options instead of three like in North American games. The option in between the AOSS and Manual Setup is the Raku Raku Musen Start set up. If you have a NEC router you can press the Raku Raku Musen Start set up button to automatically configure your DS. Since NEC routers aren’t sold in North America Nintendo must have dummied the option out. Also when you click on the Raku Raku Musen button a similar screen shows up with a green cubes at the bottom right hand corner. Plus there is no secret option found in a couple of DS games like Star Fox Command, Bleach DS, or Final Fantasy III. And if that isn’t convincing enough Raku Raku Musen Start translates to Easy Wireless Start. Props to the person who discovered the hidden option, how he/she found it is more likely an interesting story than the truth about the simple start technology.
