    Well, that’s a pretty good easter egg

    Interesting how they used Golf instead of Balloon Fight (probably because Balloon Fight sells and Golf doesn’t).
    Can’t lose those sales….way to “honor” him Nintendo.

      Didn’t you read the original Golf was written by Iwata himself?
      You’re an idiot.

        Iwata also programmed Balloon Fight. OP’s argument was that they honored Iwata in a way that could not affect the sales of something Nintendo makes money off off.

        I saw people asking why didn’t they put “Super Mario bros 3 instead of that boring game” LMAO

    I just bought one yesterday, I didn’t see this until today though. Ohh well, guess I will have to wait for that day. 🙂

      I don’t think anyone with a firmware > 1.0 has gotten this to work by manually setting the date. If you bought it yesterday, it probably had 2.3 or 3.0 firmware.

    I still have mine boxed until next week’s opening. I guess I’ll give this a shot before I hook it up online. 😛
