The Nintendo DSi was Nintendo's first answer to an upgraded version of the Nintendo DS. It added tons of new features, such as a Wii-like main menu, two cameras, a sound-recording app, a digital store, and all of the features you would find on a regular DS. Well, almost...

The console only lasted for a few years before being succeeded by the Nintendo 3DS.

Hidden Button Combinations

To do:
How do region-locked DSi-exclusive and enhanced games react to this combo?

Like the DS and 3DS, the DSi has a hidden button combination which is not documented in the DSi's instruction manual. There are two requirements which must be met in order for this combination to work:

  • The system must not be set up. If the device has already been set up, it must be formatted so it boots into the setup screen.
  • There must be a DS game inserted.

By holding A + B + X + Y + R while powering on, you can force a DS game to boot regardless of setting up the system. You will not be able to connect to a Wi-Fi network in this state. The system username, message, birthday, and alarm clock info will default as blank, and the system's favorite color will be set to color 15, the last option.

Debug Font

There's a leftover debug font titled debug/DebugFont.NCGR. However, there's no reference to the filename in the code. The uppercase is identical to the font used in the FDS version of The Legend of Zelda, with an added shadow.


Regional Differences

There's some minor language changes to each system menu. Notice how the US and Japanese versions have anti-aliased font, while the Korean and Chinese versions do not.
