Are you a bad enough dude to
A pre-release US version of the Wii Menu exists in the leaked Nintendo internal data posted on 17th October 2020. This version of the Wii menu was built on Sep 24, 2006; about two weeks before the final version. Due to it being only two weeks older than the final build, it is considered a Release Candidate (RC) build.

Health and Safety Screen
In the 1.0 Release Candidate, there is a timestamp present on the health and safety screen. The timestamp is read from a text file in a debug folder not present in the final. The text file reads:
Sun Sep 24 21:03:15 2006
The default selection sound of the release candidate is quite different compared to the final version.
- Empty channel slots can be highlighted.
- The 'Start' Button on the Disc Channel isn't greyed out when no disc is inserted. Pressing it plays an error sound instead.
The settings menu is mostly localized, but translated version is not loaded, defaulting to Japanese.
A few settings such as the connection test display a debug output not seen in the final.
A few bugs also exist, such as a crash when entering the Wii Save Data menu in Data Management.
