List differences between Japanese and non-Japanese versions, research what "HIRATA's" used to do in the Debug Menu.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories takes place in Ancient Egypt. You play the Prince of the dynasty, who has to reclaim his throne after High Priest Heishin and his right-hand man, Seto, overthrew the Pharaoh. This game is well-known for being one of the hardest in the license, just after Reshef of Destruction.

AI Duel

Unnamed option (1st column 3rd row)

Starts a Duel, entirely controlled by the AI, using Simon Muran's deck for both duelists, with the Title Screen music.

Since the AI always go second in this game, it never has to check whether or not it is the first turn of the duel. As a result, the AI can make a direct attack on the first turn in this mode. You don't get any reward regardless of which AI wins (it displays 000 as a card drop, but the game doesn't even attempt to add it to your card pool).
