Playing a retail version

Open the game card slot and insert the game card. Pay careful attention to the direction the game card is facing when you insert it.

Make sure that the label on the game card is facing you, then insert it into the game card slot until you hear a click.


The software icon for the inserted game card will appear on the HOME Menu. Select the icon with your cursor, then press the A Button to start the software.
