Posted on November 22, 2012, CJ Miozzi Wii U Users Accidentally Access Debug Mode
Wii U users have reportedly accidentally found the console’s debug menu just a day after it launched in North America.
NeoGAF poster “Trike” was trying to set up his Miiverse friends list after purchasing a Wii U and came across what appears to be the console’s debug menu. Screenshots posted by the user show how he was able to access a list of admins, with options to regenerate admin passwords and delete admin accounts, as well as view messages from developers.
Another NeoGAF poster reported a similar occurrence, posting photos showing a test screen that appeared when he tried to sync his Wii U GamePad with the system.
