It turns out there is a (previously undocumented) way to erase save data in Pac-Man and Galaga Dimensions
on the 3DS, despite reports to the contrary
last week. It's a bit more complicated than simply diving into the options menu. Upon start-up, players can input the command "ABXYLR," which will wipe the save data from the cartridge.
"There has been a miscommunication at our level," a Namco Bandai representative told Eurogamer
today. "Thanks for your understanding." The rep then shouted "Aye bee ex why el arrr" and vanished in a cloud of smoke.
