Video Game Plays Strange Message

Jessica Hayes, WTHI-TV (Terre Haute), January 26, 2009

Months ago, Rachel Jones was shocked to discover her 4-year-old’s baby doll seemed to have a hidden message: Islam is the light.

Imagine her surprise when a game for her 8-year-old daughter’s Nintendo DS had the same message.

Rachel said she bought the Nintendo game, Baby Pals, as a gift for her 8-year-old daughter after a good report card.

She had no idea the game also contained the hidden message “Islam is the light.”

The message on the doll and in the Nintendo game sound exactly the same.

In a virtual reality setting, the child playing the game can feed the baby or teach it to crawl, among other things. It’s only when the child gives the baby a bath that it repeatedly seems to say “Islam is the light.”

Nintendo’s representatives said the game is manufactured by a third party, so they’re not responsible for the content, but the game’s packaging clearly states the game is licensed by Nintendo.
