McDonald's eCrew Development Program is a game used by Japanese McDonald's to train their employees.


In 2010, McDonald's Japan collaborated with Nintendo to create eCrew Development Program, a Nintendo DS game to train new employees. The game received some media coverage, but it was only given to McDonald's Japan employees and required a password to play.

In December 2018, a thread was started on the AssemblerGames website by user Code1038, who had bought the game cartridge years earlier. Code1038 was stuck on a password entry page and could not progress past that point.

In mid-2020, a Yahoo Japan auction for the game appeared online. Its starting price was 400,000 yen (about $3,855 in US dollars), which was later lowered.

On November 18th, 2020, YouTuber Nick Robinson shared a video (below) where he revealed that he won the auction. He dumped the entire game onto the Internet Archive.
