To execute arbitrary code to access data on GBA Flashcarts a PassMe was needed. The problem was that they were too big and stuck out like SuperPass. Soon there would be newer firmware for the Nintendo DS that wouldn’t allow PassMe´s to work.
Later PassMe 2 was created that could be programmed to work with the newer firmware but many people didn’t know how to set it up.

PassMe and PassMe 2 soon evolved into NoPass´s such as SuperKey and PassCard. They are exactly the same structure as a normal DS card and allow you to execute code from all the Flashcarts in slot-2.

Exactly like SuperKey, PassCard works on any Nintendo DS without any trouble of trying to program it.


As the Package of PassCard is really small, just like a 8 cm Mini CD, along side the box is the PassCard itself. The Box is very simple with red and black graphics.

Build Quality

PassCard is exactly the same size as a normal DS Cart, and the build quality is almost the same.


Plug and Play... Easy as hell, you just need to insert it on Slot-1 and Power On, and you are ready to go !
Worked like a charm with every flashcart i used, in particular, SuperCard, and M3.


The only problem with it, is the extra battery consumption and boot screen whenever you turn on your Nintendo DS. The battery consumption is fairly minor though so i think we can say it's perfect and it works flawlessly.

+ Almost the same Quality, and is the same size as a DS Cart
+ Fully compatible with any DS model
+ Works with all the main Flashcards available
+ No update or programming needed
+ Sleepmode and native DS function compatible

- Minimum extra battery consumption
- Boot screen image can’t be disabled

Overall Score


DS-Scene would like to thank KickTrading for sending us a sample of PassCard for reviewing porpouses, and we expect to have more stuff from them to review.

Yeah it's been really nice of them to let us have these cards and I would like to thank Kicktrading aswell. It's good to finally have the missing link filled and hopefully this and many new friendships can be gained as time continues!
