Advance Wars: Days of Ruin
W2 -- Advance Wars DS 2

Aliens: Infestation
EY -- Ellen Ripley (The main character of the Alien franchise)

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
GD -- No idea what this is.

Big Brain Academy
YA -- No idea what this is.

Brain Age

Brain Age 2
NM -- No idea what this is.

Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater

Metroid Prime Pinball

Nintendo has always done this with the serial numbers for their games, even back in the NES - SNES era.

That would explain why Final Fantasy 3 is "FF" and Final Fantasy 4 is "F4".
