Web browsers often obfuscate their true identity, the person on Wikipedia was simply reporting what the HTML request header contained, and I can well imagine that this is a misguided attempt by Nintendo to disguise their custom version of Opera as other popular browsers.
Although, on this computer Opera calls itself 'Opera'... as you might expect

The reason why that was added was because over some braindead patent litigation over controls that automatically 'activate' (seriously, what is the world coming too?) the holder of that patent made a promise not to extract licensing fees from open source rendering engines, which of course Opera is not. Thus, that's why both IE and opera have 'click to activate'.
Opera, of course, isn't some hybrid monster of Mozilla and IE, the only way to explain that is if Nintendo were trying to fool websites into thinking it's something else.
