Developers have often used the Nintendo DS as an opportunity to try new things. Some games took incredible advantage of the touchscreen like The World Ends With You, while others used both screens to create a unique experience. Nintendo wasn’t just developing these games either – huge names in the industry like Square Enix and Capcom also created amazing games for the console.

RELATED: The Best DS Games That Never Left Japan

The downside is that these unique games can be difficult to port to new hardware. While many have seen ports and re-releases, others seem stuck on the DS. With handheld games becoming increasingly rare over time, prices have skyrocketed and games that were released at standard retail now sometimes cost double or triple. These are the best third party DS games that are not available anywhere else.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

6 Okamiden

Set 9 months after the plot of the original game, Okamiden is a real treat for Okami fans. It takes what made Okami so fun, translates it into a touchscreen-based system, and even includes a heartfelt story. While the developers could have easily created a simple port of the original, they instead created one of the most fun third-party games available on the DS. While it’s not the only DS game that deserves a Switch remaster, it does top the list.


5 Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City

Much to the chagrin of fans of the series, Atlus hasn’t released an entry to the Etrian Odyssey series since Etrian Odyssey Nexus in 2019. Although they ended up remaking the first two games for the 3DS, the third game is the only one who was left behind. Etrian Odyssey III introduced many features that would become series staples, such as the introduction of subclasses and weapon forging. Also featuring the unique sea-crossing mechanic as well as dungeons, Etrian Odyssey III is definitely worth your time if you’ve enjoyed any of the other games in the series…if you can find it.


4 Pokémon Conquest

Developed by Koei Tecmo, Pokemon Conquest is a game that feels like it came out of nowhere but makes sense in hindsight. Picking up the beloved Pokemon series and teaming up with Koei Tecmo, creators of strategy RPG Nobunaga’s Ambition, this game is quite simply one of the best Pokemon spin-offs ever made.

RELATED: Ranking the Best Nintendo DS RPGs

While this game could easily have been a simple cash grab where the developers simply put a Pokemon skin on an entirely different game, they instead beautifully combined the monster collecting aspect of Pokemon with fun and challenging gameplay based on tactics. The result is a game that is criminally forgotten and deserves not just a port, but a full sequel.


3 Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes Of Light is forgotten among the proliferation of Final Fantasy games for the DS system, which is a shame. Not only did this game inspire Square Enix’s future hits Bravely Default and Octopath Traveler, it even incorporated a cooperative battle mode where up to four players could team up and battle monsters together. Even if you’ve never played this game, the inspiration it draws from old-school titles Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest is clear. Honestly, it feels like JRPG comfort food – incredibly familiar but still its own unique experience.

While other Final Fantasy games for DS sold better, the foundation of what would become some of Square Enix’s best games of recent years is on display here and this game is an absolute delight to play.

2 Digimon World Dawn/Dusk

While we wait for Digimon Survive, let’s look at another Digimon game from the DS era. Although not part of the Digimon World series, Digimon World Dawn and Digimon World Dusk were released at the same time, the same way Pokemon games were released.

RELATED: The Best Digimon Games Ever, Ranked

If you’ve played Cyber ​​Sleuth games, these titles will look incredibly familiar to you because they’re actually part of the Digimon Story series! Not only that, but these games feature the most Digimon of any console game, with over 400 Digimon to collect. With gorgeous sprite work that would be replaced with full 3D models in later entries, we’d love to have this game on a system like the Switch.


1 Spectrobes

Does anyone remember Spectrobes? Having two DS games and one Wii game, Spectrobes is a series that hasn’t overstayed its welcome. Drawing inspiration from both Pokemon and Digimon, Spectrobes is an interesting monster collecting and breeding game where you mine fossils and awaken them to fight alongside you against hostile aliens known as Krawl.

Although we complained about its use of the microphone to wake up Spectrobes, this game was a lot of fun. The latest game in the trilogy managed to condense the gameplay onto a single screen, so it clearly has the potential to be put on a different system. The last entry may have been released over a decade ago, but that doesn’t mean we’re not hoping for a surprise port announcement or a new entry in the series.

Despite women, like Roberta Williams who created the King’s Quest series, being an important part of video game history from the beginning, many games are primarily aimed at male gamers. For this reason, it was difficult to find games with prominent female characters, especially early in the industry.

But the Nintendo DS, which was the second best-selling game console according to by Nintendo sales figures, helped change history by introducing female characters and more nuanced protagonists to games. With excellent female characters such as Castlevania‘s Shanoa, the DS proved that women could also be the face of the industry.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Princess Peach – Super Princess Peach


The cover of Super Primcess Peach with a woman sitting on an island.

Although Princess Peach is one of the best-known female characters in video games, she is often a damsel in distress who must be rescued by Mario and Luigi. But the best-selling platform game of 2005 Super Princess Peach reversed this trope by having the player control Princess Peach as she tries to save Bowser’s plumber brothers on Vibe Island.

Princess Peach is a kind and empathetic character who would sacrifice anything to protect her kingdom and its people. She’s sweet, graceful, and well-mannered, but she’s also strong, stubborn, and resilient. Even if she is captured or has a difficult task ahead of her, she never gives up and never surrenders.


Makoto – Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2


A screenshot of Makoto Sako from the anime Devil Survivor 2

After the deity Polaris decides to wipe out humanity, the silent teenage protagonist and his party members must use a demon summoning app on their phones to recruit demons, prevent each other’s deaths, and save the world.

One of the possible party members the protagonist encounters on his journey is Makoto Sako, who is one of the main agents of the secret organization called JP’s. Although she initially appears cold and purely professional, she is extremely compassionate and willing to help the protagonist and her friends even when she does not know them. Despite her doubts, she is a strong leader and a powerful demon summoner.


Professor Juniper – Pokémon Black and White / Black 2 and White 2


Professor Aurea Juniper at the start of Pokémon Black and White

For the first four generations, all Pokémon professors were male characters, but Generation V introduced the first female professor: Professor Aurea Juniper.

Xion in Roxas' arms at the end of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Leading to the start of Kingdom Hearts 2, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days is an action JRPG released in 2009. The game follows Sora’s nobody Roxas, his new friend Axel, and mysterious new member Xion as they complete tasks for Organization XIII.

This week we’re taking a look at a handheld console that’s had quite an impressive run – the Nintendo DS.

With many iterations, styles and functions, the sturdy little Nintendo DS gave many gamers their first taste of handheld gaming in 2004. The Nintendo DS broke new ground not only with its dual-screen gameplay, but also popularizing touch controls . Players were able to pet digital dogs, try their hand at virtual cooking, and send scribbled messages via PictoChat – all thanks to the DS and accompanying stylus.

Nintendo changed it again in 2011 with the release of the Nintendo 3DS. Not content with just one or two styles of play, Nintendo has added 3D functionality to its already unique handheld, giving gamers a whole new perspective on gaming (literally!).

With a huge catalog of fantastic games to choose from, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite favorites.

Nintendo DS recreated via foldable phone and emulator https://r4isdhcx.com/nintendo-ds-recreated-via-foldable-phone-and-emulator/ Sun, 20 Mar 2022 04:06:00 +0000 https://r4isdhcx.com/nintendo-ds-recreated-via-foldable-phone-and-emulator/ Someone recently turned their foldable phone into a Nintendo DS through emulation.

Someone recently turned their foldable phone into a Nintendo DS through emulation. Nintendo fans have always been some of the most creative gamers. Not only do they find ways to show their passion for Nintendo and its IPs outside of games via cosplay and even real-life versions of Mario Kart, but they also manage to find ways to bring Nintendo games to other platforms. Games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have made their way to PC via emulation and it looks like a fan has found a clever way to replicate the Nintendo DS on another device.

Tech YouTuber Izzy Nobre realized that his Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 could be used to emulate a Nintendo DS, so he fired up a Pokemon game and it worked as expected. Using the foldable phone gave him a similar experience to the Nintendo DS, but Nobre noted that he thought the Nintendo handheld was the best way to play games like these. He also noted that the emulator he used is Drastic, which shows the actual exterior of a DS so he doesn’t just use the screen exclusively for gameplay. Even though the current Nintendo DS is the better option, it’s still great to see the same functionality a DS would have on a mobile phone.

Since the Nintendo DS isn’t exactly relevant anymore, it’s good to know that there are still ways to play its games on the go in a fun and somewhat effective way. The Z Fold3 is an extremely expensive phone, so it would be cheaper to just buy a Nintendo DS online and play it that way, but for those with the foldable phone, it’s a nice bonus. It looks like the Nintendo Switch will be the way of the future for Nintendo, so DS fans probably won’t see a successor any time soon.

Over the past two decades, Nintendo has developed and sold several unusual video game consoles that have changed the way people play games.

Additionally, the bottom screen was a touchscreen that gamers could use while playing many games. These unique design elements were a big factor in helping this handheld system become one of the best-selling consoles in history. Recently, a gamer decided to pay homage to the classic handheld by creating their own home version.

In a post on Reddit, a user known as MikeDubbz shared several images of a recent DIY project he did. However, this was no ordinary project as they revealed that they had created a working Nintendo DS out of random tech products. Specifically, they had used a Galaxy Z Flip Phone and a pair of Nintendo Joycons. Additionally, they created a 3D printed adapter to hold the assembly together. When combined, the results were impressive and led the creator to dub the DIY console the “Z Flip DS”.

Along with showing the build in some images, MikeDubbz provided some additional details on the custom console. According to the creator, they used the DraStic emulator to allow the Joycons to work with the smartphone. Additionally, they noted that this emulation allowed them to remap commands. Although they admitted that the system was complicated to operate, they claimed that it was closer to the authentic DS experience compared to PC emulation.

Ever since MikeDubbz posted this homemade Nintendo DS on Reddit, many in the gaming community have taken notice of the odd design. With over 2,500 upvotes in just a few days, many were impressed with the practicality of the DIY system. Among the comments, praise was given to the use of Joycons for controllers. Moreover, many were amazed by the ingenuity of the creator. “I’ve had an az flip for about 4 months now, and this idea hadn’t occurred to me until now,” Revolver_Ocelot66 posted on Reddit.

While this creation may be hard to top, it’s not the only fan-made video game console design on the internet. For example, another gamer previously decided to make a custom SNES Switch dock. As time goes on, it will be interesting to see if even more DIY consoles design a share with the community.

We all fondly remember the Nintendo DS, right? The big gray thing that had two screens and let you play Super Mario 64 in the palm of your hands from day one? The handheld that brought us hundreds of classics like Pokémon Black and White, Ghost Trick, Radiant Historia, and Animal Crossing: Wild World?

If you want to play one of these games again – and you no longer have your dual-screen darling – then a Reddit user might just have the answer for you.

A few days ago, DS enthusiast MikeDubbz shared his DS-like hybrid creation online. Using a 3D printer to create a grip for his Joy-Cons, then attaching them to a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to create that DS mini many of us dreamed of (No? Just us?).

The Joy-Cons easily pair with the phone via Bluetooth, and all you need to do is download an emulator to have the Switch commands mapped to the phone, as well as another to play DS games on it.

Of course, if you still have a DS – you’re lucky – then you probably have don’t need to go the extra mile. Still, it’s extremely fascinating to see the efforts fans are making to create alternative ways to play their favorite games or create their own versions of their favorite consoles.

So, is a 3DS with a fully functional 3D cursor next?

Here’s what happens when you pair your JoyCons with a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip!

Galaxy Z Flip is one of the first Samsung smartphones that allows users to fold their phone, and a talented fan decided to use this phenomenal feature to create a custom Android-based Nintendo DS!

So what he did to complete this simple yet creative project was to 3D print an adapter that holds the smartphone in the middle while having removable rails for JoyCons on both sides.

When you put the half-folded phone on the adapter, it almost looks like a Nintendo DS display with both JoyCon controllers connected to the phone via Bluetooth. And that’s all! You now have an Android-based Nintendo DS!

As a Reddit user”MikeDubbzmentioned, he uses the DraStic emulator on the Galaxy Z Flip to directly upload key mapping to Switch JoyCons the same way keys are mapped on a Switch or DS.

Unfortunately, we don’t have much information about the software side of this creative project and the exact method to run DS or Switch games on the phone, but you can probably find out more about it with a quick search on Google.
