    May I direct your attention to this and this thread? Just, uhh, check the SNES list. Not all games on there will be playable on the DS. You're all set with NES though [​IMG]

    Darn, beaten to it...

    Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! doesn't work on nesDS. It does work on HVCA and PocketNES, but those are both GBA programs so you can't run them from a slot 1 flashcart.

    Mike Tyson's Punch-out!! was playable on NESDS for me, just the HUD and crowd were badly messed up.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    It was ... but, you'll soon realize, that if an RPG is not Japanese, all the Wapanese who haunt most gaming sites now, will dismiss it.
