    I was searching for some good DS games today and I came across this: Shantae: Risky's Revenge.
    As one of my all time favorite games, this might very well be the reason I get a DSi. I'd rather not buy a whole new console until the 3DS as I'd have to get a new flashcart as well (I use a CycloDS).



    So my question is this: Is it at all possible to get a DSi Ware game and port it over into NDS format or a format playable by a DSL? I Need this and any help at all would be appreciated.

    Nope, there isn't even a way to do this illegally for DSi, shit you can't even do it legally if you own a DSi and you want to move them to DSiXL.

    So, absolutely no way to get the code for the game?

    I care not about legality.

    DSiWare runs in DSi Mode i believe, so a DSL couldn't run them if you did get it on your DSL somehow.

    I doubt you need it. Unless someone has threatened to cut off your thumbs.

    Still, not possible, and no idea if it will be.

    You have no idea how much I need this.


    Btw, thanks for the help, I may just buy a DSi and get a new flashcart anyway.
