    I was wondering if its possible to play multiplayer GBA games on a NDS.

    For example I wanted to connect a few NDS to play the GBA game Zelda - the four swords.


    Thanks.

    Nope, only single-player is possible.

    couldn't you just hack a GBA rom and put it on a slot 1 with slot 2, use the built in passme and then make it work lke that?

    That wouldn't make the DS sprout a port for the GBA link cable. To use the DS's wireless hardware the game would have to be ported to the DS, as none of that hardware is available in GBA mode.

    Original GBAs can be had for $25 at your local GameStop. Considering the amount of time and effort that someone would need to create a method to use GBA multiplayer on the DS, $25 for each GBA is much cheaper.
