    Not my type of games so I can't be sure. My fiance loved the game - Ninja Gaiden. Have you tried that?

    That's all Summon Night does from start to finish.

    Same can be said for FF Crystal Chronicles.

    Try the English patched Soma Bringer. You only control one character but it's a great hack n slash still.

    Children of Mana is a hack 'n slash that you just go and fight herds of monsters over and over... and over... and over... and over. I liked it though, making enemies bounce off walls was fun in short bursts.

    Ninja Gaiden and FF:CC RoF are good (however, I don't really like FF personally).

    I got sick of FF though because of the ridiculously slow magic system, the retarded allies and the horrible, childish story. Honestly, can't a FF game have hack n slash gameplay and have a more mature story.

    Get Ninja Gaiden, it is incredible. I rank it as second on my top 5 DS games. Incredible speed, it never slows down (FF does sometimes), because it uses pre-rendered backgrounds.

    Rune Factory has hack n slash dungeon play, and amount of weapons is pretty deep. It is mainly a farm sim though, so don't expect a deep combat system.

    Go play Dynasty Warriors or something. The DS version isn't that great, though. I put it down within the first mission.

    It's not a question of real time FF and mature content, it's a question of Nintendo and mature content. It's clearly their business model to dump the kid games on Nintendo systems and keep the mainstream for Sony.

    Maybe it's some kind of retribution for all those years they were locked into producing games for Nintendo systems but always being censored. Now they'll deliver nothing but games involving six years old protagonists.

    Dungeon Explorer
    Orcs and Elves.
    And if you're up for it, roguelikes such as Izuna and Shiren

    Edit: They're mostly one character, but Shiren and Dungeon Explorer do allow you to recruit help. Also, you can do local multiplayer on Dungeon Explorer.
