    My 7 year old cousin came and he doesn't speak English. I'm trying to find a game that will entertain him and that he can play/understand with or without me explaining little.

    Thanks.

    Electroplankton would possibly be entertaining. Music has no barriers, and Electroplankton is a Zen toy that requires pretty much no explaining.

    What language DOES he speak? Many European DS games have multilanguage support. If he speaks German, Italian, Spanish, or French, he's in luck.

    (I'm assuming it's not Japanese, because, well, that's obvious.)

    There's also Korean versions of a few games. Unfortunately, while there's Chinese versions, they generally won't run on a non-Chinese DS because we lack the special expanded character set support.

    SIR, I must agree with the person 2 above. Any 7 year old better speak at least ONE language, or that's neglect on the side of the parent.

    So what language DOES he speak, if he's european get multi language euro roms.
