    I just redeemed WarioWare Touched and would like to dump it for... "archival reasons"

    Any way I could dump the .cia or at least .nds from it? Thanks!

    Use godmode9 to find the .app file under emunand twln/title/00030004/<title id>/content/
    and copy it to the sd card.

    Then
    make_cia --srl=game.app
    and your done.

    I really don't know but just getting the .app file is good enough for 'archival' reasons.

    btw, if you don't know what the title id is then whichever .app file is > 16MB will be wario.

    Is there a way to take that .cia and run it on an emulator?

    A DS emulator.

    Up until recently there was no way to emulate DSiWare because there was no way to dump them. Now there is a way to dump them but I don't see any emulators that support 3ds cia dsiware.

    But the game itself is literally the same as the DS version.

    lol, it's dsiware and won't run on desmume. In fact, it whitescreens on no$gba dsi mode as well. (jpn version)

    The only one with a bigger-than-16MB file has 2 .apps, one is 27MB and one is 40KB.

    Got it done!

    Something interesting I noticed - I renamed the .app to .nds and opened it in Tinke and found a bunch of files identical to the original DS ROM. Someone look into it!
