    Hi guys,

    Do you know if there is at least one NDS game that can be played in co-op mode over wifi or even internet ?
    Google didn't help, neither GBATemp search page, I guess there are only few... none?

    Thanx

    Children of Mana, although I assure you it might piss you off if you don't have the hammer.

    Contra 4 doesn't have Wi-Fi but it's a darn awesome coop game.

    Dungeon Explorer is kind of sloppy, to even be able to play multiplayer you have to beat the entire game first and even then it's only a bunch of dungeons (which are fun) but a true co-op action rpg would have you play the whole storyline with two (or more players) not a bunch of generic dungeons.

    Castlevania POR has online coop but mind you it's only the boss rush mode and you also need to complete the game to play all courses but it's actually a lot more fun than you'd expect.

    contra 4 does have great co-op (which i've only played once D:)

    but yes, children of mana's co-op is pretty sweet too.

    Touch of the dead
    and
    Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest

    Both have a co-op mode where you can play the entire game with 2 players.

    Pretty sure touch of the dead isn't Wifi. Would've been real fun tearing up some zombies with some friends.

    Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is coming out soon. I'm guessing that has pretty good co-op, not sure about wifi though.

    Cookie + Cream, Castlevania PoR, and Dungeon Explorer = only online co-op games unless I'm mistaken

    NY Times Crosswords has local co-op. [​IMG]
    TMNT 3 has some jacked up local co-op.

    NYT Crosswords - I enjoyed solving some puzzles with my sister actually.
    We tried TMNT 3's co-op but it was horrible.
    Others I thought of were mentioned already.

    It does have Wi-Fi, at least the Japanese version had so it's most likely the US version will have it as well. This is an excellent game.

    Check out Dungeon Explorer, Think of it as Diablo lite, and you can wifi co-op with upto 2 other people.

    I hate to say this but Dungeon Explorer is nothing but shovelware, seriously, look elsewhere before trying DE.

    Playing a half-decent adventure RPG like Eragon ALONE is way better than playing Dungeon Explorer with 2 other people right next to you.

    Just because you don't enjoy the type of game, doesn't mean it's shovelware. I think it's the best dungeon crawler on the DS right now, and I've played Izuna and CoM all the way through. And BTW, I really enjoyed Eragon for the short time it took me to play it, but DE is nothing like Eragon. One is a dungeon crawler, and one is an Action/Adventure RPG. If it's not your cup of tea, fine, but there's no reason to trash a game just because you didn't like it.

    I've played DE co-op quite a bit now, and I think it's very fun. You can co-op with friends or with anyone who's looking for a game. Not to mention it gives you access to the best items in the game, an you can beat the final final boss with help from a couple friends.

    Just the fact that DE has been able to successfully pull off wi-fi co-op is impressive to me. As you can see from this thread, it isn't easy to do.
