    New DS/GBA Linker: Smart Card 2

    Mini SD slot 2 cart







    Â​
    Remember the smash hit original Smart Card flash kit? No? Well you probably wouldn't because it wasn't very good. BUT it looks like the team have returned to bring us the Smart Card 2; a mini-SD slot 2 cart that doesn't really even try to hide the fact that it's a blatant Supercard clone.

    Here's a feature list, apologies for the extremely bad Google translation.

    For more photos, including photos of the GUI head inside this topic.

    Why does SuperCard keep selling their designs to every requesting company? [​IMG]

    I don't think that's the case.

    What we have here is piracy of devices used for piracy. [​IMG]

    Wow, I have always wanted an electronic schoolbag.
    Too bad it costs maximum. [​IMG]

    Looks damn much like a supercard wanabe yes, the card is the same with another sticker, the interface looks the same as a skin I've seen for that new supercard firmware... are there any reasons why anyone should ever consider buying this ripoff?

    By Smart Card, did you guys mean the Wise Card?

    I remember using one for my GBA a while back, total piece of crap.

    I am tired of linkers popping up from nowhere. First it was fun, when all the slot-1 devices started to pop out (dslink, dsx etc) but then there has been an exessive overload of crappy flashcarts.

    EDIT: What's that windows thing btw?

    Yes, I definitely agree with this. I'm having some serious trouble trying to keep up with all the clones, other company's licensed (or unlicensed) designs and similar named products. Seriously, who can keep all the Ninja products straight? I thought that they were all the same company, but apparently there are two... and the Ninja team that was working on the GameCube was entirely different?

    MoonShell with a skin ... Anyways, even if those are indeed SuperCard rip-offs, I'll buy one for my siblings if they'll be cheaper.

    Cost maximum? Does that mean it'll be really expensive?

    i don't think so... the only thing supporting that is a few barely legible forum posts. after all, the Ewin team already have their own Mini-SD based cart, why would they rip off the Supercard as well?
