    Welcome true believers,

    I wanted to ask if someone knew about the upcoming games for DS, i'm more into RPG's and that stuff.

    Are the developers going to release more games for the DS? i mean... the DS isn't dead yet, and i don't believe that the 3DS is a big deal...

    PD : bring back the GBA PLEASE

    The DS has been dead for two years. Pokemon being announced for 3DS was the final nail in the coffin.

    The only upcoming games for DS are shovelware titles.

    You can read gamefaqs release lists as well as the rest of us I figure, to save a search
    I am not seeing anything of note to come.
    Actual releases to add to that list... maybe some absolute shovelware and film cash in titles depending upon what goes but I would say the DS is dead, I would possibly agree the 3ds faces serious competition and will most likely not eclipse the DS or GBA (debate rages as to what did better and I see no clear winner there) but not enough to dismiss it. Whether we get any "homebrew" releases of shelved games like we go on the GBA (I mentioned a bit about it in ) is a different matter- on the one hand why not and on the other hand there is 3dsware and the 3ds does not have too radically different hardware from what I have seen so far to kick a quick port in the head and there is also the allure of an idevice/android port (which also tend to not be too radically different).

    More conventional homebrew will most likely continue to trickle out though so some nice things might happen there.
    Similarly the DS ROM hacking scene is only getting more active and more adventurous mainly as the devices are reasonably powerful yet simple, the 8/16 bit era devices are largely exhausted unless you are translating to something other than English and the code is reasonably clean.

    As I have probably said in similar threads in times past if you have exhausted all commercial releases, all homebrew releases, all things that can be emulated well and all ROM hacks for the GBA and DS you either have very specific tastes or are doing far better than the rest of us.

    The 3DS has less competition than the DS did.
    Unless you're counting Android devices. The Vita doesn't really compete with the 3DS.

    Making a professional game is a long process. Some of the games that are still coming out are ones that started like a year ago and are just finishing up now.

    The DS may be dead but I still play it practically everyday..well my 3ds i mean, but I mostly play ds games on it. I'm not sure how many others still actively play the ds but I'm sure people here do. Hell, there's games on the gameboy and gamboy color and I've still been meaning to get to.

    There maybe something some day. I mean some people still put out the occasional Genesis or Dreamcast release. Not officially licensed, mind you.

    Finding that out myself.
    DS is dead.
    I can remember there was an article on IGN about it.
