    In the comments, the creator of Inchworm Animation (a great game x3) says there is hardware to record DS.

    Isn't it a fact?
    Why in the world would they use emulators?

    Why would they even use an emulator? (Not that I thought that before editing this post)

    Idk I always thought they used some form of an emulator (maybe not even using a ROM file) to record.

    Maybe like a Nintendo-created-Nintendo-only DS emulator type thing

    It doesn't make any sense to have such an emulator. The chance of leaking would be too big.

    there was an emulator developed by nintendo, but it could only run prototype flagged games. i dont think they used that to record though, only development

    There's also a specific capture device for the 3DS.

    They're recording videos with a mobile cam.

    Game companies have a ton of shit that's cooler than emulators that doesn't get leaked, such as encryption keys...

    I thought this was common knowledge?
    Sure some releases are filmed with SDK tools, but there is a slot-2 device for the DS that is used to film/take screenshots.
    There was a commercially available clone of it, but it is no longer available due to a copyright claim from Nintendo.

    Also +1 what Rydian said, it's more practical in every way to use NitroSDK's tools (even though one of them is an NDS slot-1 adapter designed for pretty much that purpose.)
