    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'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.)
