    [​IMG] Supercard DSTWO announced
    GBAtemp Exclusive
    [​IMG]
    The Supercard team have today confirmed directly to GBAtemp.net that the development of the successor to the Supercard DSONE is now officially under way.

    THE SUPERCARD DSTWO IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDERS ON SHOPTEMP.COM

    Their newest cart, unsurprisingly named the Supercard DSTWO, will be a mash up between the original DSONE and the hardware that was found in the iPlayer multimedia player. It will of course be DSi compatible, but will most likely not have 'i' in the title, but that is subject to change. That means you're going to have a cart on your hands that can play both Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance games without any additional hardware. There will also be a SNES emulator, but we have not yet had the chance to see this in action.

    Alongside the built in emulators, the DSTWO will also boast a revamped real-time feature system, multi language options, slow motion and a file management system.

    Here's the official feature list for the Supercard DSTWO:
    Stay tuned to GBAtemp for further updates, including pictures and videos in the next couple of days and weeks.

    Finally I wanted to buy a Supercard one when I was choosing my flashcart a year ago but a lot of things told me me not to and I choose a Cyclo but now that they don't have a dsi cart looks like Cyclo isn't getting my 50 bucks again although I'll need to see the menu first but I wonder If it will be able to play dsi only games since they have the time to put it in.

    Reason for edit: Spelling mistakes I really need to start reading what I write.

    This will be good if they make the menu quicker.

    Also will it work on the DSi?

    Yes it's DSi compatible, but they might not include 'i' in the name... Subject to change though.

    The Cart will probably have its own menu of its own. This news also sucks for the people who have the Supercard DSone because I don't think they will update it now.

    I have been waiting to see if any makers would integrate the iPlayer hardware into their flashcarts. The only thing I am wondering abut is whether battery life is going to be horrible.

    Wow. If the interface is good, this could quite possibly be the best DSi flashcart.

    I've always wanted to get a Supercard even since the gba days. I just never get around to it. If my acekard dies on me this will definitely be my next choice.

    I wonder if there will be a SDK available to take advantage of the extra processing power of the Supercard DSTWO or not.

    Nice! I was thinking about getting an AceKard 2 and an iPlayer card but will probably buy this instead.

    Will the GBA emulator function work on a DSLite or does it require the extra RAM the DSi has.

    What a stupid question. Of course it will run on the DS Lite. This flashcart doesn't use DSimOde only DS mode.

    It will work on any DS as the GBA emulator runs using the Flashcarts CPU and hardware rather than the DS's.

    No offense, but coming from you, it was a very smart question.

    Oi you. Chill out. I'd question that as well. It's a geniune question, albeit a late and reduntant one. In a nicer tone, yes it will work on the DS Lite, DS Brick, and the DSi.
