    I was wondering why there aren't any wonderswan color emulators for DS nor GBA. I know it may not be the most well known system but it could still be emulated. Isnt it just a bandai version of the gba?

    No, it isn't just the Bandai version of the GBA, really.

    There are plenty of PC emulators for the system ... but, I think, the main reason no-one has made an emulator for the DS yet, is that a) not that well known, b) never released in the West, c) all the games are Japanese only.

    I'm pretty sure there was a Wonderswan emulator for the GBA, but I think it was still very early in its development. I'll look around.

    EDIT: Found it. Go to FluBBa's Website and scroll down a bit, named SwanAdvance. It's 0.1 and he says it is very slow, but he also says that it "works as far as playing Final Fantasy."

    Flubba's emulator was based on DualSwan a wonderswan emulator for the DS. It doesnt run full speed and doesnt have sound but it works for most games
