  1. Portable c64 and apple II for the win!

    Posted by E. H. on 4th Apr 2022

    Bought this to play my DS games and then found out about the emulators that are available for the r4 3ds dual core. I have been loving my old Apple II games and C64 games on the 3ds. A perfect portable computer game player. Highly recommend for the emulators alone.

  2. Fast receiving to Greece. Thanks for a good service.

    Posted by Zaces on 8th May 2020

    Sorry, my English is not perfect. Thank you to all you here for the good service and I love my flashcart. It works just like you say. I will tell my friend and family to also purchase only from you because you don't cheat the customer. I buy before form another shop and they took the money and did not sent the package.

  3. Fantastic cartridge

    Posted by Juan F on 30th Apr 2020

    I can honestly say this is the best add on I have ever bought for my 3DS. Not only does it work without a hitch for whatever I want to play, it also has a bunch of emulators so that I can play even my Gameboy and Gameboy Color games right on my 3DS. And let me tell you, playing those games on the 3DS screen is amazing. So much clarity and the games look crispy clear.

  4. Questions

    Posted by Garrett on 5th Sep 2019

    Will this card work with a 32 GB micro SD card that is SDHC?

    -- Yes it will work with 32GB

    Do I have to format the micro SD card using a special program? If so, what, and how should I format it?

    -- You can format it just in Windows or Mac, as long as you format it to FAT32 file system.

    Will this card keep saves? I had issues with an r43DS Gold Pro SDHC card from NewEgg that kept losing the save from Dragon Quest IX, it would delete the in-game save when I opened other games or soft-reset, and I want to be sure that doesn't happen with this card because it made it impossible to play.

    -- Yes the card keeps saves without issues. It keeps them on the micro SD card which means you can also back them up and have them on your computer as well.

    Does this card come with an SD card reader?

    -- Yes and SD card reader is included with each card.

  5. Happy with the product

  6. Works great with NES and Gameboy games

    Posted by Jim R. on 4th Jun 2019

    My dual core card arrived and it works great with all my NES and Gameboy games. I bought this card to be able to play some classic games on my 3DS because I grew up with so many great retro games. So far each NES and Gameboy game I have tried works just great.

    Posted by Kraig on 29th Sep 2016

    This product is wonderful and it works just the way I wished it would. Picked up 2, one for me and one for my wife. We have a couple of old R4's for our original NDS Lites and were able to copy all of our favorite DS and retro titles, with saves directly to the new cards game folder!!! Works like a charm and can hold an enormous library! Thanks again for retro goodness, SO GOOD ON XL SCREEN!!!!! CHEERS!
