Nintendo DS emulators to play on Android

The best free emulators to use Nintendo DS games on Android

In the environment of emulators, the key is that they offer support for a wide range of games and good performance. But there are other important aspects such as personalization the controls, the interface or the access to the cheat menu. For the reasons that we tell you about each of them, these are the best NDS emulators for Android that you will find in the Google Play Store. And they are free.

How to make games work better

Nintendo DS emulators perform well in all cases. However, if we want to achieve the best results, and the best gaming experience, it is advisable to use files not compressed. That is, although the emulator can load ROMs in .zip, .rar or .7z among others, as is the case in most, we will always achieve better performance if we run ROMs in uncompressed .nds format.

DraStic DS Emulator

The only thing missing in this emulator, which little doubt is the best that exists at the moment, is multiplayer. But we can not only use nintendo ds games on Android, but also improves its resolution without any performance problem on devices with quad-core CPUs. The compatibility with ROMs of this console is complete and we have perfectly adapted touch controls on the screen.

This second option is somewhat simpler in the interface, and is focused on the game with the mobile in vertical orientation. But the ROM support is also complete and with exceptional performance. As in DraStic, we can use an external controller connected by cable or Bluetooth to make it more comfortable and take better advantage of the screen. It is compatible with different game formats, including compressed files in .zip, and we can customize the touch screen controls for a better gaming experience.

The N.DS Pocket of Simulator

Whether from Nintendo DS, or from another platform, emulators do not usually give us access to the ROM download. And that is one of the peculiarities of this emulator, which not only has exceptional performance but also allows us to load locally stored games and also easily obtain them from the application itself. The only problem, in this sense, is that the repository available from the app itself will give us the games in English, there is no option to find them in Spanish.

Therefore, we can save other applications in the memory of our smartphone and, from there, run games from various platforms by adapting the interface in aspects such as, for example, the touch controls that are displayed on the screen.
