We previously showed you how to play Game Boy Advance games on iPhone 6, and today we will be briefly discussing how you can play Nintendo DS games on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by using a website called vShare. Check out our how-to tutorial after the jump.
Note: As you can tell from the comments section, NDS4iOS can no longer be downloaded from the vShare store. There’s an alternative in the form of Retroarch, so check that out!
With its huge 4.7″ display, the iPhone 6 and especially the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus are excellent contenders for playing Nintendo DS games on the go. How is it possible to do so, you ask? Well, you use ’emulator’ software that gives game ROMs the illusion that they are actually running on a Nintendo DS when they are actually just running on special software running on top of some other host operating system, in this case iOS.
How To Play Nintendo DS Games On iPhone 6
- Go to Settings > General > Date & Time and turn off ‘Set Automatically’
- Now change the time to September 1st, 2014.
- Launch Safari
- Go to vshare.com, and install the vShare store.
- Once vShare is downloaded, launch it up and search for ‘NDS4iOS’.
- Download NDS4iOS
With NDS4iOS downloaded, you obviously now need to download Nintendo DS ROMs from somewhere, and put them on your phone. Since people who run emulators most likely do not own a Nintendo DS and the original game cartridges, downloading ROMs is considered illegal so we will not discuss how to directly procure them. However, we will say this: Google it. Once you have downloaded a few DS ROMs to your PC, you can transfer them to your iPhone by emailing them to yourself, uploading them to a file-sharing app like Dropbox or OneDrive, and then after pressing the ‘Share button’, you can use ‘Open In…’ option to open the ROM in NDS4iOS. When you open the ROM in NDS4iOS, it is permanently stored there so you can play anytime you want.
