No Left-handed mode if they force slidepad & stylus controls

How many games had a left-handed mode on the normal DS? I swear, what is with you people.

Remember folks, it's not about how much you game over, but how much you DIE.

As did The World Ends With You. Well, it didn't have a new mode, per se, but it did let you use ABXY as the Control Pad.

Metriod
SM64:DS
Scribblenauts
Animal Crossing
Zelda Phantom Hourglass
Zelda Spirit Tracks

Probably many more, but those are the 6 of the 8 DS games I actually own.

So I'm going to say pretty much all of them.

Pretty much any game that used the D-pad and touch-screen at once had the option to swap the functions of ABXY and D-pad.

I think this is being a tad overcomplicated.

Most games that had a left handed mode did not actually rely on button presses. Wario Ware touched, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, Scribblenauts, Rhythm Heaven and more.

The only games that will need Slide Pad and intensive use of the touchscreen at the same time are in the FPS genre. Which will be needed only for camera control, which requires only simple dragging over the touchscreen, something either hand can easily do with a few minutes to get familiar with the controls.
