Ehh, I'll just keep my old system. I'll need to keep it anyway because of the GBA player.

No no no.

Now, I want to use the search function to look for something I need to know! Take care.

If you mean will it play DS games then yes it will.


Go to Features and then scroll down to input/output:

"A port that accepts both Nintendo 3DS game cards and game cards for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems, an SD memory card slot, an AC adapter connector, a charging cradle terminal and a stereo headphone output jack."

Nintendo has always had BC within each handheld that they bring out.

The GBC was backwards compatible with all regular GB games.
The GBA was backwards compatible with all regular GB games and all GBC games.
The DS was backwards compatible with all GBA games.

I don't see why they would skip backwards compatibility with all DS games within this newer handheld.

Yes it will be backwards compatible. Not to mention it is already confirmed, but it would be extremely foolish to not make it so.

Nintendo has only recently launched the DSi and hasn't even gotten to the point of making DSi exclusive games that work with the camera. Nintendo pointed out that the 3DS would be compatible with those games as to not go back on its previous statements.
