Is the Nintendo DS compatible with foreign Nintendo DS hard- and software?

Applies to: Nintendo DS


As the Nintendo DS is not dependent on a TV type, the European Nintendo DS hard- and software is compatible with foreign Nintendo DS hard- and software. Please be aware that chargers are voltage dependant and may vary from country to country.

We would like to point out that Nintendo of Europe and all distributing companies (around the world) are independent companies. Therefore we cannot accept any warranties for products not originating from within the European Union.

To play a so-called Multi-Card game, the same country version needs to be inserted in every Nintendo DS. Otherwise it could lead to failures within the game or loss of saved data or similar.
