Nintendo DS Dual Screen launch | Techday, November 21st
On this TECHDAY in history, on November 21st 2004, the seventh-generation Nintendo DS portable game console went on sale – first in the US and then a few days later in Japan. Although the initials DS stand for Developers System, they were retained on the final product as they also describe its special feature: the Dual Screen. The Nintendo DS family was enhanced every year or so with a new product, as is Nintendo’s traditional practice. Among the new models were the Lite and XL, which were basically the existing versions in smaller and larger sizes respectively. The series proved to be one of the most commercially successful in the history of gaming consoles.
The Nintendo DS had backwards compatibility with Game Boy Advance games, which gave players access to a large library of titles from the previous generation. Additionally, the console supported wireless connectivity, which allowed players to connect and play with others locally or online.
Overall, the Nintendo DS was a revolutionary device, that changed the way we play games. Many consider it one of the most important handheld game consoles in the history of gaming.
