The Nintendo DS (sometimes abbreviated to DS or NDS) is a dual-screen handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It was released in 2004 in Canada, the United States, and Japan. The console features a clamshell design, similar to the Game Boy Advance SP, with two LCD screens inside—with the bottom one being a touchscreen. The Nintendo DS also features a built-in microphone and supports wireless, allowing players to interact with each other within short range or online with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. This was the first Nintendo console to be released in North America prior to Japan. There are four versions of the Nintendo DS. These are Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, and Nintendo DSi XL. The original Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite can play Game Boy Advance games. The two latter versions can access downloadable content.
