Retrospective: Best Gifts for the Nintendo DS in 2007

zeldaphantomhourglassBack in 2007, the Nintendo DS was selling like mad. So there was no surprise to see plenty of Christmas gifts that were released in that year. Let’s take a look back at the best 2007 products for the Nintendo DS.


Nintendo DS Lite

If your loved ones still has the old, clunky version for the Nintendo DS than it was time for them to switch to the Nintendo DS Lite in 2007. The Lite version is more compact and features a brighter screen than the original Nintendo DS. In addition, the Nintendo DS Lite’s battery life is longer. Not to mention that the Lite has plenty of different bundles and colors to choose from.


Action Replay DS

The Action Replay DS will give you plenty of cheats and other hacks for Nintendo DS games. It comes preloaded with a bunch of cheat codes that will enhance and extend your gaming experiences that you won’t normally get. Additionally, you can get codes from the newest games by connecting Action Replay DS to a PC.

Nintendo DS Headset

Although the Nintendo DS comes with a built-in microphone, having to lean in close to the handheld to use it seems quite awkward. The Nintendo DS Headset alleviates the awkwardness. Moreover, the headset can be use to chat with other people online in games like Pokemon Diamond and Pearl along with Metroid Prime Hunters.

A.L.S. Nintendo DS 3 Pack Game Card Case

While the Nintendo DS cartridges are small, the cases are too big to carry in your pockets. The A.L.S. Nintendo DS 3 Pack Game Card Case can carry up to three games at a very compact size (roughly 1.5 inches wide and 4 inches long). Furthermore, it also helps protect the cartridges from water and other hazardous materials.


The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

The Zelda series generally loses nothing from its transition from console to handheld gaming and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is no different. Exclusively using Nintendo DS touch screen, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is about as good as a portable game can get.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations

The third game in the cult hit series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations continues the story of Defense Attorney Phoenix Wright and his wacky trials. Although it plays more like an interactive novel than a real game, the Phoenix Wright series is something every Nintendo DS owner should experience.

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl

It wouldn’t be a Nintendo handheld system without Pokemon games. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are the latest entries in Nintendo’s powerhouse franchise. Featuring new Pokemons, new locations and online battles (which was a first for the series), Pokemon Diamond and Pearl will have your loved ones glued to the Nintendo DS screen for a very long time.
