The Nintendo DS (ニンテンドーDS) is a handheld console manufactured by Nintendo, released in 2004. The letters "DS" stand for "Dual Screen" or, officially, "Developers System". It features a clam shell-design and has two LCD-screens, one of which is touch-sensitive. It also has a built-in microphone and supports WiFi, for linking, or for access to Nintendo WiFi Connection.
The Nintendo DS Lite, a re-design of its predecessor, has a slimmer, brighter and lighter design, which shares similarities with the Nintendo Wii and is more appealing towards broader commercial audiences. This system was released in 2006.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, a remake of the first game in the series, has been released on this system, currently being the first and the only Fire Emblem game to be produced for the system outside of Japan. A second Fire Emblem title for this system, a remake of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem Book 2, has been released in Japan only.
