The portable Nintendo systems, Nintendo
DS, DS Lite, and DSi, are connectible with the Nintendo Wii system,
much like the compatibility between Nintendo's Gameboy Advance and
Gamecube video game systems.
Connecting the Nintendo DS, DS
Lite, or DSi to the Nintendo Wii allows owners of these systems to use
them to their maximum potential, as they take advantage of the Nintendo
Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows you to use the systems simultaneously
with certain Nintendo DS games.
To connect the Nintendo DS, DS Lite or DSi to the Nintendo Wii, the Wii needs to be connected to the Internet
wirelessly either through a router or by the Wii LAN adapter. These
Nintendo systems share a Wi-Fi connection, and this allows the portable
Nintendo systems to connect instantly to the Wii via the wireless signal
shared by the Wii and the Internet.
Once you have your portable
Nintendo system and Nintendo Wii connected, the DS will act as a
controller and allow you to play the DS game through the Wii system
while maintaining the touchscreen and microphone capabilities of the
portable system. Another function of the connection is that the Wii is
able to expand the portable Nintendo system's games.
There are only a handful of
portable Nintendo games that allow you to connect to the Wii, including
the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games, which allow players to use
Pokemon accumulated via these DS titles to battle with in the Wii's
Pokemon Battle Revolution game.
Nintendo has commented that
there are plans of being able to download and play game demos to the
portable Nintendo systems through the Wii's Nintendo Channel.
Hi friend the only games you can play without a disk are the ones on the virtual
console. There is the Wii Shop Channel. You can get:
new games at the Wii Ware part or old nintendo games at the main part of the channel. Some systems can save the game to its hard drive and launch it
from there. The wii only has 256MB unless you put an SD card in the
No it does not. You can't play European games either for that matter, only Japanese games. However there is a way around it, though it's a bit complicated and you'll need Zelda Twilight Princess (japanese version in your case) and an SD card.
Information can be found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack#Download (used to install the Wii Homebrew Channel) and used in combination with this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Help (Wii hombrew channel install files) and finally this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/GeckoOS (homebrew application allowing you to play games from other regions)
If you need any help I'll walk you through it. This isn't endorsed by Nintendo whatsoever. No warranty on this at all. I have done it myself and there have been no adverse effects.
