Action Replay DS

The Action Replay DS is a Game Enhancer device for the Nintendo DS. It was created by Datel. It is a cheat code based device and allows the user to control the menu by using the DS's touchscreen. The code list can be updated by downloading updates from the official Datel website, and from there using software and downloading it to the AR DS through a USB cable. The AR plugs into the DS game port, thus assuring compatibility with all models of the DS. Rather than having a pass-through port, the AR must first be inserted, then after booting, the game of choice is inserted.

Trainer Kit

The Action Replay Trainer Kit is a peripheral sold seperately which allows users to find their own codes. It plugs into the GBA cartridge slot so it only works on the original DS models.
