The [[Nintendo]] DS version of ScummVM allows most of the games supported by other versions of ScummVM to run on the Nintendo DS handheld console.  As the software is not official or supported by Nintendo, a 'homebrew' device must be used to load ScummVM.  Some of the more popular devices are the R4DS and the M3 DS Real.

== Installation ==
To run ScummVM on your DS you will need an unofficial card reader. Once you have one working you just have to download the ScummVM package for Nintendo DS on the [http://www.scummvm.org/downloads/#stable download page], unzip it, and copy the files on your MicroSD card using your PC card reader.
To decrease the memory usage ScummVM for Nintendo DS has been split into several builds. Depending on the game you want to play you will have to select the correct build. Even so, some of the games cannot be run on a Nintendo DS because they require too much memory. You can find the list of supported games and which build you need to use for each one in the readme_ds.txt file present in the ScummVM Nintendo DS package. This information is also available on the [[Nintendo DS]] page.
You can find more informations on how to get ScummVM to work on a Nintendo DS on http://scummvm.drunkencoders.com/ which is the official website for the ScummVM Nintendo DS port.
