Topic: Lag while playing DS games on the 3DS

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


Question: Some DS games like Scibblenauts & Super Scribblenauts have some lag when a lot of things are on the screen at once. Will the 3DS 's higher processing power fix that, or is that a problem with the game itself?

I asked this question on the 3DS FAQ but nobody answered, and I'm very curious about this.

I seriously suspect the 3DS won't fix it. It makes sense for Nintendo to ensure the hardware runs exactly the same in emulation mode as it would be likely to cause more problems than it would fix if they didn't.

I'm pretty sure DiggerDan nailed it.
