I saw a post on Reddit claiming that someone recently developed a fork of the Nintendo DS emulator DeSmuME that can render games in higher than native resolutions. As I've never seen a DS emulator do this before I thought I'd test it out and take some screenshots. They don't scale up quite as nicely as PSP games or more recent consoles (as expected) but some games don't look half bad.


Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies



Elite Beat Agents



Golden Sun: Dark Dawn



Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days



The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks



Metroid Prime Hunters



Ōkamiden



Pokémon Black Version 2

The graphics for KH 358 is the reason why I haven't played it yet. This up-res looks pretty good actually I may finally give the game a shot.

Golden Sun looks awful, lol. The rest aren't too bad. Metroid Prime, Kingdom Hearts, and Dragon Quest actually look pretty good blown up.

The character models in Kingdom Hearts and Samus's arm cannon look surprisingly good.
Given the textures in these games, I'm not surprised at all at how bad everything else looks. That's more like what I was expecting.

Golden Sun text hard to read and hurts my eyes as does everything else in the pic of course. Metroid Prime looks pretty decent though. Wonder how the pinball one would look. That was pretty good looking game I think.
