For whatever it’s worth, DuoS is still worth checking out for enthusiasts, if only as a case study for what might have been. Do note that MelonDS requires BIOS and firmware dumps from an actual DS because the developers do not offer alternate BIOS/ firmware.

It didn’t quite pack the power of a Super Nintendo into a pocket-sized device… but it most certainly did a good job of upping Nintendo’s portable game.
