40 DS games that can be played in Spanish

pdRydia
The list author says: "This is a list of DS games that can be played in Spanish. This includes domestic North American games only--that is to say, no imported games (from Europe or Japan, for example) are included. I've compiled this list for my own use as a student of Spanish, and I'm sharing it with others who may find it useful or interesting.

Because I can only put 40 games on this list and because I wanted to show as wide a variety of genres as possible, I tried to avoid listing both a game and its sequel. I've commented on each game, and for some of them, I note whether or not sequels or predecessors play in Spanish. I've also made comments about the substance of the game and the type of language used in it, when possible.

If you need to know how to change the language setting on your DS, see Nintendo's official website at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/ds/en_la/settings.jsp#language ."
