    There's a Nintendo DS Emulator that has just been released for Android called DraStic, whats special about this emulator is that it's the first to be able to play games at 100% speed.

    DraStic running on my phone:

    Galaxy Nexus with a 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and a 384 MHz PowerVR SGX540 GPU and 1gb of ram, so mid spec compared to Android phones out today, however runs at 100% speed.

    DraStic running on my Asus Transformer Prime Android Tablet, the tablet has a 1.3 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 and 1gb of ram.

    I actually quite like it on my phone, its just the right size and the controls work great on it. I think touch only games will work a lot better on a tablet, however for playing something like Pokemon / Mario i think you would really need a Bluetooth controller to get the best experience.

    The emulator can be purchased on the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dsemu.drastic, if your a fan of Nintendo games and want a good way to play them on your mobile device this is what your looking for.

    I'm honestly quite impressed how well it works on a mobile phone, and of course you have real tuch screen functions unlike when emulating a DS on most computers / laptops.

    Ah, yes. I read about this, I wonder how well it will run on an OUYA... I read that it supported physical buttons...

    I've read it supposed to run really well on the Ouya, not sure how it will emulate any touch screen functions on there. Maybe it will use one of the thumb sticks as a mouse / pointing device to touch the bottom screen.

    I've been using this emulator to play TWEWY. It runs flawlessly and looks a bit better than it did on the DS. I'll have to check out the SMT games after i'm done with TWEWY.
