        You have to change your date like the instructions said before visiting the site. It seems Safari has blocked it from view so changing your date allows you to get by that.

        Nintendo took down NDS4IOS and the team is trying to get it back up. Not sure how long it will take but don’t give up on it just yet. It’d be worth it, I promise.

      Is nds , emulator and other stuff illegal to apple , cause android is still allowing users to download it. So why did they take it down ??
