There are tons of ways to play GameCube games like Sonic Adventure DX, Cars, and other GameCube games on a DS, however I will show you how to turn a DS into a GameCube and play GameCube games on it. I should call the GameCubified DS the Nintendo DSCube. 

All you need is a Nintendo DS of any choice,  a GameCube, a GameCube controller and a screwdriver.

Step 1: Unscrewing the Systems

Step 3: Adding the Memory Card Slots
