Co-op games for DS for girlfriend and me

edited May 2009 in Help / Advice Forum
Hey guys,

So my girlfriend and I have just picked up Final Fantasy, Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time and are having fun playing it, but the problem is, it doesn't allow multiple saves, and we also play with another friend of mine. What this means is that, we can't really play just my girlfriend and I when our friend isn't around, or we'll progress beyond him and he'll be underlevelled.

Thing is, we've really enjoyed playing our DSes together in bed at night and now that we can't play Final Fantasy without alienating our other friend, we're looking for suggestions on new Co-op DS games we can play instead.

Preference:

Must be Co-op
Preferably adventure/RPG, no strategy games (so no Advance Wars or Fire Emblem)
Wireless or Internet play, no problem (we have a router)

Thanks for your suggestions!

    Can't really come up with a co-op adventure game except Children of Mana and the other Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates.

    I've been searching for something similar, as well.

    Most multiplayer DS games hinge on mini-games or versus. There are pretty much no RPG/Adventure games with a co-op feature readily available. The closest I've come is picking up both versions of Pokemon, which has limited but somewhat meaningful interaction. Try the other FF:CC if it's working and the save slot is the only issue.

    This thread reminds me of the disappointing and surprising lack of Four Swords in the current DS library.

    Are there any old co-op GBA RPGs? Final Fantasy, etc?

    Elite beat Agents is fun to play with friends and such. Its a bit competitive but still good. As far as co-op adventure games go for the DS I'm comming up blank.

    if I'm not entirely mistaken there is a co-op story mode in advanced wars dual strike

    In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side

    After I read your first sentence and before I read the second, my thought was "sure, if you're trying to cause DOMESTIC VIOLENCE."

    Seriously, Dokapon is a good game, but it will cause depths of hatred towards people you care about that you never thought possible. It's worse than Mario Party.

    It's a terrible game, but Dungeon Explorer has a Diablo-esque Co-Op mode. Unfortunately, the multiplayer is more like Gauntlet than Diablo, and you can't level together or go through the campaign together. You do get gear from multiplayer, but that's about it. It was amusing enough for a few days of play for me and my sig other, though.

    Perfect game for playing together while lying in bed.

    I never could get into any of the Animal Crossing games (I'm too much of a goal-oriented person I think), but I can see it being a ton of fun for what you're looking for.

    I've suggested this, but I'm too much of a Pokemon psycho that I've scared her off of the franchise forever.
