The Nintendo DS was the first system by Nintendo to use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, people can play with gamers all around the world, and can register them as a friend via the Friend Code system. Several games made use of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, including the fourth and fifth generation Pokémon games, Mario Kart DS and Animal Crossing: Wild World.
With over 130 million units sold worldwide, the Nintendo DS is the best selling Nintendo game system, and the second best-selling game system, only behind the PlayStation 2. This number includes the several redesigns, but does not include the Nintendo 3DS system.
