But if you have an old unpatched version of the Nintendo Switch then there is a method from which might DS games work on your switch. For this method, you need to have the following items.

  1. Unpatched Nintendo Switch
  2. Custom homebrew
  3. Custom firmware
  4. Micro SD Card
  5. USB Cable

If you already have Unpatched Nintendo Switch then you need to have Custom Homebrew its unauthorized software by Nintendo which means you’re jailbreaking into the Nintendo Switch if you use this software.

After that, you need to have Custom Firmware that helps you to patch up the Switch OS.
