The following is an alphabetical list of Nintendo DS games with a special Game Boy Advance linkage function. When the corresponding Game Boy Advance game cartridge is inserted into the Nintendo DS' GBA slot, special features are unlocked in the Nintendo DS game. Note: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow only works with its corresponding region game. For example, the European version of Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow only works with the European version of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.
