Source code Leaked

Ensata is a Nintendo DS emulator made by Nintendo, named after the Nintendo DS's codename. Its function was to be a quick debugger for developers and eventually it ran commercial games - though compatibility is very low. Originally two versions (v1.3c and v1.4d) were leaked from official sources in 2005 and 2006, albeit cracked in a way that let users play games through these emulators. Later, in 2020, the source code was leaked, showing that development continued on until at least 2009. An interesting function is its ability to emulate the physical gap between the two screens of an actual Nintendo DS system.
