Back in the 80s and 90s, video-games were programmed in ASM but I doubt a Nintendo DS game like NSMB was (fully) programmed in ASM. Did Nintendo use some kind of proprietary language specific to the Nintendo DS along with the adapted tools to translate it to ASM ?

Well, as far as I know most of Nintendo's games (that applies also to newer consoles) are coded in C/C++ and occasionally ASM. But I might be wrong.

So is there any way to disassemble the game's code into C ? That would make hacking much easier.

Tools (like IDA Pro) help, but it needs a lot of work too.

Did they use something like Visual Studio ?
