Are there any more VNs for the DS?:

Besides Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk, Time Hollow, 999, and the Ace Attorney series, what else is there for me to get? I can't think of any more titles that were released stateside...

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

Sorry, missed the '999' in your post.

There's also the two Jake Hunter games.

Another Code, aka Trace Memory, is sometimes regarded as a fusion of adventure game and visual novel.

Likewise, the Life Signs game has been called a combination of surgery game and visual novel.

Lux-Pain was released in English, but I haven't heard many good things about it. It has an overall score of 48 on Metacritic (assuming you trust the site and reviewers...)

Tecmo Koei released a serious visual novel in English called Again. It has an overall score of 52 on Metacritic.

The early DS game Sprung is a western romance game. I don't know if it's well regarded. It shows up in bargain bins quite a bit...

Finally, regarding fan translations... Jjjewel finished work on Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side DS back in December 2010. And it looks like a complete translation for the second Girl's Side game will be released in the next few days. Please keep in mind that translation patches will not work with a legit import cartridge.

I think that Lux-Pain is not a bad game, really, it just has a bad localization.

Not really much you can do about that though, unless there is a fan-translation...

I haven't looked at Lux-Pain in a year or two. From what I recall, the voiced dialogue seemed out of sync, and inconsistent with the on-screen text. But if you're okay with emulation, then you may want to look for the Lux-Pain undub — it retains the English text, and replaces the dubbed voices with the original Japanese voices.

Just a moment ago, I searched for "touhou ds, " and the most relevant site was created by a person who's been adapting commercial (and mostly) official English visual novels for DS emulation and flash carts. According to http://www.weeaboo.nl/index.php , installed copies are required. It uses Digital Haze's visual novel reader (at http://www.digital-haze.net/vnds.php ), which contains DS flash cart ports of freeware and unlicensed English VNs.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
