Wow Ntorrents is open after what seems like a lifetime. This is without a doubt one of the best resources on the net for Nintendo games downloads. Ntorrents tracks a large selection of games for a number of different Nintendo consoles such as the Wii, GameCube, Nintendo DS, GBA. N64 and more (they now have an XBOX360 games section for X360 fans as well). This tracker hasn’t had an open signup in months. If memory serves correct, last time nTorrents opened up was back in late 2008, almost an year ago. Now here’s the good news – public registrations at NTorrents has been opened for a limited period and if you were looking forward to get in, now is the perfect time.
Running on the Gazelle codebase, Ntorrents has one of the best looking interfaces among private torrent trackers. User interface is sleek, has smooth navigation and is very well organized. NT actually was one of the very first private trackers to migrate to Gazelle. This site has been online since 2008 and has established a solid footprint in the BitTorrent community. As of 24/10/2009 Ntorrents tracks over 4400 active torrents and has a user base close to 10000 members.
A said earlier NT is primarily a tracker for Nintendo games. You can find and download games (and in some cases ROMs) for the following Nintendo consoles:
- Nintendo DS
- GameBoy Advance
- GameBoy Classic
- Super Nintendo
- Nintendo 64
Note that the default ‘Torrents’ page will mostly show you Nintendo torrents. But this tracker does have a large number of XBOX360 torrents which can be accessed by the torrents2.php page (‘x360’ link at the topmost toolbar or via the xbox360 category in search). In addition to games, they have some books, OSTs and some game related movies indexed as well. Part of the torrent index can be seen in the screenshot below:
