It was then remade for a 2005 worldwide release on the Nintendo DS with touchscreen and microphone support, as well as a new episode with the DS' exclusive features that would be used in later games of the series. The Game Boy Advance version was ported to Windows in 2005 and to Wii via WiiWare in 2009, with a separate release for Episode 5 via WiiWare in 2010.
