...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

The Digital Sound Elements engine was released by Procyon Studios on July 1, 2007 for use on the PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, and Wii. Games it was used in include Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness & Time. Like some other sound engines, not that much is known about this engine due to the rarity of usage on the DS.
