    Wait a second... He wants Nintendo to give him an SDK, which is used to make the software/game, but he has already made it.
    What he has to do now is get Nintendo to license it and then find a publisher.

    That's not how it works. The game is made, but it's a lot of work getting it to run properly on a console. That's what the SDK is for.

    I know how it works, I am a programmer.

    An SDK is used to program a game as it provides the needed libraries an applications needed to create the game/application that you want. Besides he has shown it running on a DS, so he needs the publishing and licensing from Nintendo.

    An SDK would help him with future projects, but not with this current one.
