3DS games cannot be played on a DS lite. You need a console from the 3DS family - 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, New 3DS, New 3DS XL.

No, the Nintendo DS Lite cannot play Nintendo 3DS games.

However, the Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo DS lite can connect together to play DS games, but not 3DS games.

Can you play Nintendo 3ds games on Nintendo ds lite?

No the 3DS game cards are shaped slightly different then the Nintendo Ds. Of course if you could put the 3DS game cards in the Ds lite it would still not work because the features and intense graphics the nintendo 3DS requires for games can't be used on the Ds lite. Don't buy 3DS games for the Ds lite as it just won't work. You can consider buying a 3DS however as the 3DS is backwards compatible with all DS games.
