GDC can compile for Nintendo DS[1] (at least it was possible some months
ago). I've run a simple D Hello World test (writing hello world to the
display, touchscreen input) using libnds. There's no druntime port and
the DS probably doesn't have enough RAM for the GC. The compiler is 99%
ready but I don't really have time to work on a runtime port.

[1] using the devkitARM buildscripts. Checkout correct GDC
branch, ./setup-gcc.sh the GCC sources, modify devkitARM build script to
include --enable-languages=d --disable-libphobos
