Nintendo has had a cult following since the 1980s. It has given gamers across the globe plenty of original and exclusive titles that one can enjoy for hours on end. Its latest consoles and titles still attract a multitude of loyal fans today. The Nintendo 3DS, released in 2011 is the most recent product, and its most notable feature is that it uses autostereoscopic 3D, which can be configured using a slider.
Super Mario, Pokemon X and Y, and The Legend of Zelda are some of the games you can enjoy on the 3DS. And since these games are so well-loved, it is no wonder that players who don’t have a Nintendo console also want to play the game on their own devices. For such a long time, the gaming world waited for an emulator that would allow 3DS games to be played on various platforms.
Thankfully, there are a few emulators that you can use to play Nintendo 3DS games on your Android, Mac, or Windows device. Citra is the most recommended one so far. There is also Tron3DS and 3dmoo. However, because most of them are still in the developing stages, don’t expect them to run perfectly and smoothly. The good news is more developers are working hard to improve 3DS emulators, so we can hope that our gaming possibilities on multiple devices will become even more flexible and reliable in the near future.
Because of the high demand for 3DS emulators, there are some people who are taking advantage of this need and are tricking others into downloading what they claim to be a legit emulator. But when someone does install their ’emulator’, they actually end up infecting their device with a virus. So be wary of these fake 3DS emulators and use only those that have credible and reliable reviews.
