Citra Wiki

Currently, there are four real Nintendo 3DS Emulators: Citra, 3dmoo, TronDS and XDS. These emulators are real, however, the emulations are of course not perfect, as there are still some elements not yet emulated that certain games utilize or require) and the hardware on it is still not fully understood. Therefore, although a few commercial games are playable on Citra, XDS, and 3dmoo (as of now, TronDS and can only play homebrew games), some are extremely laggy (virtually unplayable) and some games don't even start at all. However, some commercial games, (even big titles such as Kirby Triple Deluxe) are fully playable, with no issues at all at 60 FPS.

The list of Homebrew Games and Emulators are below. Please note that although the games are ON this page, they might not have been fully tested yet. Certain games will obviously perform better and more games will become playable as more and more updates come through, so the list is constantly updating and changing. Keep checking back if your game does not work, is slow, or is not tested.
