3 Of The Top Nintendo 3DS Emulators For Android
One of the most well-regarded names in the 3DS emulation scene, no matter what platform you’re playing on, is Citra. Citra is an open-source emulator available on a variety of platforms, including PC, MacOS, Linux, and of course, Android.
Citra is designed to faithfully recreate as many features of the original 3DS as possible and do so in a modern and upscaled manner. The emulator is compatible with hundreds of games from the 3DS library and has support for most of the console’s supplemental features like motion controls, AR cameras, and microphones. Naturally, it also has full support for external controller hookups, though you can also control your games through your Android touchscreen if you don’t have a controller.
If you’re using a higher-end Android device, you can make use of Citra’s graphical enhancement features, including resolution scaling and texture filtering, all to enhance your games’ visual fidelity as much as possible. Citra is available for free download on the Google Play Store. For a list of compatible games, visit the official Citra website.
