Citra Emulator

Citra is a Nintendo 3DS emulator. It's completely free, multi platform and open source, created by a group of developers known as Citra Team. It may emulate sound entirely, something which RYUJINX can not do. Multiplayer through networked WiFi is supported, which lets you play multiplayer games with other people, though they must be using Citra. You can't play multiplayer with individuals that are using a real Nintendo 3DS.

Installation of Citra functions with Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android, though the Android version is in early access as of now. The overall consensus is that Citra setup is extremely simple, quick, and rather simple, with a great deal of guides and tutorials available for you. While choosing Citra, you may choose between two variants, both of which have advantages and pitfalls to use. The more steady variation is Citra Nightly, which is the considerably more secure variant of Citra. The second version, called Citra Canary, includes new features, modifications, and upgrades that Nightly does not have. These attributes are sometimes experimental and might or might not end up in the Nightly variant, but they're often features that can't be employed with better performance, or characteristics that cause the game to lag or operate improperly during gameplay.

You want Windows 7, 8, or 10 to play either Citra version on Windows. To perform on MacOS, you will need version 10.13 High Sierra or higher. To perform on Linux, you'll need a 64-bit modern edition, and Windows 8 is required to run Citra on any and all Android devices. Officially, all hardware must be at least 64-bit to operate Citra's applications. To play games, then you'll need both a Nintendo 3DS along with a game controller. Citra includes a large collection of games which you could play, but you have to have the game cartridge of each game you need to play. This can make gameplay quite inconvenient.
