3DS Emulators

3DS Emulators - Download Pokemon X and Y Rom and more on your PC!


     Welcome to the best place for Nintendo 3DS emulators! Our site features an online 3DS emulator that will allow you to play any Nintendo Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, and Nintendo DS and 3DS games ever made! Our emulator is designed after several open source engines that are used in the top rated standalone emulator releases, and we have designed ours to run online! No more downloading all kinds of emulators in hope that you’ll be able to play your favorite Pokemon or Zelda games! Our site also works on almost every portable device and smartphone, so it is easier than ever to play your favorite games from any device! Our emulator is fully optimized so it requires very little resources to run. Our emulator also features a Gameshark plugin, the ability to emulate a link between different devices, and online play against other people! You may have read about us or Citra on reddit, but because it’s free to use our emulator, you don’t have to worry about getting into any trouble. According to federal regulation, it is only illegal to possess a digital copy of a game you don’t own a license to, or to distribute a digital copy without expressing requirement of ownership of a license for the video game in question. Because you don’t have to download anything to use our service, we do not have to check our users for licenses to play the titles on our site because they’ll never raise suspicion for using our emulators and ROMs online!

     Our emulator is designed to run all Gameboy platforms from the original Gameboy system all the way up to the Nintendo 3DS! In addition to creating an emulator that can run all of Nintendo’s handheld systems, we have integrated several other features from all of their portable consoles. Some of the features, such as the connection link from Gameboy advance has been updated with an online multiplayer link. Our servers allow you to set up private, encrypted game connections with your friends from any device! You can trade Pokemon and more, all online. Our servers provide you the fastest connections you will find in any online 3DS emulators.

     Our emulator also contains several different ways to use Gameshark and other hex editing cheats and hacks on your favorite games! Some people argue that cheating is for people that aren’t good at their game, but most gamers agree that using cheat engines can breath new life, if even only for a little bit, to an old favorite. We noticed a big lack of a complete emulator that had this feature combined with all of our other features in both the online emulators we tested and the standalone emulators that require you to download and install a new program. We truly believe we have built the most complete all in one Nintendo portable console emulator. We will give you the best way for running the Nintendo 3DS Emulator for PC and Mac:

  • Go to one of the download mirrors by clicking the “Download” button.
  • Download the zip file.
  • Unzip the file and open the installer.
  • Run the installer.
  • Choose a path to install to and wait for install.
  • After successful installation, open the Nintendo 3DS Emulator from the folder.
  • Follow the guide to finish.

     One of the biggest questions we get sent in to our site is “Isn’t it illegal to post up these games online for free without Nintendo’s permission”. The answer is that would be illegal if we didn’t ask you to avoid using titles you don’t own. We personally think that people should be able to try a video game out before they spend money on it, but that is not how the law says it works. Because we do not provide any downloads though, we do not have to check to see if you have a copy of the license. If you have ever purchased any of the games and accidentally broke you physical copy, the good news is you still technically own the license and can play the game on our emulator. This is another reason we simply use the honor system and entrust our users to use their best judgment.

     With all that said on the legality of our website, it is good to keep in mind that our users are never in actual possession of any of our roms on the site, so our users do not have anything to worry about anyways. In addition to being allowed for online use, our security is fantastic too. We don’t have huge requirements for power to run our emulator online, so we are able to maintain great server encryption for our site!

     We hope that you are able to enjoy all of your favorite games, old and new, with our online service! You’ll find yourself playing games you haven’t thought about or played in years with our awesome game collection! Enjoy your gaming experience!
