Description

Citra 3DS is a new emulator for Mac , enabling you to play your favorite games on your PC desktop (see also Windows, iOS and Android OS version).

This is a work-in-progress Nintendo 3DS emulator started in early 2013.

Citra can currently emulate, with varying degrees of success, a wide variety of different homebrew applications and commercial software.

Features

Citra can run most games at variable speed, depending on your hardware configuration.

However, not all games are created equally and therefore some games will run at full speed while others might suffer from slow emulation.

You may also experience some slowdowns.

Include:

  • Compatibility with hundreds of games
  • Enhanced graphics, such as resolution scaling and texture filtering (these optional features work best on high-end devices)
  • Support for various built-in features, such as the camera, microphone, and motion controls
  • Support for external gamepads

You can download last version of this app on the button below.

Citra does not natively run dumps of games that have not been decrypted properly (unless you have dumped your own system keys).

This requires a physical 3DS and the game you own.

Citra does NOT support Macs with M1 chipsets.

This Mac builds may run through Rosetta, but you will encounter various issues that we won’t provide support for.
