Super Mario, Tetris and the Legend of Zelda are the famous games that are available on Nintendo. If you wish to play the Nintendo games on other platforms you will need to download the emulator for the specific platforms. Here we will guide you the best available Nintendo Emulators.


Citra is the best of all available Nintendo emulator. It is written in c++ and supports a wide range of games and it has an active development team which makes it one of the growing emulator with rich features on it. It’s available on all platform including Mac, Windows, and Linux.


3DMOO is next one in the list, its the half developed version of the emulator and it was begun to develop on Windows and Linux, however, the process didn’t go through and it is still available as a code dump in the git repo. You can get it from the repo and start tweaking it for your needs.


It’s a simple version of the emulator with very fewer features that are developed for the games like Homebrew. It can’t be used to run other games and has the restriction on the usage and the input mapping to the emulator. It’s not a  popular application among people but from the simple gamer it a boon as there are no complex things on it to do. TronDS is completely written in C# and the development is currently stopped.
