Citra is a Nintendo 3DS emulator. It is completely free, multi system and open source, created by a team of developers called Citra Team. It can emulate sound entirely, something which RYUJINX can not do. Multiplayer through networked WiFi is encouraged, which lets you play multiplayer games with other individuals, though they must be using Citra. You can not play multiplayer with people which are using a real Nintendo 3DS.

Setup of Citra works with Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android, though the Android version is in early access as of This Moment. The general consensus is that Citra setup is extremely easy, fast, and quite straightforward, with a lot of guides and tutorials available for you. While choosing Citra, you may select between two variants, both of which have advantages and pitfalls to use. The more steady variation is Citra Nightly, that's the much more stable version of Citra. The second version, called Citra Canary, includes new features, alterations, and upgrades that Nightly doesn't have. These features are occasionally experimental and might or might not wind up from the Nightly variant, but they're often features that can not be employed with better functionality, or characteristics that cause the game to lag or operate improperly during gameplay.

You need Windows 7, 8, or 10 to perform either Citra version on Windows. To play on MacOS, you'll need version 10.13 High Sierra or even higher. To perform on Linux, you will require a 64-bit contemporary edition, and Windows 8 is required to operate Citra on any and all Android apparatus. Officially, all hardware must be at least 64-bit to run Citra's software. To play games, then you'll need both a Nintendo 3DS and a game cartridge. Citra includes a large assortment of games which you could playwith, but you have to get the game cartridge of each game you need to play. This can make gameplay very inconvenient.
