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

Installation of Citra functions with Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android, although the Android version is in early access as of This Moment. The overall consensus is that Citra setup is very easy, quick, and quite straightforward, with a lot of tutorials and guides available for you. While choosing Citra, you may select between two variants, each of which have advantages and disadvantages to use. The more stable version is Citra Nightly, that's the considerably more secure version of Citra. The second version, called Citra Canary, includes new features, modifications, and upgrades that Nightly does not have. These features are occasionally experimental and might or might not end up from the Nightly version, but they're often features that can not be employed with greater performance, or characteristics that cause the game to lag or work improperly during gameplay.

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