    The ever-evolving 3DS emulator juggernaut, Citra, has just revealed a new feature; networking support. Thanks to the hard work of the emulator developers, you'll now be able to emulate select 3DS titles, and have wireless support. In the latest Canary Citra builds, local wireless support will work with people across the world.

    Some of the following games that function are: Super Smash Bros., the 3DS Pokemon games, and New Super Mario Bros. 2. Luigi' Mansion: Dark Moon and Monster Hunter 3U/4U also work, but have multiple issues. The Citra team claims that future updates will work on optimizing the netcode, and getting more games to work.

    This looks great. Props to the devs; it's comforting to know that Smash Run with others online is now somewhat possible.

    Thanks Chary!

    To be clear, this is local wireless play only.
    Still very cool as there are a ton of games that use this feature in lieu of true internet multiplayer.
    So this potentially greatly enhances the 3ds's online scene provided more games get support.

    Can't wait for TASbots to beat random people online in smash.

    Jeez, tell me about it. The actual AI in the game is bad enough, what with their tendency to fucking perfect-shield everything. I can only imagine the hell TASBots would bring.

    I wonder if any emulators can do local wireless with real systems? It be something I wondered long time. Since both a pc and game system have wifi right?

    Imagine you playing smash, then some TASbot exploits it to become a game of poker, if you lose your 3DS bricks.

    You can use Citra to play local wireless games online, though. In other words, hypothetically, even if the game doesn't have online features, if it has local wireless multiplayer, you can play online using that through Citra.

    I don't know why you would use Citra, tbh. It's just for people who already have PCs that can run Citra.

    Maybe because people want to use it? Because they can? Ever thought of that?

    It wouldn't have a NFC chip in it for amiibo, and extra N3DS processing power would be null since its run on a PC. I can't say I've seen any features of a N3DS that would work via emulation.
