    Ever wanted to play Nintendo 3DS games on your Android device? Well, the Citra development team has just made your dreams reality, with their brand new release of Citra Android. The hard work from many different developers, including ones who have previously worked on Dolphin and Yuzu, has culminated in a beta version of the official build of Citra that you can grab from the Google Play Store for free. Running Citra on your phone or tablet will require, at minimum, Android 8 Oreo and support for OpenGL ES 3.2. Having a snapdragon 835 chip is recommended in order to get the best performance possible, but isn't mandatory. The Android version of the emulator even has features such as microphone support, camera support for scanning QR codes, and was shown running Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Mario Kart 7, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Fates, and more, in addition to certain Virtual Console titles.

    Minor cosmetic stuff as a bonus for those who support the devs, it appears.

    Ever wanted to melt your Android smartphone? Citra is already power hungry in a PC, I can't imagine what it would do to something with way less cooling.

    I thought it was already out, huh.

    Does it have controller support?

    For added fun, you can use this to run the Daedalus64 emulator on your phone!

    I thought they already had Citra (or some form of Citra with a different name) for Android? Either way this is great. Now you can play 3DS games on the go without the need of a 3DS!

    Do you guys know if there will be a form of Citra for IOS soon? It sounds a bit trickier for Citra to attempt at getting on the Apple app store to be honest.

    There is also Mikage for Android. But that still has way to go.

    Nothing a quick Google search can't fix.

    It's not that bad. I'm getting full speed on OoT 3D with a Snapdragon 845. 2x resolution is no good though. Probably much better on the 855 and 865.

    don't recommend on a SnapDragon 632 because you get slow speed. (moto g7 power) just tested it on this phone.
