    It's also the same reason why DaedalusX64 managed to be semi-functional on the PSP. Both the N64 and PSP are MIPS. I'm pretty sure early N64 emulation on PC required a 1GHz CPU. Also, expect the Daedalus Vita port to surpass the 3DS port because of the work done to utilize the secondary PSP MIPS CPU to accelerate the emulation, giving the Vita's ARM CPU breathing room to do other things.

    I am all for advances in emulation of any platform. But the idea of playing 3D games on a non-3D platform doesn't appeal to me at all as a New 3DS XL (with SuperStable™ 3d!) owner. Playing a PS3 game under emulation on PC using a DualShock controller is pretty much the same experience. Impossible with Citra.
    It's like playing a Wii motion game with an emulated Wiimote. Why???

    I think the main goal is getting emulators working Stereoscopic 3D is an afterthought.

    I ran N64 games on a 200MMX back in the day....;) - Granted UltraHLE wasn't massively accurate :lol:, but, what a glide!

    3DS on Switch though? Sign me up - keep up the good work m4xw!

    it would be truly awesome if they could get it running on 2 switched at once
    1st switch ,regular switch docked and connected to my TV
    second switch ,switch lite used for the controller and bottom screen
    HARD MODE : enable 3d so i can connect 1st switch to my 3D TV

    or enable the PC emulator to use a modded switch as the controller and bottom screen

    Maybe slow down with some of that and let's just hope the games work period first.

    Anyone who thinks this is going to hurt your Switch is a moron btw. If it can run on Android it's not a stretch to run on Switch at all. M4xw has come out with most of the advanced emulators for Retroarch and he wouldn't be doing this if it would hurt our Switches. Also MelonDS doesn't strain the Switch.

    One of the first citra build for switch runs almost better than current NDS emulator on switch.

    Are you sure about that? MelonDS is actually really good and plays most DS games now.

    I wonder if this eventually could be better than android, even than pc. Sounds might weird but if you optimize to one device, i think it will be good. On android and pc, you hardly do that.

    Isn't DS emulation pretty much perfect on Switch Android?

    i can't wait to play 3DS games on the go! What better way to play classics like Sushi Strikers, even though I hate that game?
