About Nintendo 3DS Emulation
Emulation for Nintendo 3DS has been a daunting task for anyone to tackle because there are virtually no documentations for its hardware. Not only this, Nintendo was fanatical about sealing off their hardware and their source codes. This is why there is virtually no working emulator for Nintendo 3DS that has hit the market.
Formed by two veteran hacker, 3DS Emulator Pro is a humble attempt at creating a working emulation program for Nintendo 3DS game console. Under development since 2012, the project has been making a slow but steady progress behind the scenes.
Now our team is ready to release the very first working version of emulation software for Nintendo 3DS.
This free software is rough around the edges but it currently runs on all Windows PCs. Mac versions will be announced early 2014.
3DS Emulator Pro is able to run several commercial games (current game compatibility list can be found here).
