About Citra Team

Citra is an open-source emulator for the Nintendo 3DS capable of playing many of your favorite games. It is even capable of up-scaling games to HD, and supports online multplayer for some games! However, developing an emulator for a modern, complex system like the Nintendo 3DS requires significant hard work and dedication from a large team of developers. We'd like to do what we can to deliver the best possible experience for enjoying 3DS games, and for that we need your support!

The money received will go towards:
  • Supporting the Core Citra Developers so they can work as much as possible on Citra and buy any hardware required for development and testing.
  • Web hosting and infrastructure setup.
  • Paying other project related expenses.

What the patrons get in exchange:
  • Prioritized technical support on Discord. We know that emulation can have a steep learning curve, and that users often need a hand to get started. While this may be a bit time-consuming with such a large and active project as Citra, we will do our best to prioritize our supports first.
  • An ability to affect the development of the emulator. Priorities of some tasks can be adjusted according to your wishes.
  • A huge THANK YOU for supporting us!
  • The emulator, Citra - actively developed with the features our users want, forever free and open source!

Previous donations have already been used to purchase several 3DS consoles, games, and host our current website! However, our costs will continue as our team grows, our website grows, and we strive to achieve high game compatibility with Citra.

Thank you for your support!
