Overview[edit]

Mikage is a Nintendo 3DS emulator for Android devices developed by Tony Wasserka, also known as neobrain, a prominent emudev who has contributed to Dolphin, PPSSPP, and Citra. Mikage was 99% created from scratch, starting in 2016, as he believed no one else would fill the gap of 3DS emulation on Android. While those three aforementioned projects are open-source, Mikage is currently closed, though neobrain is interested in opening much of the source code at some point. Milage was publicly announced on the official website and Twitter account on July 1, 2019, though neobrain had been working on the project for three years prior, starting in 2016. And he got The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D to work in it in 2018.

The games that can currently run are The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Cubic Ninja, and Retro City Rampage DX.

Progress blog reports can be found at the official Mikage website. A private Discord channel link (much more active than Reddit) is only provided to those on a $5 US tier or above in the Patreon account.
