Emulation of Nintendo Network is possible with Pretendo: Open-source project that aims to recreate Nintendo Network for the 3DS and Wii U using clean-room reverse engineering. Pretendo supports any client that can interact with Nintendo Network.
Currently the only emulator with this kind of functionality is Cemu. Cemu 2.0 officially supports Pretendo under your network account options in the emulator. For information on how to get started with Cemu, check out the documentation.
- Currently Juxtaposition working on Citra for Pretendo support. Mikage may provide support in the future though this is far from certain.
- There is a Citra fork for online multiplayer support, currently it only supports connecting to Nintendo Network, but support for Pretendo Network will come eventually.
- See Preservation projects page for more information about other revive projects.
The service will be shutdown by April 8, 2024
