The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, known in Japan as The Legend of Zelda: The Triforce of the Gods 2, is an action-adventure game for Nintendo 3DS and the seventeenth installment in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. The game is set in the same world as the 1991/1992 Super Nintendo Entertainment System title, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, taking place six generations following that game's events. The game was released on November 22, 2013, in North America and Europe; November 23, 2013, in Australia; and December 26, 2013, in Japan. It is the second retail game in the series released on the 3DS, after The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It was released to critical acclaim, and sold 2.18 million copies by the end of 2013, despite being released just 40 days before the end of the year.
There are two components for playing a 3ds The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game on your PC. The first component is the emulation program which can imitate the 3ds OS and software.
The second component is the The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game itself to play on the emulator.
Step 1: you can start by downloading a reliable and bug free emulator. We’d suggest Citra – it’s open source, fast and one of the most frequently updated.
Once you have finished downloading Citra, extract the downloaded .7z file to a location, for example your Desktop. After, double click the citra-setup-windows.exe file in order to start the emulator.
Your emulator will now be ready to play The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. But now you’ll need to find the correct ROMs online. A ROM is essentially a virtual version of the game that needs to be loaded into the emulator.
Step 2: return to Citra and hit File > Open. Navigate to the downloaded .exe file and double click it to open it. The game will now run on the emulator and you can play the game freely.
Tip: Saving games on an emulator functions a little differently. The integrated save system will not save your progress.
Instead, you’ll need to click File > Save State and then choose an empty slot. You can save your progress in whatever point you like within the game, not only on the official checkpoints offered by the game.
When playing in the future and you want to continue from your saved state, you can use File > Load State to load up the game from exactly where you last saved it.
