|Name:||Super Mario 3D Land|
|Console:||Nintendo 3DS (3DS)|
|Super Mario 3D Land is a platform game in the Super Mario series developed by Nintendo EAD Tokyo, with development assistance from Brownie Brown, for the Nintendo 3DS. This is the first Mario game to be released for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was first released in Japan on November 3, 2011, and in North America, Europe, and Australia during the same month. It was revealed at Nintendo's Keynote Conference during the 2011 Game Developers Conference held in San Francisco. Directed by Koichi Hayashida, the game brings the use of stereoscopic 3D to the Mario gaming franchise. A sequel, titled Super Mario 3D World, was released for the Wii U in 2013. Super Mario 3D Land is unique from other games in the Mario series, as it combines elements from both traditional 2D Mario side-scrolling games and modern free-roaming 3D Mario games. It also introduces new elements into the series, including new power-ups and gameplay mechanics. The main story is similar to previous Super Mario titles, centering on Mario's efforts to rescue Princess Peach, who has been kidnapped by Bowser, utilizing the aid of the Tanooki Suit amongst other power-ups.|
There are two components for playing a 3ds Super Mario 3D Land rom on your PC. The first component is the emulation program which can imitate the 3ds OS and software.
The second component is the Super Mario 3D Land rom 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 Super Mario 3D Land rom. 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.
