|Name:||Super Mario Maker|
|Console:||Nintendo 3DS (3DS)|
|Super Mario Maker is a side-scrolling platform video game and game creation system developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U game console, which released worldwide in September 2015. Players are able to create and play their own custom courses, based on Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U, and share them online. Over time, new editing tools are unlocked, allowing players to download and play courses designed by other players. Super Mario Maker received critical acclaim upon its release, with reviewers praising the game's user interface and course editing tools. By May 2016, over seven million courses had been created by players worldwide, which had been played over 600 million times. An adapted port for the Nintendo 3DS, known as Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, was released in December 2016.|
There are two components for playing a 3ds Super Mario Maker 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 Maker 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 Maker 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.
