Nintendo is by no means an unheard name in the world of retro as well as modern gaming. Their iconic consoles and their gaming flavours are second to none, and they have a massive following of enthusiasts. But as with any of the exiting gaming gigs out there, even popular ones such as the 3DS, there is always the question of where to get the resources for it. In this case, the gaming resource happens to be a ROM, but of course, you would know all but that, given that is a 3DS buff. Thus, you must know from where to get Nintendo 3DS ROMs.
The only problem you face is that you may not know what some trustworthy websites to download your favourite Nintendo 3ds ROMs are.
Well, if you wanted to avoid browsing for good, reliable links on the vast and scary world of the internet, you saved yourself by coming in here. I am going to save you the trouble of going through every link on that overcrowded google search results page and give you the compiled list of 5 trusted websites to download ROMs for your Nintendo 3DS. You can easily use them on your 3ds emulator then.
What is a Nintendo 3DS?
For the uninitiated among you who are reading this article because you are a loyal subscriber to this website (thanks, mate!) or maybe you just happened to stumble across this, let me debrief you on what a 3DS is. In simple words, Nintendo 3DS is a portable gaming device made to make the core experience of portable gaming as premium as possible. It is called as the 3DS because, you guessed it, it has a 3D screen on top of it.
The process of loading games to a 3ds is pretty much the same as you would install games on your android phones or iPhones.
But instead of downloading it directly from a native app store, we load it in the form of a game ROM, by downloading it from a reliable website. If you have a 3DS and are looking for some links, keep reading. On second thought, even if you aren’t looking for one, keep scrolling anyway!
Best Websites to Download Nintendo 3DS ROMs
This is one of the popular websites out there for downloading game ROMs for your console. Portal ROMs have a wide variety of ROMs and support a bunch of different devices such as the N64, gba roms, snes roms, gamecube roms, Wii roms, Wii U roms, and of course, 3DS ROMs. All you need to is head over to the website and start looking for the ROM of your choice.
They have a wide variety of games including Pokémon X, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Super Mario 3D Land, and more. Just click on one of the titles that you want to grab, and you will be presented with numerous download links to that ROM from different servers. Prominent ones being from the USA and Europe.
These links are obviously torrent links, so you will need a simple torrent downloader such as utorrent or BitTorrent on your computer to download your ROMs. I am pretty sure you will already have those because piracy is something which does not need to be introduced formally. It somehow finds a way to spread inanely quickly. And I am not going to lie, it is a crime, but I love it!
This is another website which has reliable links to download N64 ROMs and 3DS ROMS. Just go to their website here and go to the ROMs section. You will find a ton of options from which you need to search for 3DS ROMs.
Fun Fact: You can download and play these ROMs on your Android phone or your iPhone too! You just have to visit the website on your phone and get the thing set up. But you are downloading this for your 3DS, so just focus on that for the time being. Simply download the ROMs you want to place them on an SD card and then put it into the 3DS console.
That’s all there is to it, which I assume you already knew and was a total waste of my energy to type once again. Anyway, you know my principles, I don’t play with backspaces. Let us just move ahead.
ROMNation is another useful place which has hordes of Nintendo 3DS ROMs. You find a lot of games under MAME ROMs meant for Arcades to N64 ROMs as well. Just select the one you are interested in, and the file will start to download directly to your downloads folder.
I did notice that there are a ton of ads for every link that you have to click. It does get pretty annoying, but then again, you can’t complain (a lot) for getting free ROM files. Popular titles like World is not enough are only about 25 MB, so downloads will not be a headache for anyone with a moderate internet connection. Which is to say, everyone!
Check out the site and see if you like the collection of Nintendo 3ds ROMs available on here.
Interesting name, don’t you think? Romtohome is a site which allows you to download a bunch of ROMs for different platforms for free. To check out the list of ROM game files, click on the Nintendo drop-down menu that you see in your top right corner. You will see all the new releases and add-ons in that page.
Other than the download links themselves, this website struck quite aesthetically pleasing to me.
Though it might not sound so important, because we are solely after the download links, a good website will always have to return customers to it. If your site, though it might be good, looks shay, to begin with, people might think twice about downloading from your links or even visiting your website ever again. There’s a little something that web developers among you should keep in mind.
To download, just click on one of the ROM links. A new tab will open up, and it will ask you to enter a simple captcha code being shown there to verify that you are not an automated program (robot). It is understandable for any decent website security because they have to do it to protect against unlawful actions of robots. It did take quite a long time to load on my crappy internet connection, but perhaps you LTE folk will have better experience and luck.
This site is for them hustlers out there! Not really, it is just another website to download some ROMs and save a few bucks with the help of piracy, that’s all!
The Wii ISO are listed in alphabetical order as usual. You just need to select the platform and the console type for which you are looking to download the game ROMs and simply click on it. It will list the game name and will display the number of downloads as well as the rating for it, to help you better decide which ISO you want.
Once you see a ROM file that you like, just click on it and you are presented with a set of download links to it. It opened pretty fast even on my poor internet connection, s this should be a very speedy website for an average one. Check it out. You just might find the Nintendo 3DS ROMs you were looking for in there. Enjoy!
