3DS Emulator Citra Now Supports Nativo Gyro Controls
The 3DS Emulator Citra has been in development for a few years, allowing PC players to enjoy 3DS games with improved graphics and resolution. Some of the console's features have yet to be emulated properly, but one of them has been recently added to the emulator.
The 3DS Emulator Citra now comes with support for native gyro controls, which are used by a few high profile titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D. YouTube user Nerrel recently shared a video showcasing the feature, and you can check it out below.

3DS Emulator Citra currently runs homebrew and commercial software. The emulator doesn't allow to run dumps of games that haven't been decrypted properly, requiring a 3DS console and the actual game cartridge, limiting piracy considerably.
