Where to download Nintendo 3DS Games?

Posted by Ian Brooks

If you have a Nintendo 3DS console, then getting an R4 3DS card is an absolute treat. R4 3DS cards not only allow you to run homebrew applications and use a cheating software, but it also allows you to play a whole lot of games on your Nintendo 3DS.

What do I mean by this? Normally, when you do not use an R4 3DS card, you will have to buy the physical copies of the games you want to play on the console. This is a good idea and all, but how are you supposed to bring all of those games with you all the time?

Bringing 1-3 physical copies of your games are okay, but what if you have more than 50 games in your gaming library? It can be quite problematic to bring all of them, right?

Thankfully, you can get an R4 3DS card and that problem of having a lot of games at your disposal will be solved. How, you ask? It will be solved because you can just download games over the internet and put them in your R4 3DS card.

So, now you’re asking, “where do I download Nintendo 3DS games?” Well, in this article, I will give you some websites where you can download legitimate Nintendo 3DS games.


Here are just some tried and tested websites that offer a plethora of Nintendo 3DS games for download:

  1. Nitro ROMS- Nitro ROMS is the first website on the list because it offers a lot of Nintendo 3DS games. If you’re looking for the most popular Nintendo 3DS games, this website has all of them. What’s nice about this ROM download website is that there is a flag of the country a particular game was released. For example, you will see the Japanese flag if the game is the Japanese version and you will see the flag of the USA if the game is the North American version. There are just a couple of minor quirks about this website. For one, the website is a little bit clunky in a sense that the interface is not so appealing. Second, when you browse for games, you will only be presented with a list of text with no actual pictures. Still, this is a good place to start if you want to download Nintendo 3DS games.
  2. 3DS ISO- This place is also where you can download Nintendo 3DS games. The big difference is that this is a forum and not an actual website like Nitro ROMS. I actually prefer this forum, though, because it not only offers free Nintendo 3DS games for download, it also offers updated versions of R4 3DS cards’ firmware. Also, if there is a rare game you want to ask, you can ask in the forum and some nice people would upload it for you. Nice, huh?
  3. Portal ROMS- The last website on the list is Portal ROMS. The beauty of this website is that each game has a corresponding picture and a rating system to it. You can discern quickly if a game is good by looking at just the ratings themselves.

These websites should be good places to start if you want to download Nintendo 3DS games for free. Do remember that you need to have an R4 3DS card for the games to work.
