In 2019, the Nintendo Switch is already cracked, but we still can’t play 3DS Games on the console, No 3ds emulator for Switch and no such flashcart to use at the same time. Nintendo Switch can be hacked to play free Switch games, NDS games, Gamecube games, N64 games, PSP games and much more, but still not for 3DS Emulation. If you want to play other games on Switch, just follow the guide, if you only want to play 3DS games, then just buy yourself a Nintendo 3DS or use the 3DS Emulator for PC-Citra3ds.

Step 1: Check your Switch is hackable or not

Go to this site to view ismyswitchpatched.com to check whether or not its hackable or not.

Step 2: Buy yourself a modkit tool-Xecuter SX Pro, the easiest way to hack your Switch

Buy the Xecuter SX Pro from official sites, such as the Italian one – Italiamods, the Spanish one-NXmodificar.com.

Step 3: Boot SX OS CFW on Switch with the SX Pro Dongle and RCM Jig

  • Extract SX OS to your Nintendo Switch’ microSD card. Your card microSD can be formatted as FAT32 or exFAT.
  • Insert SX Pro dongle and tool into your Nintendo Switch. The dongle goes in the charger port, the tool in the right joycon rail.
  • Hold volume up and press the power button, SX OS should start. You can remove the dongle and tool once SX OS starts.

Step 4: Install Retroarch on Nintendo Switch

  • Download the RetroArch 7z file for Switch (download link above http://retroarch.com/?page=platforms).
  • Extract its contents and just drag and drop retroarch and the switch folder onto the root of the SD card.
  • Open Hbmenu, and start RetroArch.

IMPORTANT: Please start RetroArch Switch with a fresh install (in case you already had RetroNX installed before) and migrate savegames from /retroarch/cores/save{files, states} to the same folder on the new installation.

Step 5: Play games on your console

  • To locate and install the RetroArch.NSP file, scroll to the Installer section of the SX OS Menu and find the RetroArch Icon.
  • Now simply hit “A” and install the RetroArch.NSP file to either the internal NAND storage or external microSD card.
  • After the installation is completed, you can return to the home screen and the RetroArch icon should have been added to the grid.
  • Now, simply open up the RetroArch app and you will be greeted by the Main Menu interface, which looks a lot like the Switch Settings menu.
  • Before we can play our games, we have to select the core on which the game runs. In the case of Nintendo 64 ROMs, this is the Mupen64Plus core.
  • To enable this core, go back to the Main Menu and go to the option “Load Core”. Then, scroll down until you see “Nintendo – Nintendo64 (Mupen64Plus)” and select this core.
  • Finally, we can locate the ROMs of the games we have placed on our microSD card.
  • In my case, I’ve created a folder called “ROMS” on the root of my SD. Go back to the Main Menu first and click on “Load Content”. Then select the forward slash symbol (/) and select the folder you’ve placed your ROMs in.
  • You will see the games compatible with the previously selected core listed here. Since I have transferred Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64, these ROMs show up for me.
  • Once you’ve selected the game you want to play, RetroArch will boot this game with the selected core (Mupen64Plus in this case). Now you can finally enjoy the best N64 games straight from your Nintendo Switch, enjoy!
