iOS: The biggest emulator on the market is officially coming to iPhone, Nintendo 64, GameBoy and PSP games are yours!


For a little over a month it has been possible to download emulators directly from the App Store. This doesn’t seem like much if you’re playing on PC or Android, but for iPhone users it’s nothing short of a minor revolution. Indeed, Apple had long banned developers from publishing their emulators on the app store. Until the European Union added its two cents under the guise of DMA.

With the breach now clear, several emulators have flooded the App Store, starting with Delta, which was first available on Altstore. Today, perhaps one of the most well-known names in emulation comes. Of course retroarch, This is actually an application that combines multiple emulators. Here is the list of all consoles that can be emulated with it:

  • Atari 2600
  • Atari 5200
  • Atari 7800
  • Bandai WonderSwan
  • Commodore systems
  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo Game Boy/Color
  • Nintendo Game Boy Advance
  • NintendoNES
  • Nintendo 64
  • Nintendo SNES
  • Nintendo Virtual Boy
  • Neo Geo Pocket
  • Sega Genesis
  • Sega Saturn
  • Sony Playstation
  • Sony PSP

Retroarch is now available on the App Store

RetroArch is particularly appreciated by gamers due to its advanced features. It is possible to play games using the Xbox or PlayStation controller via Bluetooth, which is especially useful when playing PS1 games on your iPhone. Also note that the list of emulated consoles above is not comprehensive and you’ll need to find what you’re looking for by looking for more niche machines.

As a reminder, RetroArch found itself at the center of a controversy last year when Xbox decided to no longer support the app on its Series without any warning by rehabilitating the emulator. It’s enough to have a good idea of ​​its popularity.
