AnsweredWhat is the Best Way to Record 3DS Gameplay? [2024]

I still have a launch day 3DS, live in Canada. What's the cheapest site that you guys could recommend? I've heard that you can softmod a New 3DS to capture gameplay. Is that a better option than a hard option?

There are five recommended ways to record 3DS gameplay. They are:

1. Use a Nintendo 3DS Capture Card and a screen recorder.

EaseUS RecExperts is the most recommended screen recording software to record 3DS gameplay from Windows and Mac screens. It captures not only the screen image but the internal gaming audio. Download it from the button below.

The best thing about it is that it supports editing the recorded video to make a gaming highlight. After editing, you can save it to your computer in MP4, MOV, FLV, MKV, and AVI formats.

Steps to record 3DS gameplay:

  1. 1. Install the capture card to the 3DS game console and computer.
  2. 2. Launch the 3DS gameplay and open EaseUS RecExperts. Then, click on the "Game" button on the left.
  3. 3. Click on the "Select Game" option to choose the 3DS game Window. You can also enable the audio and webcam recording. Then, click "REC" to start recording.
  4. 4. Click the red square to stop recording. Then, you will be led to the recording list.

2.  Point a camera at the 3DS screen and record. The quality depends on the screen resolution.

3. Send your 3DS to a company to manually install a capture device into it. This could be costly.

4. Use a softmod. This is lower quality and uses some of the processing power of the 3DS.

5. Use a 3DS emulator. It is still immature.
