Magiskate, also named MagiSK8, is a homebrew originally created as a college project. The game is created to further improve and add new features to the author's game engine MEngine, which was ported from PC/Android to 3DS using libctru and the Citro3D graphics library.

MagiSK8 was heavily inspired by Jet Set Radio, which is evident in the gameplay and controls. It is in early development stage with some missing features.

Installation

Simply place the .3dsx wherever you store your homebrew and launch it from the Homebrew Channel.

The game will create a folder in that directory where it stores the configuration file.

Also, make sure your DSP is dumped, otherwise audio will not work.

User guide

In this game, you can currently freely skate around some areas or take on some challenges.

The multiplayer option has not yet been implemented.

Magiskate 3DS Build (v1.0) - Gameplay Demonstration (iMackshunGames)

Compatibility

Tested on Citra. Recommend N3DS for best performance, playable on O3DS but performance isn't great.

Known issues

  • Sometimes a rail won't be detected, and you will land on it as if it were plain ground.
  • Audio lags a bit on the O3DS. Completely fine on the N3DS.
  • The game may seem like it is freezing when it is performing IO operations. This occurs between screens, or when you switch characters.
  • The city area, among other aspects of the game, is poorly optimized. Wouldn't recommend.
