If you’re talking about Virtual Console GBA, it isn’t supported, since it requires a New 3DS.

You can try running the game through mGBA, but that is not guaranteed to work (emulator on a emulator) and there will be no sound.

Thanks for the early reply.
Sorry to ask, but could you explain a little bit more?
What do you mean by it requires a New 3DS?

You’re thinking of SNES VC, GBA VC was only available on ambassador 3DSs, the reason it doesn’t work in Citra, is that Citra doesn’t emulate the 3DS’s ARM7 core where GBA games run natively

He’s a little off, the GBA VC runs on the 3DS’s ARM7 core which Citra doesn’t emulate, so if course it doesn’t work. I’m not sure if there’s a tool that lets you extract GBA VC ROMs so you can run it on an actual GBA emulator.

I see. Thanks for the answer.
Guess I will have to find GBA Rom then. I used to play long time ago and just wanted to play again.
