I can't link two games using citra

Hi. I was playing Yo-kai watch 2 psychic specters until yesterday when I started playing Yo-kai watch 3. I’ve got the 3 ROMS for all versions of YKW2 (Bony Spirits, Fleshy Souls and Psychic Specters) and tried to link those three versions to my YKW3 rom since its possible and if I do so, I’ll get special objects and characters. The issue is when I try linking those versions (the saving data should be stored in the SD card on a physical 3DS), I get the message ‘unable to find linking data from yo-kai watch 2’.


I basically only have to play one of these games and save the game (following screenshot) but my YKW3 game still can’t find any saving/linking data from YKW2 games. Can anyone help? I don’t really know where the issue is.

This currently isn’t possible in Citra. You’d have to do this on the 3DS, and then transfer the save data to Citra using Checkpoint.
