Last update: Do not use emulators anymore unless you don't have any better options

Go to here instead for PC Edition!

Due to version 3.3.1 and forward miHoYo can't upload x86 libs to Google Play anymore, this resulting heavy CPU hungry and may crash at anytime on all Android emulators as game libraries have to go through ARM translation. Attempting to disable "Enable native bridge" in Apps compability will result instant app crash as there is no x86 libs anymore. Performance issue and solution

Android Emulator

If you want to play Houkai 3rd at maxed settings 60 fps then playing on emulator should be a better choice than playing on mobile devices. Ultra Resolution

System Requirements

CPU: 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with 2 CPU cores or more (4 cores recommended)

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7730 / Nvidia Geforce GT 740 or higher (Not support for Intel GPU as they are too buggy)


Memory: having at least 4GB free space (both emulator + game)

Hardware virtualization: AMD-V or Intel VT-x must be enabled in BIOS settings

Android Emulator

The game now require at least Android 5.0 so emus lower than that can't install the game. We highly recommend Mumu 2.x as they have best performance. If you can't use Mumu then you can use BlueStacks instead.

We don't recommend TGB, LDPlayer, Nox Player and Memuplay as those have very bad performance and may cause rendering issues, not suitable for playing HI3.

MuMu 1.16.3 (Android 4.4): Official link  or Google Drive

MuMu 2.x (Android 6.0): test  or offline installers (3rd party website, use at own risk)

BlueStacks 4 (Android 7.1): Official website

Mumu and BlueStacks does have native controller mapping support but not connecting controller to Android system.

If Android emus doesn't detect controller, you can use Steam to trick the emu to detect controllers.
