Successor to GBA4iOS, Delta emulator for iOS, has now entered beta stage, with application for sign ups now open to public. Here are the details.
Remember when we brought you the news that GBA4iOS developer Riley Testut had introduced a new multi-system emulator platform going by the name of Delta? Well, things have progressed since then. We now have more than just a teaser website showing the various platforms that the product will emulate, with Testut now in the process of looking for reliable beta testers to put Delta through its paces. GBA4iOS maybe officially dead, but Delta will step into the void that’s been left by offering emulation for multiple Nintendo systems in the first instance.
For those that may not know, Delta is an upcoming emulation experience for Apple’s iOS platform that has actually been actively worked on for a number of years now.
Long before GBA4iOS was actually officially pronounced as dead, Delta has been bubbling along nicely with Testut actively building the platform and the emulation experience from the ground up. And, more importantly, rather than simply emulating the Game Boy Advance experience, Delta will go a few steps further by offering support for Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 with additional consoles added periodically.
If you loved GBA4iOS, or the idea of being able to emulate and play with your favorite Nintendo games on your iPhone or iPad, then you most definitely will want to get yourself signed up for the Delta beta. Testut is breaking the beta down into two routes, with one for normal testers, and one for those involved in the press.
The only difference being that press testers will get more frequent builds than others in order to continuously write and create video content around the Delta experience. It’s actually a great idea from Testut to get continual coverage for what is likely to be an extremely popular piece of software when it launches.
If you are interested, then you can simply head on over to this Google Docs document here and provide your details, as long as you have an Apple device running iOS 10 or higher and access to an Apple ID to receive TestFlight builds. Applications for testers will run from now until December 16th, with approved testers announced on or around December 19th. Perfect timing to have GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 running on your iPad in time for Christmas.
