The Panasonic 3do Real Multiplayer was a Home Video Game Console developed by the 3do company in 1994. Its humongous price tag of $700 and oversaturation in the video game market at the time meant it was a commercial failure.

Emulator: lr-opera (formerly known as lr-4do).

lr-opera is experimental, and even with an overclocked RPi3B+ it is slow so it isn't recommended for Raspberry Pi users at this time.

With the Odroid-XU4, performance has increased and made many games playable as of July 2018 when development was taken over by a newer developer. CPU threading being added for the CPU/GPU found in the XU4 continues to increase performance as of September 2018.
