# RetroArch RetroArch is the reference frontend for the libretro API. Popular examples of implementations for this API includes videogame system emulators and game engines, but also more generalized 3D programs. These programs are instantiated as dynamic libraries. We refer to these as "libretro cores". ## Cores and Assets This build does not include any of the libretro cores or base assets. These can easily be downloaded via the RetroArch interface once installed. ## Changelog See the latest []( for RetroArch. ## Source See the [RetroArch GitHub page](
