This wrapper makes mGBA API compatible with libretro, thus allowing its use
with libretro frontends, such as RetroArch.
mGBA is a new emulator for running Game Boy Advance games. It aims to be faster
and more accurate than many existing Game Boy Advance emulators, as well as
adding features that other emulators lack.
