“Yuzu”, the first Nintendo Switch emulator, appears

No commercial game is in progress at the moment

Yuzu is an emulator of Nintendo Switch under development. An open source code project licensed under the GPLv2 license, with versions available for Windows, Linux, and macOS.

The project was started in the spring of 2017 by Bunnei, one of the original authors of the popular Citra emulator for Nintendo 3DS. Due to the similarities between the Switch and the 3DS, Yuzu evolved as a bifurcation of the Citra. This means that the same architecture is used and both emulators benefit from the common enhancements. During the first months of development, the work was carried out privately, and progress was slow. Not surprisingly, when reverse design and homebrew development of Switch became popular, the work of yuzu also began to clear up, “Switch emulation is very complex” came to us on their website.

In January 2018, the yuzu team was formed by several Citra developers and the decision was made to launch the project publicly. As an emulator, yuzu is in bundles, y currently only useful for Switch reverse engineering and homebrew development.

Let us remember the possibility of crack the console is in the back corner with Team-Xecuter custom firmware. On the other hand, you can now enjoy some of the titles left on the Nintendo Switch, in its version for WiiUlike The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at 60 fps and 4K with the emulator CEMU in its new version 1.11.3.
