Yuzu Switch Emulator Overview
Yuzu is an experimental, open-source emulator for the Nintendo Switch. It does not run commercial games yet but will eventually be capable of doing so. The name “Yuzu” was chosen because yuzu is small, tart citrus fruit, which is the primary ingredient in an Shōchū Liqueur called Sukan, commonly made in Osaka and Kyoto, where the Yuzu hails from. Yuzu is said to be faster and more accurate than Citra Emulator and runs games like Super Smash Brothers on PC. You can download the program here.
The Yuzu project aims to be the first Nintendo Switch Emulator running commercial games. It is written in C++ and uses the OpenGL API as well as the SDL cross-platform library. Currently, it can run some simple homebrew games and most of the video demos from the “NintenDomination” YouTube channel. You can even play such games as Super Mario Odyssey, Catherine: Full Body, A Hat in Time, Dragon Quest XI, Bravely Default II, Dark Souls, Xenoblade Chronicles, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, World of Final Fantasy, Crash Bandicoot 4, Pokemon Let’s Go, Mario and Rabbids, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on your PC.
Yuzu is an experiment looking to prove that a development environment for the Switch can be free and open-source. It aims to explore the Switch’s inner workings, peek at what’s happening on the screen, and even inject custom code into games to change how they behave.
