    Barely a year old and we’ve gotten a working emulator already? Wow

      It’s a nearly stock tegra system. It’ll be one of the easiest to emulate, really.

      Not really. Try Zelda and it wont work on this emulator at least for 5 or 6 years later. I am not excite yet anyway.

        It will be easy to Emulate. Its a Stock Standard ARM System. There are already good working ARM Emulators out there. So the Hardware Part of the Emulation is something that is already working. They just need to Emulate the Software Subset to run the Games.

    “This is still a very cool milestone for an emulator that targets a console from the latest generation! Can’t wait to see what comes next."

    I don’t know if Nintendo can come at them in any type of legal way, if they can what will “come next" would probably be some type of C&D. We’ll see what happens. To the people working on this project, keep up the amazing work.

      I don’t think Nintendo has any ability to take legal action. The emulator (Probably) is not bundled with any element of the Switch what-so-ever. It simply emulates the hardware.

      That’s similar to Microsoft suing VirtualBox because people use it to run pirated Windows or something.

    Thank goodness Nintendo used an exotic memory chip for games, it sure slowed piracy alright and was well worth the premium and hamstringing of devs.

    Thank god. Nintendo is a horrible company and they deserve to have all of their games emulatable as soon as possible. Karma’s a *** Ninty, and this is what you get for your DMCA abuse.
