Nintendo Switch emulator: Yuzu now loads a handful of commercial games
The open source Nintendo Switch emulator is making significant progress, and the developers announced today that Yuzu can now run a few commercial titles. This is the first step in supporting a broader list of games moving forward.
The titles that have been confirmed to boot so far are:
- The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+
- Puyo Puyo Tetris
- Cave Story+
Note that the games “boot” and there’s no guarantee at this point that they are in a very playable state. Specifically, the developers say:
Right now, most games won’t run, and the games that do run will run incredibly slow and only get so far before encountering issues.
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.
The team says their next steps are to boot more games, and try to emulate the GPU in order to improve speed and rendering accuracy.
