Nintendo Switch was released in March, 2017. An emulator for the console is now in the works by the team that brought us Citra - the 3DS emulator. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is already playable on PC, since it wasn't a Switch exclusive.

Nintendo Switch is getting a shiny new emulator. Yuzu is coming courtesy of the team behind the 3DS emulator Citra. This news comes no less than 10 months after Nintendo's console launched.

"If you get 30 now you will get half speed 30 with this “mod”. At the moment this is really only valid for use in shrines since physics are now set to be full speed at 60 fps." says epigramx' Reddit post.

"The reason I held off releasing this is because this pack should really just be considered a proof of concept. It was only a hasty altering of one line of code so that I could get a few other eyes on it and make sure I wasn't convincing myself of something that wasn't real."

User Epigramx copied Xalphenos' post from the Cemu Discord channel. The bad news was that the Cemu emulator and Zelda were so demanding, no system could really run BotW at a full 60 fps. The good news? A fairly simple hack appeared to bypass Breath of the Wild's 30 fps lock without causing any messy conflicts.

And now we wait.
