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.
Even though Switch's biggest game - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - is already playable with an emulator, there is a lot of cool games that are Switch exclusive. Based on the team's previous work, there's little doubt this emulator will fail to meet our expectations.
Announcing yuzu, the first Nintendo Switch emulator that does all of the things you didn't need it to do! Stay tuned for more from the yuzu team!— yuzu (@yuzuemu) January 14, 2018
"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.
