Nintendo Switch Emulator

Yuzu is a Nintendo Switch Emulator for Windows

The Yuzu is a closed source Nintendo Switch emulator for Windows.
Nintendo Switch is a mix between a handheld and home console. Yuzu uses the same resolution 1280x720 as the console version but can be adjusted.

This site only contains the emulator and not the games required.

Its hard to give exact cpu/ram specifications because all games run different.

Also when installing make sure you install everything(Add-ons/Plug-ins) Or the emulator might not work.


Yuzu allows you to run homebrew games(and some commercially released games) on the Nintendo Switch console.

You will need to get a bios dump of the Switch, which we cannot bundele together with the emulator right now for legal reseasons. You can find the file(s) here.

This Nintendo Switch Emulator (Yuzu) started development in early 2017
