Ryujinx emulator for Mac OS
Ryujinx is an open-source Nintendo Switch emulator for Mac OS created by gdkchan and written in C#.
The name Ryujinx is based on the name “Ryujin.” In other words, a name for a Mythical (Sea-God) Dragon.
The name stems from Ryu (as already explained), then RyuJIT; which is the codename for the JIT compiler for Net Core.
The NX part of the name is from the Codename of the Switch itself.
Ryujinx is capable of booting past menus to in-game on over 1,000 commercial titles, roughly half of which are considered playable.
This emulator aims at providing excellent accuracy and performance, a user-friendly interface, and consistent builds.
