Switch Emulator Project for Android



Switch Emulator Project is a Nintendo Switch emulator for Android OS.

It’s a video console for mobile devices with which you can run all its games on your smartphone or tablet.

It is written in Java with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for Windows, Linux, Android OS, MacOS and iOS.


Just like the rest of machines released by the Japanese company, the Nintendo Switch video console has been an enormous hit in a very specific gaming field where users feel more prone towards the entertainment system offered by Nintendo than towards Sony’s Play Station or Microsoft’s Xbox.

This Nintendo Switch emulator works by running the ISO files (which obviously aren’t offered in the app) that we’ll have to download to our SD card.

It offers us the following functions:

  • Fast video game emulation
  • Compatible with almost all games
  • Emulate games on other devices through cable or a WiFi or Bluetooth connection
  • Supports cheats and codes
  • Compatible with external gamepads
  • Possibility to skip through long story sequences
  • Create keyboard shortcuts to quickly access your favorite games

It is licensed under the GPLv2 (or any later version).

Refer to the license.txt file included.

The installation of the app by means of the APK file requires the activation of the “Unknown sources” option within Settings>Applications.

The table lists the minimum system requirements for running Switch emulator Project Android

It is still possible to install the app on devices not mentioned above, but we cannot guarantee its proper functioning.

We recommend backing up the device on which the app will be installed before performing any installation of third-party apps not from the official app Store.


There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the link below.

The last version implements the following new features:

•New graphic user interface on beta version release

•Bugfixes and performance improvements for Android 6.0 (or higher)

•Add compatibility with only accelerometer and auto calibrate for drift for Android 6.0+

•Remove unnecessary system argument to CheatParser’s Parse function

•Fix modifier scale button mapping (in beta version only)

This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.

You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the APK file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.

All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
