Switch Emulator Project for Android

Uploaded byD3vik


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 C++ 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 PlayStation or Microsoft’s Xbox.


This 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.
