SwitchDroid emulator for Android

DeveloperSD project
Uploaded byD3vik


SwitchDROID emulator for Android capable of emulating on Android all the Nintendo Switch video console games with great results in terms of graphics and playability.

Please be wary of the emulator’s limitations. SwitchDroid can be emulated as its architecture is very similiar to the one of a mobile phone.

Still, the games are quite demanding, speed and compatibility depends on many aspects of your device.


This emulator offers us the chance to control all the games from our touchscreen but it’s also compatible with external gamepads, therefore, the user experience is quite similar to what Switch is capable of offering us.

Furthermore, the good thing about this application is that other than Switch, it’s also capable of emulating other older video consoles such as the Nintendo 64, 3DS or NES.

No games are included in this app and you need to obtain yours in a legal way.

Place them onto your SD card, and browse to them from within the app.

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.

The last version implements the following new features:

•Reduced the usage of memory and optimize the game performance of low RAM devices

•Fixed the problem of abnormal UI display

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.
