Yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator Android

Yuzu emulator for Android

Uploaded byD3vik


Yuzu emulator for Android is an experimental open-source project for the Nintendo Switch from the creators of Citra.

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

The Yuzu emulator for Android is made by the developers of the Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra, with significant code shared between the projects.

Originally, Yuzu only supported test programs and homebrew, but as of July 2022, a handful of games work without issue.


Yuzu for Android OS only emulates a subset of Switch hardware and therefore most commercial games do not run at full speed or are not fully functional.

Yuzu uses a network service called Boxcat as a replacement for Nintendo’s BCAT dynamic content network.

It also offers a resolution rescaling feature that simulates docked, undocked and beyond-native resolutions.

The Yuzu development team announced an update that included experimental features, and beta program is now open; get it on the link below.

It is licensed under the GPLv2 (or any later version); refer to the license.txt file included.
