yuzu is an experimental open-source emulator for the Nintendo Switch from the creators of Citra. It is written in C++ with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for Windows and Linux.

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

Usage: Launch yuzu from your desktop app-launcher or run the command yuzu from the terminal. If you have already installed yuzu by alternative means, use the command snap run yuzu. To launch yuzu-cmd, run the command snap run yuzu.yuzu-cmd. Enable the relevant permissions.
