I don't get it. If you need to spend $100 for the controller, why not just spend the extra $100/$200 to get an actual Switch, which will obviously have 100% compatibility with all Switch games? Who exactly is this targeted at? People with $500 to $1000 phones who can't afford the extra $100 for a Switch Lite?
Its marketed towards people that will pay $100 and basically get a controller and a switch made from a phone they already have. They can easily pirate the rest.
Nintendo shutting this down in 3, 2, 1...
Good luck on that if its based in china. There copyright isnt enforced to hard if im not mistaken.

This 1 specific 100 dollars gamepad ? That's scary and ridiculous. SMH.
What if the dev for this emulator is also the manufacturer of the controller.

Not sure why everyone keeps saying it is made by China. The website clearly says this emulator was developed in USA.
Developed in USA, made in China perhaps. The article, the “sharing” but at the end. Why is it in Chinese? Really, it doesn’t matter where it was “developed”.

It seems clear the controller company is at least paying the developers. The emulator seems to take the code from Yuzu.

If it's legit (I mean if it really runs games) and it used yuzu code does this mean the yuzu team can make their own Android app and games will run on Snapdragon 855 and higher phones without any gamepads? Citra for Android happened a while ago and yuzu for Android would be overkill hehe. Not really surprised to see it run so fast because Switch is not very demanding and yuzu already runs fine, also Switch and Android phones have similar hardware so this could help.

Hopefully it's not a Snapdragon 855+ only thing and we can run games on cheaper Snapdragon phones like Citra can despite being so new. Some 855 and 865 phones can be found at 400$ range so this is a good thing too if you don't want to spend 1k on a phone and you get 3DS, Wii, GameCube, PSP, Dreamcast and the list goes on, including potential future Switch emulation (without gamepad requirements lol)

The question should be can Android phones emulate Wii U so we can have every Nintendo console on the go finally! Cemu Android when?

I liked your post but let me throw that in:
The Switch market in China is very limited with also just a limited amount of games. I see that there might be a demand for a way to pirate (all kind of) Switch games and use them on a phone that many chinese kids have anyway.
