    In a competitive scene with softmods, modchips, homebrew, and other assorted upcoming releases, the team behind Yuzu, the Nintendo Switch emulator, has also made some significant progress, as well. A video was uploaded by the Yuzu devs on YouTube, showcasing Cave Story booting up, and even getting past the title screen. After the cutscene plays, the emulation hangs and does not go further. After that, they show The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, which actually manages to boot into a playable segment, which can crash at random. Puyo Puyo Tetris manages to emulate the SEGA logo, but crashes shortly thereafter. All of these games have major graphical issues, but they actually boot, and even run, albeit at very slow speeds.

    The development team states that with this milestone achieved, they plan to get more games booting on the emulator, while also attempting to emulate the Switch's GPU. You can check out their official post on their site, linked in the source below. The Switch scene gets excited with every day that passes! What are your thoughts on this emulator and its progress?

    beautifully inaccurate, but beautiful nonetheless

    And from that moment, the Switch Emulation scene was born.

    A little surprised at how fast this scene is maturing, but then again, it IS one of the most successful gaming systems in history...

    I thought this would at least take like four years, how is the scene moving so quick?

    The Wii U was like 2 1/2 years in, if I remember correctly. And nobody believed that Cemu was legit because it came out of fucking nowhere

    Wow, the progress is insane! I can't wait for them to figure out the Tegra API enough to get 3D rendering functional.

    Standardish hardware which is very well documented and had been available in the Nvidia shield TV for some time. The ground work doesn't have to start from complete zero as in many other generations (SNES being horrible for custom chips in game carts themselves, etc).

    While a big part of the switch is the portability, I wouldn't mind a working emulator for futureproofing the hardware itself

    DS and WII are the most successful consols in history, no one will ever replace them
