Skyline, an open-source, experimental and work-in-progress Nintendo Switch emulator that runs on ARMv8 Android devices, has successfully booted its first commercial game.

Using some temporary hacks, the team managed to get Sonic Mania up and running with working on-screen controls, as shown in the screenshot below.

Please note that the above mentioned build is currently private and not yet available to the public. The team have stated that once the necessary hacks that were temporarily added in order for the game to boot are correctly implemented into the Skyline emulator, that the build will be publicly available on the projects Github page which is linked below.

The one SONIC game that should've been released on Android finally is.. sort of. :)

Great news.

Still, I'm still waiting for SONIC 1 & 2 Remake to be released on Consoles and PC after all these years.

This is great. Pretty soon no one will want handhelds anymore, all they need is their phone…
And there's a great reason to own a high-end phone. I always wondered wtf people would do with a high-end phone when the apps most use are Chrome, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, and YouTube.
