Hello, I'm making a game on Unity and I want to see how it works on the switch.

My switch is currently hacked so I can install NRO/NSP etc..
I've applied to become a Nintendo Developer but I'm not sure if I will get accepted or not.
My question is how can I export my game so it can work on then Nintendo Switch.
If someone could tell me the steps on how to export it as an NSP or NRO to my switch that would be greatly appreciated.
I've looked all over the place and can't find out how to do it.
My Switch is on firmware 13.2.1.

Thank you.

Seems to be very hard?
Did you head over to nintendo developer site and tried to sign up?

I know it's not unity but some sites offer the port of games for you! They help you to convert your game!

https://lonewolftechnology.com/ (Godot engine port)

https://pineapple.works/

And a really cool one is:

https://gotm.io (afaik it's free but if you make money they get money (better read the site))

Maybe that helps a bit!
Maybe there is also one for other engines that offers the "port" for you?

See the thread I linked above. If you're not an official developer for Switch, the only unofficial way is to pirate the dev kit software, and do a bunch of moderately complicated setup.
Thank you! I'm an official developer Switch and I have acces to the environment but no money for the dev kit hardware, does it change something?

If you have legit access to the software, including Switch export, then you can use it as per the official instructions. The export will be a dev-encrypted nsp, which you then have to decrypt and re-encrypt as a retail nsp, I'm pretty sure this step is discussed in the above thread. GLHF!
