    What will be the latest Console Emulator working on Switch?

    NES up to N64 will work fine on the switch.
    But do you guys think a 3DS,Gamecube,Wii and the Wii U Emulator will work on the Switch?
    What is possible with the Switch?

    Maybe GC/Wii and 3DS. Probably GC/Wii first as that's far more complete, 3DS emulation is still young.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    PS2/GCN, 3DS, etc. Very easily, I'm sure.

    Gamecube: I'm not sure but apparently Nintendo will get virtual console on it so....
    3DS: not sure, may be slow, but doable
    Wii: I THINK (checking the hardware -> maybe)
    Wii U: Not sure (checking the hardware -> maybe)

    (correct me if I'm wrong)

    witht he hardware, Switch would be MORE than capable of running 3DS via emulator. The GCN is way storenger than the 3DS - the Nvidia sheild could emulate gcn well, and so the switch could do it very well, with the 'nintendo magic'. And if GCN can be emulated, 3DS sure as hell can.

    Most likely the same that work on Nvidia shield TV I would guess.

    WII&GC/DC/Saturn/PSX/N64/mame/CPS1-3/FBA etc..

    3DS, never.
    Wii U, never.
    Wii, never.
    GC, perhaps.

    Whatever. The 3DS needs far more resources than the GC to be emulated.

    That sentences doesn't make sense. Try again. It should be easily doable.

    Wii should be fairly doable, at least for most games. It's just an overclocked GCN, put in laymen's terms.
    Wii U could easily emulate DS. DS isn't very hard to emulate.


    Hloly shiit, these people don't know anything about this stuff. Crhist.

    Citra needs as many resources as CemU to be ran, while my craptop already runs GC games at 60fps. I tried Citra, verdict, less than 10fps.

    That means literally nothing. Oh my god...

    That's like saying Daedalus on my PSP runs worse than SNES on my Laptop.

    "DS isn't very hard to emulate" No. It's just that Wii U's hachihachi "emulator" is a hacky, whacky, bad inaccurate emulator.

    There is a slight chance Nintendo may add GC or 3DS VC and we hijack that, other than that I really don't see anything more powerful than dreamcast being emulated.

    What? It's a known fact that 3DS is very hard to emulate. It currently even needs more resources than emulating Wii U. If I test two emulators on the same PC that means nothing? Please.

    what do you even mean by "resources"? I'm convinced you don't even know what you're talking about in ANY respect. That makes zero sense.

    The 3DS should be LEAGUES easier to emulate than the Wii U. Just because the Wii U emulator on the PC could (havent tried it) run better than the 3DS one on the PC means aboslutley NOTHING. Different teams working on it, different levels of "work done", etc.


    You sound ridiculously dumb right now with your assumptions. You don't know anything about this stuff, please don't post again. It'll just mislead others. with misinformation.

    I mean, you dont either The switch isnt hacked. So no one knows what will run on it. Makes me laugh to see these threads.
