    Those who enjoy emulation on their Nintendo Switch now have something new to play around with, thanks to the recent port of the Sega Saturn emulator Yaba Sanshiro to the platform. Emulation of the Sega Saturn has always been tricky, and while performance can vary wildly, this open-source emulator manages to boot a good number of titles, including Sonic R, Burning Rangers, Nights into Dreams, and Die Hard: Arcade, with some in a very playable state. This emulator is a standalone version, based on Lakka, and requires specific instructions, which can be seen below. As this is still an early development project, there are a few issues, such as Joy-Con desyncing, volume being unable to be changed, and sleep mode not working correctly.
