Yuzu, the world’s first Nintendo Switch emulator, has successfully booted up Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and ARMS for the very first time.
While this is a major milestone for the developers behind Yuzu, there’s still a long way to go before getting the games to run properly on the emulator. At the time of writing, the emulator does not display art assets properly and could only run those games at best 5 frames per second. It could be at least 5 years before we start to see Yuzu running at optimal performance.
Check out the proof of concept screenshots and footage below.
