A powerful Nintendo Switch emulator for Windows

Remove ads and more with Turbo

Yuzu is a Nintendo Switch emulator for Windows, developed by the creators of Citra (the most popular Nintendo 3DS emulator). This emulator is written in C++ so it's easy to use on various operating systems. Plus, it's open source.

The recommended requirements are a bit demanding: an Intel Core i5-8600K processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card. These specifications are recommended for playing 3D games without any lag. The minimum requirements, on the other hand, are more than enough for 2D games: Intel Core i3-6100 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030.
