yuzu is an experimental open-source emulator for the Nintendo Switch from the creators of Citra.
It is written in C++ with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for Windows and Linux.
yuzu only emulates a subset of Switch hardware and therefore most commercial games do not run at full speed or are not fully functional.
Usage: Launch yuzu from your desktop app-launcher or run the command yuzu from the terminal. If you have already installed yuzu by
alternative means, use the command snap run yuzu. To launch yuzu-cmd, run the command snap run yuzu.yuzu-cmd.
Enable the relevant permissions. Yuzu folder location: $HOME/snap/yuzu/common/.local/share/yuzu

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
