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
This snap is not necessarily endorsed or officially maintained by the upstream developers.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install yuzu, simply use the following command:
