Yuzu is a totally free open-source Nintendo Switch emulator made by Citra Team, the same group of programmers that made Citra, the Nintendo 3DS emulator written about previously. The 2 emulators share a good deal of similarity in their code. It's formally available on 64-bit Windows 7 and over, as well as 64-bit Linux hardware. 8 gigabytes of RAM is the bare minimum, although 16 gigabytes is suggested. MacOS isn't currently supported, however, as of April 2020, compatibility for your hardware has been developed; it is not currently known when this will be implemented. Yuzu is regarded as user-friendly. To play the numerous playable games legally, you must dump them from your own Nintendo switch. DLC and game upgrades can be set up, and this can be known to be a very straightforward process. In terms of connecting controllers for usage, you will need to change a few configurations, although the specifics depend on what game you are playing, in addition to your own hardware. Using a mouse and keyboard works for games, and you can specifically set up your mouse and keyboard for certain actions.

One characteristic that Yuzu has is quite similar to a Citra has (which was written about previously). You may select whether you'd like to install the Yuzu Nightly version or the Yuzu Canary variant. Yuzu Nightly is a much more stable version of Yuzu that will be easier for you to use and play games with, but it doesn't have some features you might want available. The Yuzu Canary version, by comparison, might not be as steady as Nightly, but contains some features Nightly does not have available. Much like in Citra, these features are sometimes experimental; they may be eventually put into Yuzu Nightly, other times they are left exclusively in Yuzu Canary, or, sometimes, removed completely from any sort of accessible Yuzu software. Other times they're just features that only work with lower performance (Or brings the game's functionality down), which explains why they would be exclusive to the less steady variant (Yuzu Canary).
