Greetings friends! The renowned Nintendo Switch PC emulator is finally available for Android. Its PC version is characterized by having spectacular performance. In addition to having constant development. The requirements needed to run it have been improving over the years. It currently has good compatibility with much of the Nintendo Switch catalog. The Yuzu team has decided to launch a version for Android that is already available on Google Play. In this post, we will show you how to install the Yuzu emulator on Android.
What are the requirements to use Yuzu on Android?
Next, we will see one of the most interesting parts of this post. Knowing what hardware is required to run Yuzu on your phone. The emulator still tends to consume a lot of resources. So the more resources you have, the better the performance. Although with a phone with the following specifications it should be able to run without problems:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor or higher.
- Adreno 600 or higher graphics chip (preferably Adreno 700).
- A minimum of 8 GB of RAM.
Although at least a mid-range phone is needed to run the emulator correctly, it may soon be able to run on more modest devices. As long as the Yuzu team manages to optimize the emulator and thus decrease the excessive use of resources. If you have one of these devices you can always try touching some settings such as lowering the graphics quality.
Yuzu performance on Android
It is important to take into account that the version presented for Android devices is not at the same level of development as the PC variant. Because it lacks some features such as local multiplayer. However, that does not call into question its fantastic performance and the fact that it allows you to run many games at 30 or 60 fps. Even so, the Yuzu team communicated that this first version should be considered beta. As time goes by, the code will be polished, performance will be optimized, requirements will be lowered and compatibility will be extended.
