Super Mario Odyssey and other games can go in-game in the latest version of the Nintendo Switch emulator, Yuzu

While these past few months we’ve been focusing on the RyujiNX Nintendo Switch emulator, the other amazing emulator for Nintendo’s console, Yuzu, has been also progressing steadily. And today, we are happy to report that numerous games, including Super Mario Odyssey, can go in-game in Yuzu.

Now this does not obviously mean that the emulator will run Super Mario Odyssey tomorrow on in the next couple months. It’s a miracle that the game can go in-game at this point, so don’t expect to be playing this triple-A Nintendo game anytime soon.

As you will immediately, games like Super Mario Odyssey, The Longest 5 Minutes, Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle, Ace of Seafood and R.B.I. Baseball 17 perform poorly and are full of visual artifacts and glitches. These games will most probably won’t be playable soon, though it’s pretty cool witnessing Yuzu actually running them.

On the other hand, games like Antiquia Lost, Bleed 2, One Piece: Unlimited World Red DE and 88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition are almost playable. Future versions will most probably address the remaining graphical glitches and improve performance, and I believe that these games will be fully playable by the end of 2018.
