The Nintendo Switch emulator, RyujiNX, can already run some games

Earlier this month, we informed you about a very promising Nintendo Switch emulator, the RyujiNX. RyujiNX is a Nintendo Switch Emulator programmed in C#, aiming to offer good performance, a friendly interface, and consistent builds. And while last week the emulator could only boot some games, this week we have some videos showing it running and going in-game in two titles.

These two titles that currently run on RyujiNX are The Binding Of isaac and Cave Story+. As you will see, both of these games are unplayable due to the awful performance.

In other words, don’t expect to play Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Splatoon 2 or Super Mario Odyssey anytime soon. Still, this is a huge step towards emulating and running the Nintendo Switch games on RyujiNX.
