As you know, Nintendo has done the impossible to ban the emulators of its games, which are used to run them on other platforms such as PCs or mobile devices, using legal measures to remove them. This is why the new bet by the developers of the Yuzu emulator, which has been used by millions of users to play Nintendo Switch titles on PC, has been seen as a serious provocation to the Big N.
This since the emulator has been transferred to Android, with a first version on this mobile operating system, which comes as an option to Skyline, which is considered the best Nintendo Switch emulator for Android. And apparently, its performance on smartphones has surprised many users, thinking that Nintendo Switch emulation on android is somewhat complicated.

As reported by El Chapuzas Informático, its performance in games such as The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, reaches 60 FPS on both a Samsung S20 and S23, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 60 FPS but only with the S23, since the S20 maxes out at 45 FPS. It is also reported that games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons reach 30 FPS on terminals with a Snapdragon 865 CPU, but on the other hand, more “recent” games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild only reach 20 SPF.
This thanks to some performance tests in which these two Samsung phones have been used, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G (Snapdragon 865) and the Galaxy S23 (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2).
Yuzu for Android is officially available on Google Play and it must be taken into account that it works on some smartphones, since its requirements are fairly demanding, which are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 8 GB of RAM and Android 11.
