Yuzu Nintendo Switch Emulator Lives On With The Nuzu, Suyu Projects

The development of the Yuzu was permanently halted, but the popular Nintendo Switch emulator will continue to live on thanks to multiple projects that were recently launched.

The Nuzu and the aptly-named Suyu projects are both open-source works based on the latest version of Yuzu, they do not support piracy in any capacity and are currently looking for developers, so they currently do not offer anything past what the popular emulator they are based on does. Still, this shows how the emulation community is unwilling to back down.

As mentioned above, the development of the Yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator was discontinued yesterday, as developer Tropic Haze settled the lawsuit with Nintendo, agreeing to pay the Japanese company $2.4 million in damages. You can find an excerpt of the message shared by the development team below.

Yuzu and its team have always been against piracy. We started the projects in good faith, out of passion for Nintendo and its consoles and games, and were not intending to cause harm. But we see now that because our projects can circumvent Nintendo’s technological protection measures and allow users to play games outside of authorized hardware, they have led to extensive piracy. In particular, we have been deeply disappointed when users have used our software to leak game content prior to its release and ruin the experience for legitimate purchasers and fans.9056
