Skyline is the very first Nintendo Switch emulator available on Android. And the least we can say is that his debut is very promising. At present, the application is able to run the Celestial game correctly, and initial tests are underway to bring Super Mario Odyssey to smartphones.

Whether Nintendo likes it or not, Nintendo Switch emulation has never been as efficient. Today, it is possible to play console games in 8K on your PC, so the latter does not exceed 720p. Suffice to say that the Japanese firm has reason to be worried, especially as emulators are becoming more and more numerous. On PC, we already have Yuzu or Ryujinx. But a newcomer could well drive the point home a little more on Android.

You read correctly. You can now play your Nintendo Switch games on your Android smartphone — provided it is relatively powerful. This thanks to Skyline, a brand new emulator that is particularly promising. It is no coincidence that Skyline is so efficient. Indeed, the application uses the architecture of Yuzu and Ryujinxand even received help from their respective developers.

Still, the performance is impressive and should be of interest to many just for that. At the moment, Skyline is able to run correctly Sonic Mania and Celeste.
