Ryujinx emulator for Android

Ryujinx emulator Android


Ryujinx is an open-source Nintendo Switch emulator compatible with Android OS, created by gdkchan and written in Java.

This emulator aims at providing excellent accuracy and performance, a user-friendly interface, and consistent builds.

The name Ryujinx is based on the name “Ryujin.” In other words, a name for a Mythical (Sea-God) Dragon.

The name stems from Ryu (as already explained), then RyuJIT; which is the codename for the JIT compiler for .NET Core.

The NX part of the name is from the Codename of the Switch itself.

Most of the development happens on GitHub. It’s also where their central repository is hosted.

For the next update they plan to have support for basic framebuffer display working, it should take a fraction of the 2 months this version took.
