Developer Manages to Emulate Nintendo Switch Games on an M1 Mac

Developer Manages to Emulate Nintendo Switch Games on an M1 Mac

A developer going by the moniker of “Sera Tonin Brocious” on Twitter has successfully managed to emulate Nintendo Switch games on Apple Silicon. The developer proved this by running Super Mario Odyssey on an M1 Mac.

“I’m so fu**ing proud of this. It only gets a few frames into the game before it hits the first MoltenVK limitation, but damn,” tweeted Sera Tonin Brocious.

The 8-Bit reports the developer was able to achieve this feat with the open-source Yuzu emulator, which uses Vulkan, a high-performance 3D graphics API. MoltenVKΒ is a runtime library that maps Vulkan to Apple’s Metal graphics framework on macOS and iOS.

The developer’s screenshots show Super Mario Odyssey running on a 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 chip running under macOS 11.0.1. The processors in the Nintendo Switch and M1 Macs are both based on ARM architecture.


The developer says the “big hurdle” is proper Metal support, noting that the current MoltenVK implementation results in “middling performance.”

While there are no instructions available for the public to try this out, it’s an exciting development for emulation fans everywhere.

  3. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with

    experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
