The Truth About PC Emulators & The Rumored Nintendo Switch Emulator

3 April 2017, 11:42 am EDT By Caezar Sotto Mobile & Apps

The Nintendo Switch has been the talk of the town since its release last month. Sadly, the guys in charge of producing the wondrous consoles can't keep up with the demand.

For the most part, gaming enthusiast would have to wait for new supplies or buy one from online scalpers. Which in any case is 100 percent more expensive than the versions sold at authorized game stores.

PC Emulators Have Been Around Since The PS1

With the Switch hard to find, some people are banking in the possibility of PC emulators. There have been a plethora of working emulators since the dawn of console generations.

According to the, there are actually 10 emulators to make the PC the ultimate gaming rig. Examples are PCSX2 for the Sony PS2 and Mupen64plus for the Nintendo 64.

Many frustrated gamers are optimistic of having a working Switch emulator. Surprisingly, there are some talks of an emulator for Nintendo's new console.

Nintendo Switch Emulator A Bust

Reportedly, a YouTube video created quite the chatter after it revealed the unthinkable... A working version of the Switch Emulator.

Seeing the video for the first time might have given fans a glimpse of hope. Most especially for PC gamers that would want to experience "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."

The video looks promising but it's another fake according to HotHardware. What's worse, its actually risks a user to inadvertently share private information. PC owners are precariously duped by fake surveys and promises of winning the Switch.

The YouTube video now has a total of 78,000 views since its upload on March 11, 2017. Aside from the video, there hasn't been any news of a working Nintendo Switch emulator. However, there is a big chance that the video came via a Wii U emu that already has a buggy version for the new "Zelda" game.

Whatever the case is, the only solution to this problem would be increased production units for the Nintendo Switch. There is a likely chance of having a working emulator soon, but it would take more than a week to crack the Switch's code. Stay tuned for updates.
