That new N64 pad that was on Kickstarter last year is out. Everyone's 2nd favourite Youtuber has taken a look at it:

I understand the complaint about the L button, but let’s be serious here. The L button is completely inaccessible on the original controller. Not being able to properly use it on this controller shouldn’t have any affect on nearly anything you play.

It's only for the Nvidia Shield in China, so about 10 people have access to it.

How do they get around the required motion controls? It appears the IR sensor is just replaced by the right analog, but I’m curious how it handles motion.

If it's like Dolphin, you can map a button to a motion gesture for the shake motion.

If this gets into the hands of hackers, I hope someone can come create a Segagen-type emulator. The Shield can run Dolphin, but the results are mixed.

So I was wrong, it’s simpler than that. Apparently the Shield has a gyroscope built-in. So it doesn’t need to do anything fancy to accommodate.

Two Nintendo Switch emulators are already able to boot games

Since the Nintendo Switch first launched, there have been plenty of software tinkerers trying to figure out how to modify the system. Hackers were able to poke around the inner workings of the Switch just one week after release. Since then, some have managed to get Linux up and running on the console, while others have been working on emulation. Two emulators in particular are starting to show promise, as they are already able to boot commercial games.

There are two Nintendo Switch emulators currently in the works, one known as RyujiNX and another known as Yuzu. At this point in time, both are able to boot three games: The Binding of Isaac, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Cave Story+. The games don’t run particularly well just yet, but this is a good start.


As the developers behind the Yuzu emulator explain, even getting to the point of booting Switch games hasn’t been easy. They described it as “a massive reverse-engineering challenge”. It took the developers behind the Dolphin emulator several years to be able to boot Wii games, so progress on Switch emulators is going at a much faster rate.

The next challenge for the developers behind RyujiNX and Yuzu is getting more games to run. Beyond that, they want to get games to the point where they are rendering frames properly, but emulating the Maxwell GPU inside of the Switch is proving to be challenging.

KitGuru Says: Given how popular the Nintendo Switch is, there is going to be plenty of interest in emulation. The fact that games can already be booted up is an impressive feat just one year after the system’s launch. That said, I’m sure Nintendo are keeping an eye on this.

It looks like Binding of Issac running on a ZX Spectrum.
