Since the launch of the Nintendo Switch as the most innovative and highly successful handheld console for the past three years, surely many gamers are starting to be interested in making it the most efficient gaming platform.
Not only is it interesting in portability aspect, because the Nintendo Switch has so far has many extraordinary exclusive titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey to Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Marketing that Nintendo has done so far is arguably very good, but it looks like their newest console is more vulnerable to piracy.
In addition to the recent news about pirated switch games using Yuzu emulators, recently there is another hacker who has successfully ran Xbox emulators on his system. So through the latest video uploaded by Voxel9, he demonstrated an XQEMU emulator that can operate smoothly on the Nintendo Switch.
XQEMU emulator demonstration
XQEMU is an open-source, cross-platform, low-level system emulator for the original Xbox and Sega Chihiro, built on the excellent QEMU project.
Not only can you access almost all the features that the emulator offers, it can also test in game performance in games like Halo: Combat Evolved and JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future. Both games can be run without errors or crashes, even though the performance is still not optimal. This is of course very understandable, because even though the Nintendo Switch is equipped with good hardware, the games that run through the emulator are very dependent on the emulation capabilities of the software.
