Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee Is Now Playable On PC With Yuzu Nintendo Switch Emulator
Nintendo Switch emulation seems to be faring well and it is progressing at a rapid pace. The most recent April update to the emulator has fixed the soft-lock issue in some games also making games like Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee playable on the emulator.
Nintendo has bad luck when it comes to emulation. Nintendo Wii U was easily emulated during its end of life leading to games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being emulated on PC at a higher resolution, frame rate, and even with modded game files to play as other characters.
Nintendo Switch has its own emulator called Yuzu. This emulator is also progressing at a faster pace and some games are now playable on it from start to end. This also includes one of the exclusives, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. You will still need a save file to run the game past the opening but after that, there are no major reported issues.
When Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee were first seen running on the emulator, they had certain graphical glitches thus making them unplayable. Later, soft-locks prevented users from finishing the game, but now a workaround has been released with the new update resolving any of the major issues. A proper fix will be later deployed that should be available to everyone as well.
