Yuzu is an experimental open-source emulator for the Nintendo Switch from the creators of Citra. It is written in C++ with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for Windows and Linux.

Resolution Scaler is a new yuzu feature, which scales the dimensions of textures that Switch games render to, and then renders the games at the scaled resolution. This allows games that were designed to render at lower resolutions (720p/900p/1080p), to go far beyond what was intended and be played at much higher resolutions (2K/4K/8K) in the same window!
