    Retroarch 1.7.1 works on Switch



    Retroarch 1.7.1 offers Switch support based on libtransistor SDK. The Retroarch team says they should be closer to a Switch release by the time they release Retroarch 1.7.2.

    OK, so we can’t roll a public release out for this one yet since it still relies on baking in the content through squashfs. However, the Switch homebrew is recently heating up with the release of the Homebrew Launcher, and also competing SDKs like Libnx.

    However, we hope that by the time 1.7.2 comes out, we will have something in a ready-made fashion available to all.

    The 1.7.1 release also brings Wii U improvements
    • Overlay support.
    • Transparency support in menu + overlays.
    • Increased stability during core switching.
    • Shader support.
    • Menu shader effects added (shaders).
    • Add missing time/clock support. (also fixes RTC [Real Time Clock] in Gambatte)

    Nice! Has Nintendo still not brought Virtual Console games to the Switch?

    I don't know since I don't own a switch. I did see something about Neo Geo games coming to Switch so I would assume there are other VC games as well.

    It would probably hurt their classic console sales.
