The Yuzu emulator was reborn as Suyu, but was removed shortly after the premiere. Nintendo hasn’t said the last word


The Yuzu emulator was reborn as Suyu, but was removed shortly after the premiere.  Nintendo hasn't said the last wordNintendo’s lawsuit against the creators of the Nintendo Switch game emulator called Yuzu ended with a settlement worth $2.4 million. Of course, it was only a matter of time before the software returned to the market under a different name. This is what happened, and two projects based on the Yuzu code appeared on the Internet: Suyu and Nuzu. The first one was dynamically developed and was made available on GitLab just a few days ago. However, he disappeared from there quite quickly.

The Yuzu emulator, like Hydra, was reborn in other “incarnations”, but everything indicates that Nintendo will continue to silently fight it. One of the heads has just been partially decapitated and disappeared from GitLab.

Nintendo’s win against the creators of the Yuzu emulator begins changes. The consequences are already visible in other developers

The dust after the aforementioned lawsuit from Nintendo has not yet settled, and work has already started on clones of the Yuzu emulator. The most popular project became Suyu, whose creators mocked Nintendo from the very beginning, claiming that they would certainly not be affected by any lawsuit. All because they decided not to make money on the development of the emulator, as was the case with its predecessor. So confident, they made Suyu available on GitLab (an alternative to the more famous GitHub) and… soon their accounts were blocked and the project was deleted. All because of a DMCA (1201) violation. The author of the complaint is unknown, although it is quite easy to guess who is behind it all.

Yuzu – the Nintendo Switch game emulator is ending its life. Creators defeated by Nintendo must pay over $2 million

Of course, the creators also have no intention of giving up and have already moved the entire Suyu repository to another place. Even though they state from the very beginning that you must have the original games and a Nintendo Switch console to use the software, such information is not enough for Nintendo to pass by the “new” emulator with indifference. The situation with Yuzu-based emulators is quite evolving and it is difficult to predict the final result. Even if Nintendo tries hard to make all derivative emulators disappear from the internet, it’s a fight against windmills because they will continue to appear.
