yuzu Git (2020/02/12) is complied. yuzu is a work-in-progress Nintendo Switch emulator. yuzu is an open-source project, licensed under the GPLv2 (or any later version).

yuzu has been designed with portability in mind, with builds available for Windows, Linux, and macOS. The project was started in spring of 2017 by bunnei, one of the original authors of the popular Citra 3DS emulator, to experiment with and research the Nintendo Switch.

Due to the similarities between Switch and 3DS, yuzu was developed as a fork of Citra. This means that it uses the same project architecture, and both emulators benefit from shared improvements. During the early months of development, work was done in private, and progress was slow. However, as Switch reverse-engineering and homebrew development became popular, work on yuzu began to take off as well.

yuzu Git Changelog:
* Merge pull request #3376 from ReinUsesLisp/point-sprite
* gl_rasterizer: Implement GL_POINT_SPRITE

NooDS Git (2020/02/05) is complied. A (hopefully!) speedy NDS emulator.

NooDS is available for Linux, macOS, Windows, and the Nintendo Switch.

Automatic builds are provided; to use them, you'll need to install wxWidgets on Linux or macOS, or the latest Visual C++ runtime library on Windows.

NooDS doesn't provide high-level emulation of the BIOS yet. To actually run games, you'll need BIOS files, named "bios7.bin" and "bios9.bin", and a firmware file, named "firmware.bin", placed in the same directory as the executable.

On the Switch, you'll also need to have a ROM file named "rom.nds" in the directory, because there's no file browser yet.

NooDS Git Changelog:

* Add save type selection for when no save file exists

Download: NooDS Git (2020/02/05) x64 for Windows

Download: NooDS Git (2020/02/05) for Switch

There aren't a ton of options when it comes to Python based game engines, but we now have a new option. The Ursina Engine is built on top of the capable Panda3D game engine, and makes it incredibly easy to just start writing code and get immediate results. An excellent option for someone looking to learn 3D development using the Python programming language.
