Credits : Nintendo. Playing Animal Crossing on your Mac M1 may soon be possible. At least that"s what one developer suggests on Twitter. Daeken pulled off the feat of launching Super Mario Odyssey on his Macbook Pro M1, thanks to the open source Yuzu emulator. Developed by the creators of Citra, and designed for the Nintendo 3DS, this emulator is available for download on the official website: . Widely used by players on Switch since console output, it was only compatible with Windows and Linux PCs. Daeken managed to bypass this restriction by using MoltenVK. This software library allows Vulkan applications to run on Apple Metal graphics cards on macOS, iOS, and tvOS operating systems. In the video, available on Twitter, the developer launches the emulator and chooses to play Super Mario Odyssey. We see the main menu appear and leave the choice to the user to play immediately or to play in assistance mode. When deciding to launch the game directly, the user faces the Molten VK limitation. So he still has some progress to make, but that"s already good news. The Switch controllers are also compatible, which will allow you to get the most out of the experience. So we"ll have to keep an eye out to see if other titles will be fully playable. For Windows or Linux PC users, you can find the list of titles compatible withYuzu on the official website, as well as the procedure to follow for the launch. We find in particular Resident Evil 6, marked perfect on the site, or Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo Olympic Games. However, don"t expect to be able to play Doom 3 since only the intro and the menu are accessible. 12,275 Comments Nintendo Switch with pair of ...
