Pokemon Sword And Shield have been released today on Nintendo Switch, and the Yuzu emulator can already run the two games.

While the new entries in the Pokemon series do run on the emulator, they are not in a playable state as of now. Still, it's really impressive how the emulator can manage to run games on day one.

Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokemon.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are now available on Nintendo Switch worldwide.
