The titles The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Cave Story+ formed the first group of games to boot on this emulator.[1] On late April 2018, yuzu booted its first Switch exclusive, 1-2-Switch. On July 2018, yuzu was able to run its first 3D rendered game, Minecraft: Story Mode.

Be sure to read this first insightful progress blog report (July 14, 2018), which details the background and efforts at the reverse-engineering and emulation work required to get yuzu up and running and a small bundle of games and apps to work better over time. It also covers a significant number of surprising similarities between the hardware and operating systems of the 3DS and Switch. Thus, a lot of the code made for the 3DS emulator Citra was also shared and re-interpreted for yuzu.

yuzu started showing some 3D rendering on Super Mario Odyssey in early August[2]. This awaited exclusive game brought a lot of interest in the project. yuzu covered all the August change in another detailed progress report (September 11, 2018).

As of today, yuzu is now in-game in several Nintendo Switch exclusives[3] and keep improving it's compatibility day by day with active developers.
