    Default Nintendo Switch: melonDS build with working JIT support released

    Nintendo DS emulation on hacked Switch consoles isnít anything new and itís been around for over a year first with DeSmuME-NX and then melonDS. Up till today, melonDS could run some less demanding titles at fullspeed provided you overclocked your Switch to 1.5/1.7GHz but doing this reduced battery life and generated extra heat which would undoubtedly shorten the batteryís lifespan. As a result, the only realistic way to emulate DS games on the Switch was through DraStic on Android but now, thatís changed thanks to catlover007ís work!

    Catlover007 has been working on writing a DS JIT for the Switch for quite a while and now, heís released the first public build of melonDS with an ARM64 JIT and NEON GPU optimisations. According to the release post, his build of melonDS allows you to run most 2D games at good speeds and even some 3D titles like Pokemon HG without overclocking. While this build provides better performance than other melonDS for Switch releases, it doesnít have the regular UI so controlling it might be a tad more annoying but itís certainly doable.
    Shrimptacular on Reddit has tested numerous DS games on this build and heís confirmed that the following titles work properly:

    • Plants vs Zombies
    • Tetris DS
    • Yoshiís Island
    • Castlevania Ecclesia
    • Castlevania Portrait
    • Mario Kart DS
    • Metal Slug 7
    • New Super Mario Bros
    • Many other titles which can be seen by viewing this Reddit comment

    To grab a build of melonDS with JIT, follow this link and enjoy playing DS games on your Switch without killing its battery life!

    Super good, play ds games on Switch is better now, also if you have Nintendo 3DS or NDS console, you can just buy a cheap R4 card to play free ds games with many features like real-time save, AR cheats, homebrews and so on.
