Ryujinx LDN 3 Released, Adds Connectivity Support to CFW Switches, Improved Performance for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
I can’t help but chuckle. The newly released Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is apparently suffering from framerate issues.
A first-party game. Having framerate issues on native hardware.
Good thing we’ve got emulation. Ryujinx is a great choice. In fact, if you want to play online multiplayer on Linux/Windows with Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, it’s possible thanks to the LDN build. We’ve got quite a few goodies in store here with the new 3.0 update. We’ve got improved performance, particularly with the new Pokémon game; Splatoon 3 is now playable on AMD GPUs; and interconnectivity with Linux/Windows and actual Nintendo Switch consoles that have custom firmware is now possible.

Awesome if you want an interface that’s a little more modern-looking.
