New posts on the Skyline Discord have revealed footage and screenshots of graphically demanding games. Posts show that Fire Emblem: Three Houses Persona 5: Royal and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Android gameplay are all possible with the early build Skyline Edge Nintendo Switch emulator.
The Skyline community Discord’s showcase section for Skyline Edge features images and videos that existing users have posted, showing off their successes in running games or pointing out titles they have had some problems with.
An Impressive Set Of Titles
Among the other games, users were able to run Astral Chain, Sniper Elite v2 Remastered, Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2, Outlast, Diablo 3, Need For Speed, LA Noire, Monster Hunter Stories 2, the new Pokemon Snap, and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee.
A few tested titles are experiencing issues. Xenoblade Chronicles had some major texture problems and is looking very green right now.
Hello Neighbor 2 locked up fairly early on, and while loading to gameplay, NieR: Automata The End Of YoRHa Edition was seriously struggling to maintain a good framerate in tests, even on pretty high-end devices.
Skyline Edge is the appropriately-named cutting-edge early build of the Skyline Nintendo Switch emulator. It contains the latest features and developments that haven’t been implemented in the open-source Skyline which can be downloaded via the project’s GitHub.
Edge is only accessible to people who have subscribed to Skyline’s Patreon and donate £5/$5 or more a month.
A Bright Future For Emulation
Skyline users are optimistic that future work on the emulator can iron out the issues in many of the titles, and Edge is very much in active development.
The developers have made it clear that they won’t give firm dates on any new updates. The programmers are often developing Skyline in their spare time, and firm ETAs are probably not practical or healthy.
