One week ago, Nintendo announced that they have no plans for a traditional Virtual Console on Switch. They're still likely to bring their classic games to the console in one form or another (starting with 20 NES games), but not all fans are that patient. One ambitious Switch owner with some programming talent decided that sooner is better than later.

YouTuber Sam Breadman has uploaded a video showing an early build of the SNES Classic software running on Nintendo Switch, allowing. It looks to be a true recreation of the real thing, complete with a menu, saves, and more. This early version was written in Lua and runs using Lovepotion, although this method isn't particularly effective, so future versions will utilize C and SDL2. Breadman is also currently working to do the same for the original NES Classic software.
