Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just released on the Nintendo Switch and fans all over the world are enjoying the myriad of offerings that the game brings to them in the form of the character roster comprising of 71 fighters, 103 stages and more. Nintendo might have the game on the platform, but Ryujinx, a Switch emulator might have some good news for PC fans. It might soon be possible to run Super Smash Bros. Ultimate PC. The catch? The emulator has only made progress to the main menu.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate PC – The Story So Far
Yuzu is a current hot pick for Switch emulator on the PC but it seems Ryujinx is also there to compete. While Yuzu has managed to make Super Mario Odyssey playable from start to finish, it seems that Ryujinx has managed to make Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on PC a possibility. So far the emulator has only been able to reach the main menu.
It goes in menu so far. Do keep on mind though, the frames do strobe randomly. So be aware until that's fixed.

When Can It Be Played on PC?
Considering that the game is a whole lot more complex than Super Mario Odyssey, you might want to take a seat on this game.
Super Mario Odyssey took nearly a year to make it reach the state it is in currently, so you will have to wait around the same time period to see the same progress made for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on PC. Keep in mind that emulating a game of the scale of Smash is no minor task.
Follow the developers on Twitter, wait for us to keep you updated on developments, and more details as they come.
The emulation scene is made up of people who do this voluntarily, so you have to understand that they will work on emulating the game during their free time. As such, you can just sit back, relax and enjoy plenty of other games coming out this year and next year to keep you at bay.
Unfortunately you won’t be playing Smash Bros on PC anytime soon, but there are plenty of other games to look forward to in the meanwhile. Let us know what games you’re ecstatic for.
