How to Play New Pokemon Snap on Yuzu
Hey guys. Narnacle here. And in this video, I’ll show you how to play New Pokemon Snap on Yuzu in a very simple way. Since yesterday I stream the New Pokémon Snap on Facebook, Twitch and YouTube and I have noticed that this game has a lot of interest, but that many interested parties do not have a Switch.
And since I believe that the New Pokémon Snap could have been released as a mobile game, I get that. But the New Pokémon Snap is simply a Nintendo Switch game. It is what it is, but if you have a decent PC, you will be able to play the New Pokémon Snap on your PC after watching this video.
What you need for this is Yuzu. And no, that’s not some Gen-Z term for respect or money or something. Yuzu is a Nintendo Switch emulator that you can install on your PC to play Nintendo Switch games, including the New Pokémon Snap. However, this method does have a huge gray area.
That’s because the method I show in this video can potentially be illegal if you haven’t purchased the game yourself. I hereby indicate, as you can see in the video, that I have bought this game and therefore also have it in my possession. I support the makers and Nintendo enormously in making their Pokémon games.
I therefore do not want to incite or encourage illegal activity. That said, I’ll show you how to play the New Pokémon Snap on your PC.
Download and Install the Yuzu Emulator
In the description, I leave a link with which you can download the Yuzu Switch emulator. Simply click on the Download button.
You will be taken to the Downloads page. Here you click on the green Download for Windows x64 button. Simply run the .exe file and click Install on the first screen that appears. The Yuzu emulator will now be installed for you. This may take a while so please wait patiently for the installation.
When the installation is complete, click Exit to complete the installation. If all goes well, the emulator will automatically start for you afterwards. You will see a message indicating that certain components are missing. That’s right. We are going to download those components. So just click OK for now.
It is up to you whether you want to send anonymous user data to the developers of the emulator, but then you will be taken to the main screen of the emulator.
Download and Install the Yuzu Keys
Close the emulator. We are now going to install those missing components first. Also for this I leave a download link in the description of this video.
When you’ve downloaded that file to your computer, click the Windows start button and enter the following:% appdata% and hit enter. Your Windows explorer will now open a folder containing a yuzu folder. Open this one. In this folder you will find another keys map. Open this one. This is where you drag the downloaded .keys file.
If you now start the Yuzu emulator, you should no longer get the message about missing components. At the top left of the screen you will see an Emulation option. Click on it and choose Configure in the menu that appears. Here you can adjust the configuration of the emulator as you wish.
For example, the user interface is a bit too light for me so I click on the UI tab and choose Dark Colorful next to Theme. In the Controls configuration you can connect a controller to play your Nintendo Switch games in the Yuzu emulator. You can connect an Xbox or PS4 controller to your PC and use it for gaming.
You can manually assign any button to the virtual Switch controller by clicking on it and then using the button on your controller to indicate that you want to use that button for that specific function. For the New Pokémon Snap, this is the only configuration you need to adjust in the emulator.
You may have to adjust a few things in the configuration for other games, but in this video I will not talk about that, I just want to show you how to play the New Pokémon Snap on the PC and there is the default configuration. basically fine for that.
Play the New Pokemon Snap on Yuzu
I leave a link in the description to the game itself. So to the New Pokéman Snap that you can download and play in the emulator but I want to emphasize again that this video is for educational purposes only and downloading the game is only legal if you already have a physical or digital copy of the New Pokémon Snap.
I say this to protect myself and as previously stated I have a physical copy of the official game. The files you need are basically just the Base game that you can download by clicking this link to 1Fichier. This will get you a .rar file that you will have to extract with software such as … WinRAR.
What is in the RAR archive is an NSP file which you open with the Yuzu emulator. I prefer to make a separate map for each game myself, but that is of course entirely up to you. When you have extracted the file from the RAR archive, open the Yuzu emulator and double click on the folder icon that you see on the screen.
Now simply browse to the folder where you saved the NSP file and click Select Folder. You will now see the New Pokémon Snap being added to selectable games in Yuzu’s menu. When you double-click on this now, the New Pokémon Snap game will start for you.
I must indicate that the Yuzu emulator is an experimental emulator and it can therefore be very common that your game crashes or that the emulator sometimes crashes. But this is how you play the game on your PC and we will have to accept those disadvantages if we do not have a Nintendo Switch.
I have to say that I don’t think a Nintendo Switch is expensive at all. For $ 300 you already have one on Amazon. So I leave a link in the description. If you want to purchase an official Switch, use the link in the description to immediately support this channel.
