Nintendo Switch™ Emulator for Android™
(No longer in active development)
Skyline was an open source and experimental emulator that runs on ARMv8 Android™ devices and emulates the functionality of a Nintendo Switch™ system.
All development on Skyline has been ceased due to the potential legal risks involved, this website will remain up for the time being but may be taken down in the future. Our Discord Server will still be active for the foreseeable future but will be transitioned into being for our upcoming project at some point. We want to thank everyone who enjoyed Skyline in the past few years ❤️.
Skyline was designed to provide an accurate, performant, and user-friendly emulation experience through an ARM Compatibility Layer and System Emulation.
Is Skyline coming back?
We have no plans to continue Skyline for the foreseeable future.
Can someone else fork Skyline?
Yes, all Skyline code is completely open-source and licensed under MPL-2.0. The source code has been made available for anyone who wants to continue Skyline including the incomplete code for
nnvk which were still being worked on.
Who developed Skyline?
The Skyline Project, while being led by Mark, was composed of a team of open-source developers. See the Team section for more information.
Where does the name come from?
The Nintendo Switch™ system software is codenamed Horizon. Skyline is a synonym and alludes to that software.
How can I contribute to Skyline?
As Skyline development has been discontinued, we are no longer accepting contributions. Nothing prevents anyone from forking Skyline as long as they follow our MPL-2.0 license.
The Skyline Team was composed of passionate individuals from all around the world 🌐
