What is yuzu Early Access?

yuzu Early Access is a new release channel includes all the same daily yuzu updates that you are accustomed to, plus the early releases of features that you have typically seen in special Patreon releases! Instead of downloading manual builds from patreon, you’ll get these new Early Access builds directly via the Installer (future updates included).

By clicking on the link, a new tab will open, redirecting you to the Citra Community forum. As both Citra and yuzu share a common Discourse forum, you'll have to either log in with those credentials or create a new account there. Users also have the option of signing in using their existing Google or GitHub account.
