How to Update Yuzu Games?

Update Yuzu Games:- Yuzu is a popular emulator that allows you to play Nintendo Switch games on your computer. Updating games in Yuzu is a simple process that can be done in a few steps. Here’s how to do it. If you want to update again (assuming another update is released) you have to delete (or save a backup if you need it, all games are contained here) and start all over again. This is done because Yuzu currently doesn’t properly overwrite updates and install new ones. This could be fixed in future releases.

That’s all there is to it! Updating games in Yuzu is a simple process that will ensure that you are playing the latest version of your favorite games. Just follow these steps and you’ll have the latest version of your games up and running in no time.

Note: It’s important to keep your games up to date in order to get the best experience and fix any bugs or issues. Additionally, some games may require a specific version in order to work properly, so updating them can be essential.

How to Install Updates

  • If you have an update in NCA format, click, then Install file to NAND…, select your updated NCA, and then in the drop-down box choose Game Update. If you get an error, double-check your encryption keys and dump.
  • If you have updates installed on your NAND or SD card, you can copy the entire NAND into %YUZU_DIR%/nand/user or the entire sd card to %YUZU_DIR%/sdmc.
  • If your update is in NSP format, use the File > Install File method described above for NCA, except the Game Update the menu won’t show (yuzu can infer it from the NSP metadata)

Update Yuzu Games

  • If your update was installed successfully, next to all games that match the title ID of the update, a message would show in the add-ons column of the game list.
    • If you installed just an updated NCA, it will probably only say Update.
    • If you copied your NAND or SD or used an NSP update, it will probably say Update vX.Y.Z where X, Y, and Z numbers. Don’t be alarmed if the numbers don’t match what the game says the version is, the version in the game list is the version as determined by Nintendo’s servers, and the one in the game is independent.
  • Updates do not apply to deconstructed ROM directories (folders with main, main.npdm, game.romfs, etc). This is because the roofs cannot be guaranteed to be the base game, and patching anything else will result in strange bugs and crashes. If you can ensure that your roof is the base game, skip to the Repacking to NSP section to force yuzu to patch it.


In conclusion, updating games in Yuzu is an easy and straightforward process. By following the steps outlined above, you can ensure that you are always playing the latest version of your favorite games, complete with all the latest features, bug fixes, and performance improvements. Whether you’re a seasoned Yuzu user or a newcomer, this simple guide will help you keep your games up to date-and running smoothly.
