Switch emulator Suyu—a fork of the Nintendo-targeted [] and now-defunct [] emulation project Yuzu—has been taken down from GitLab following a DMCA request Thursday. But the emulation project's open source files remain available on a self-hosted git repo on the Suyu website [], and recent compiled binaries remain available on an extant GitLab repo [].

While the DMCA takedown request has not yet appeared on GitLab's public repository of such requests [], a GitLab spokesperson confirmed to The Verge [] that the project was taken down after the site received notice "from a representative of the rightsholder." GitLab has not specified who made the request or how they represented themselves; a representative for Nintendo was not immediately available to respond to a request for comment.
