As of now, the emulator is still in the works and the recent trials have yielded positive results. Soon, Android users will be able to enjoy a flawless experience of their favorite PlayStation 2 titles. Fans are likely to get more news about its release in a few days.

It’s hard to believe that iconic PlayStation 2 games like Resident Evil 4, God of War II, Final Fantasy XII, and many more will run smoothly on Android phones. But that’s exactly what the future holds.

AetherSX2- Price and more

Talhreth is the official developer of this emulator, and they will keep AetherSX2 absolutely free of cost. Yes, that’s right, this emulator won’t cost a penny to use; it’s an admirable approach from the devs.

In addition to being available free of cost, it is also an open-source software. This means other developers can use the source code without worrying about copyright issues.

Talhreth’s decision of keeping it open source must’ve been surprising for the entire gaming community.

Talhreth expects to launch this app before the end of 2021, which means fans can get their hands on it next month.
