The teaser image of the highly anticipated Dreamcast Emulator for Nintendo Switch has landed on the internet. Though the Nintendo Switch project homebrew that involves collaboration with third-party developers is still in its early stages, the recent spate of releases indicates that things are moving rapidly towards the logical conclusion as to the arrival of titles from other platforms. The Dreamcast emulator is the latest to support the console.
Just recently, the Reicast development team working on the Dreamcast emulator released a teaser alluding to the possibility of the emulator running on Nintendo Switch with the Sonic Adventure game loading screen showing on the display of the console.

So far things are not clear about the details pertaining to the emulator, but it can fairly confidently be guessed that it is going to be a top performer because of the team of developers in charge of the main project. Reicast has experience with dynamic recompiling that boosts game speeds on non-native platforms.
Reicast is already available on Android and PC. The official website contains further information in this regard if you’re interested:
Reicast is a Sega Dreamcast emulator. It’s an app that allows you to play your Dreamcast games on your computer or android phone. We’ve even baked in some magic to make things looks prettier than they did on the Dreamcast. Of course, not all games work, and the ones that do often have glitches
Reicast primarily aims for speed and to run on android. It is derived from the nullDC codebase. We work on it in our spare time, because we love working on complicated, headache-inducing projects. Development traces back to late 2003 and has been largely non-continuous.
