Breath Of The Wild Now Runs Beautifully In 4K (On The PC)

While the latest Zelda game has been available in 4K for a while now on the PC via emulation, its performance wasn’t always the best. It is now.

The latest version of the CEMU emulator, 1.15.2, is now able to run the game at 4K resolution, and at framerates of between 60-100fps.

I know the game is already gorgeous as nature intended it, on the Switch. But hoo boy this is gorgeous.

(This video is available in 4K/60fps, you might just need to toggle it in the video settings if your platform supports it)

Why must you continue to report on things that are—now, not only incredibly more illegal in Japan and still illegal in the US; but also—bound to be hit with legal action by one of the most litigious companies in the world?

I get it, it’s a story; it gets clicks and it’s part of gaming culture. It’s cool and/historic, sometimes. But, I swear. Every. Single. Time. This website reports on something related to emulation or the emulation of videogames, it’s the fans working their asses off to make these projects a reality that end up getting fucked over.

So, thanks again, I guess, for letting us all know about something really, really cool!

It’s just going to be a shame when years of work get inevitably erased, or these projects go further and further underground because gaming journalists think being on top of The Next Cool Thing is somehow more important to the community/medium/history/etc than letting grassroots fanprojects stay word-of-mouth.

(And, yeah: I already know someone is going to say: “emulation is illegal so the people involved know the risks!!!”

Shut up.)
