Courtesy of Abyssus, here’s some video of Zelda: Breath in the Wild running on the PC’s CEMU emulator in big, beautiful 4K.


Performance isn’t 100% here, but it’s close enough to let us soak this up in all its windy, sun-soaked glory.

“On Cemu, the game is running internally at 8K (7680x4320) and is then downsampled to 4K”, Abyssus says. “Additionally, the in-game anti-aliasing has been disabled (the 8K downsampling is far superior) and higher quality shadows have been enabled.”

Maybe it’s because I’m not obsessed with high-end graphics like some people, but I can barely tell the difference. Honestly, I feel life is a lot easier when you don’t feel the need to buy a $400 video card or a new tv just to see a game look slightly prettier. In my mind’s eye it would still look the same. It just bugs me when people shit on a good game because it’s not on the cutting edge visually, which of course will become an obsolete standard a year later.
