CEMU Emulator Now Runs Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild In 4K/60 FPS

If you are a PC gamer and wanted to play Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild even though you don’t own a Nintendo Wii U or Switch then you might already know of CEMU. What you may not know is that through recent updates in the application, CEMU can now run Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 4K resolution with 60 frames per second.

It’s always a hustle to set an emulator up but it’s sometimes the only way to play some of our favorite exclusive titles. With Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being announced game of the year on so many different award ceremonies, it’s only natural that PC gamers would get curious too. They are picky though and know how to play their games at their maximum abilities. This is where CEMU came into play.

Seeing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 4K is bringing the game to a whole new level. With many players complaining about the 720p resolution of the Nintendo Switch or the Wii U, it’s only natural that people would find a way to make it more pleasant visually. The outcome is breathtaking, to say the least.

Even though this emulator for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild seems quite impressive, it needs a solid PC build to be able to run properly. A 4GB video card, 16GB of RAM and a minimum of i5 processor should do the trick but be ready for some really unstable framerates.

The team behind CEMU is continuously working on their project but have revealed that they won’t intervene with Nintendo if they wanted to shut it down. Nintendo still hasn’t shown any intention of shutting down CEMU, however, the creators say that their demonstration is not for commercial purposes but merely to illustrate the technical advances in the field of gaming and emulation.

Meanwhile, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has recently gotten its last piece of DLC and series producer Eiji Aonuma and his team at Nintendo EPD have already started working on a new Zelda game.
