Emulator Runs ‘The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’ On PC

A group of people was able to get “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" to run on PC through an emulator. However, their project is still in progress because they still need to improve its fps and fix a number bugs while playing the game. Although they are confident that they can have the game up and running in the emulator in a couple of months.

According to a report by Gamerant, the project was started by the same group that created the Wii U emulator called CEMU that enables Super Mario to run on PCs in 4k resolution. Now the group is focusing on making “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” work on the same emulator. At the moment, the game is running a bit lag through CEMU with 15 fps and bugs but shouldn’t be too difficult according to the group.

Since an emulator for Nintendo Switch has not yet been done, adjustments have been made to make “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” work on CEMU. The good news is that the difference between the two console, in terms of resolution, doesn’t seem to have much difference based on the video posted by a fan. In the video, the game is seen to be played on a PC with mid-level hardware namely i74790K CPU, 8GB, and GTX 780 GPU.

Nintendo has yet to comment on the new development of CEMU according to PC Gamer. The company is known for not taking any copyright infringement easily, to the point of suing a company for creating a Nintendo-inspired business without proper permission. As for CEMU, they have been doing this kind of projects for some time now wherein some projects have been shut down. One of it is Pokemon Uranium while their GameCube emulator “Dolphin” have been running for years now.
