Metroit Prime Remastered feature

Metroid Prime Remastered is playable on PC via Nintendo Switch emulators

Nintendo released a remastered version of Metroid Prime for Nintendo Switch on February 8th. And, unsurprisingly, the game is already playable on PC at 4K/60fps via the yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator.

YouTube’s ‘reznoire’ shared the following video, showcasing the game running on the yuzu Early Access 3401 build. In order to capture this gameplay footage, reznoire used an Intel Core i9-12900K with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. And, as we can see, the game runs smoothly at 1440p with locked 60fps.

What’s also interesting here is that emulation appears to be perfect. From what I could tell, there weren’t any graphical glitches or artifacts in the following footage.

As said, this didn’t really surprise me. After all, we’ve seen numerous Nintendo Switch releases running smoothly via Nintendo Switch emulators on launch day. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Bayonetta 3, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 were among them.
