Ni no Kuni is now fully playable and runs great via Vulkan on RPCS3

The team behind the┬ábest emulator for Playstation 3, RPCS3, has released a new version and we are happy to report that the first Ni no Kuni game is now almost fully playable on it. What’s also interesting is that some flickering issues that were present with the Vulkan API have been addressed, and there have been some noticeable performance improvements.

As we can see, there aren’t any graphical glitches or flickers, and performance is more than fine for this particular title. The outlines on the characters seem to be missing but other than that, every detail is being displayed (or we can’t spot any other missing effect).

This version of RPCS3 is most likely already available to all patreon members. The team did not reveal when it will become available to the public, though we can assume that it will be done sometime next week.
