Well, you gotta love the community of CEMU, the best emulator for WiiU. In the past we’ve seen some tweaks that enabled 21:9 monitor support for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and now Xalphenos is working on a modification that will remove the 30fps cap and will allow players to enjoy this new Zelda game with 60fps.
Now as Xalphenos stated, this mod will not make the game run better. This mod will not increase performance and those that cannot run the game with a stable framerate will not see any additional performance improvements.
Ironically, those wishing for a true 60fps will have to rely on this mod and the WiiU emulator as both WiiU and Switch run the game at 30fps.
Right now, Xalphenos suggests using this mod in shrines as the outdoor environments are more demanding.
Do note that this mod requires a system that it could already – without the hack – go to 60FPS in some areas. In other words, you really need a powerful system in order to play it. Things will obviously get better with newer versions of both CEMU and this mod, however – and at this point – you should consider this mod as a proof-of-concept.
Those interested can download this 60fps mod from here. This mod is compatible with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild v1.3.0 or v1.3.1 and requires the latest Cemuhook. It also requires a Cemu state that it could already do 60FPS in an area before.
