Super Mario Wonder feature

Super Mario Wonder is already playable on PC in 4K/60fps via Nintendo Switch emulators

The next Mario game for Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Wonder, will officially release on October 20th. However, it appears that the game is already playable on PC in 4K/60fps via the Nintendo Switch emulators.

For those wondering, Super Mario Wonder leaked last week. And, to the surprise of no one, both Yuzu and RyujinX are able to run this new Mario game.

This isn’t the first time that something like this has happened. For instance, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom were playable on PC prior their official release date.

Not only that, but we’ve seen a lot of Nintendo Switch games running on the aforementioned emulators on their launch day. Red Dead Redemption, Bayonetta 3Monster Hunter RiseXenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, and Pikmin 4 were all playable on PC the moment they came out.

Super Mario Wonder is a traditional 2D side-scrolling Super Mario game with 3D models. So, in theory, Yuzu and RyujinX will have no problem running on a wide range of PC configurations. Or at least that’s my assumption. Now while the game is playable, I don’t know whether you can play it from start to finish. I also expect newer versions of Yuzu and RyujinX to bring both visual fixes and performance improvements.

As always, we won’t allow links to the game’s ROM file, so don’t bother sharing any of them.
