The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild already runs as good on the PC as on WiiU and Nintendo Switch

The team behind the amazing WiiU emulator, CEMU, have released a new version of it and YouTube’s members ‘Jolu42’ and ‘YamGaming’ shared videos, showcasing the game running at almost locked 30fps.

As we can see, there are some framerate drops to 20fps under various scenarios. The good news here is that both the WiiU and Nintendo Switch versions suffer from similar framerate drops. As such, the CEMU version is currently running as good as the original versions.

Moreover, the CEMU version is perfectly playable in 4K. Thanks to this resolution improvement, the CEMU version looks way better than the WiiU and the Nintendo Switch versions.

While it will take a while until CEMU will be able to run this game at 60fps, we expect its next version to run it at stable 30fps.

Enjoy the videos!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
