Breath Of The Wild Now Runs Beautifully In 4K (On The PC)

Luke Plunkett Feb 06, 2019. 21 comments

While the latest Zelda game has been available in 4K for a while now on the PC via emulation , its performance wasn’t always the best. It is now.

The latest version of the CEMU emulator, 1.15.2, is now able to run the game at 4K resolution, and at framerates of between 60-100fps.

I know the game is already gorgeous as nature intended it, on the Switch. But hoo boy this is gorgeous.

(This video is available in 4K/60fps, you might just need to toggle it in the video settings if your platform supports it)

It’s almost September, and you know what that means. It’s time to ride the cybernetic battle cat of your dreams into the alien frey. Huzzah! PlatinumGames’ newest Nintendo exclusive is finally here, and it looks like it might actually live up to the hype.

The Haunting Discoveries Of Outer Wilds The Haunting Discoveries Of Outer Wilds

My Outer Wilds journey had me awash in emotions from fear to joy to sadness. There was one discovery, however, that made me unexpectedly queasy. It also left me with a lingering sense of overwhelming dread that morphed into much more. Mobius Digital’s game, which was released earlier this year on Xbox One and PC, begins on your home...

It’s not often I replay games, but when my sister asked for something to play together, I suggested The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. More than two years had passed since I completed Link’s adventure on my own, and I wanted her to experience it ahead of the recently-announced sequel . Let me recount all the ways I...

What Is Your Favorite Game Sequel? What Is Your Favorite Game Sequel?

There are great sequels. And then there are all the crappy ones that seem like little more than cynical cash grabs. I’m going to focus on the former.Sometimes, the best sequels take a classic formula and evolve on them. I loved Final Fantasy II (IV in Japan), Uncharted II, Mass Effect 2, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Phantasy Star...

The Brilliant Use of Verticality in Minish Cap’s Palace of Winds The Brilliant Use of Verticality in Minish Cap’s Palace of Winds

There are so many great, memorable levels in the Zelda series, from Majora Mask’s Stone Tower Temple to the Arbiter’s Grounds in Twilight Princess. But a level that’s always stayed with me from the series is the Palace of Winds from the Minish Cap. Developed by Capcom and Flagship, The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap was released in 2004 for...

A Plague Tale Is One Of The Most Disturbing Games I’ve Played A Plague Tale Is One Of The Most Disturbing Games I’ve Played

It’s been so long since a game has truly scared me that A Plague Tale: Innocence caught me completely off guard. Tense, terrifying, and meticulously crafted, Plague Tale excels at making you feel utterly helpless. Set in late 1349 in Aquitaine, France, the medieval setting is one of the game’s strengths, distinguishing itself with the backdrop of a dark,...

Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  The very first time I was a guest writer for Kotaku, I wrote about Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV , which was my favorite in the series. I’ve played ROTKIV too many times to count as its strategy gaming at its best. I did play many...
