The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an incredibly gorgeous game, even on Nintendo’s modestly-powered Switch console (and the dated Wii U). As some dedicated coders have shown, however, the game can look far better if you have access to faster hardware… like, a high-end gaming PC.
The above clip was created using the latest version of a Wii U emulator called CEMU. Here, we see Breath of the Wild running in full 4K (3,840 x 2,160) on an Intel Core i7-6700K, 16GB of RAM and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU.
As Ars Technica highlights, you’ll also need some community-made graphics packs and will probably need to spend some time tinkering with various settings to dial things in. But given enough time and the right hardware, you should be able to emulate (no pun intended) the results seen in the video in a legal manner.
