Wii U 4K Emulation Is Here (And It’s Stunning)

Cemu has finally cracked Wii U 4K emulation, and Mario, Zelda and Xenoblade look better than ever. This emulator is sure to tide you over until the Switch (if you’re into that sort of thing).

wow.. pretty awesome. Will have to have a look at these videos on my TV at home so I can see them in 4K.

It amazes me how fast Cemu is progressing. Version 1.6.4b is almost perfect. Running games like Mario Kart 8 almost flawlessly now.

The people who make those emulators really deserve a round of applause for their incredible talent to make something like that.

i think they deserve some time in a cell.
Clearly, i russled some jimmies. Sorry thieves.
@darkstorm i can't make anything, sure, but i don't steal. You, on the other hand, can't make anything and yet you steal people's work. How ironic!

Emulators aren't illegal.. some let you use your original disc. How you get your roms/iso dumps is where it can become illegal.
Most of my Wii U library is digital so I couldn't really make use of this emu.

I found the poor sad Nintendrone.

Wow, what a loser.
Since you cant make anything you want others to suffer.

Downvote for acting like a retard and opening your mouth.

I own a bunch of WiiU games on disc and am excited to play these games in 4K. I won't be pirating games but I will play what I own however I bloody well want, and you can keep your antiquated self righteousness to yourself.

Funnily enough you and a lot of developers seem to be labouring under the delusion that emulation is illegal...

Despite the fact that platform holders have NEVER beaten emulators in court. Ever. Lost every single time.

What do you think Virtual Console is? It's an emulator. What do you think the recent spate of SNK rereleases are? Emulations.

See this informative video on the challenges an industry developer who's business model is built on emulation faces:

If you are against people ripping their own ISOs, and playing them via a reversed engineering of hardware via software, then are you also against people listening to music ripped off discs they've purchased and listening to them on their phones?

Featuring_Dante465d ago

@articuno so basically, you're against developers, the righteous owners, for using their own property to port them to whatever console they prefer, but ironically, you're ok with people using the developers' work for their own satisfaction, possibly without paying a dime.
You guys are in for a shock when you experience the real world!

Yeah it's really impressive what some of these small teams can achieve. Last time I looked into it there was still a few too many problems but looks like I need to go back and try it again.

DarkOcelet466d ago

You definitely should. It's awesome. Played Wind Waker HD on it today and it ran spectacularly well.

Featuring_Dante467d ago (Edited 467d ago )

Video in the article makes the game looks awful. Game is chugging at basic attacks, not to mention no sound!

PC System Requirements to run cemu (from =

Windows 7 (x64) or above

And a statement that "Cemu is not intended for general use yet."

Gaming4Life1981467d ago

Any word on when the emulator will ready for general use? Can I still get the emulator now?

Deadpooled466d ago

Yeah you can get the emulator now direct from their website, obviously ensure your laptop/PC can run the specs, and enjoy :) I heard Mario Kart runs flawlessly.
