Are you a big fan of Nintendo’s releases, especially the Legend of Zelda series? If so, then you must be pretty bummed out at the moment since the game is not available for PC and getting your hands on a Nintendo Switch console is harder than offing a Leshen in Witcher 3 during the first hours of play. But despair not, fellow gamers, because team CEMU has a surprise in stock for us – a fully playable PC version of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.
So, according to an under-the-counter statement posted online by team CEMU, the guys and girls dedicated to offering the best PC emulations for console titles, Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild can soon be played on any PC.
You’re probably asking yourself right now about how legit this emulator is. Well, to tell you the truth, the PC version of Zelda is very clandestine, meaning that you shouldn’t expect it to show up on any official Nintendo online merchandise store.
Now, according to this here statement, the CEMU team is very close to creating a fully playable PC version of the game. At the moment, players will be able to explore, fight various creatures, enter various shrines, and fast travel. The statement was not clear about some other stuff like skills and quests.
However, the team did say that the emulated version is still under some serious testing, which means that we will have to wait around some more for the improved version. Although they’ve said that most of the game’s feature are working flawlessly on PC, the team could not address the frame drop issue.
Ever since Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild was released for Nintendo Switch, many players have complained about the sudden and horrific frame drops (game seems to hold steady at 20 fps). Well, as far as the upcoming unofficial and highly clandestine PC port is concerned, the frame drop issue is way more severe, CEMU team reporting that, at the moment, they couldn’t get the game running at more than ten fps.
However, since the team has more than 5,000 generous fans, we believe that they won’t have any issues putting in some extra time in order to get the game up and running. Since this is what you might call a under-the-counter project, we won’t supply you with links or instructions on how to download, install, and run Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild on CEMU’s WiiU/Switch emulator.
