When I first heard of Cemu, the Wii U PC emulator, I was thinking to myself “that’s gonna take a while…like 5 years to get anything basic running”. I was wrong.
As consoles get more advanced, emulating them becomes more of a hassle as you’d need to take into accounts lots of data such as cell processing. Yet despite it only being a few years in development, Cemu managed to somehow pull it off with near perfect results.
The first game you’ll see is Mario Kart 8 running on the latest version of Cemu.
And here’s Wind Waker HD which demonstrates switching screens to use the gamepad.
Mario 3D world
Super Smash Bros 4
I have to say I’m quite blown away by all this. Granted it’s not perfect (Super Smash 4 is choppy) but in comparison, Dolphin took years to gain this level of stability. Granted Dolphin is now a way more advanced emulator than Cemu which playes both Wii and Gamecube. All in all though this is good stuff. But there’s still ways to go as of right now Cemu doesn’t support high resolutions such as 4K.
