The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just took another step closer to becoming fully playable in 4K on the PC, as CEMU developers attempt to upscale the Wii U and Nintendo Switch blockbuster.

A recent Legend of Zelda video showed the game running on the CEMU Wii U emulator, although there were lots of framerate issues and other visual glitches.

Two weeks later, and a new video has been posted of the project, which appears to be shaping up nicely.

For starters, the framerate is much more stable, and Link no longer finds himself waist deep in the grass. Link’s weapons and abilities also seem to be working smoothly.

The developer of the emulator, Exzap, recently told PC Gamer: “There is this common misconception that because the game runs so well already, it will run perfectly equally soon.

“In reality, there is no correlation.”

The improved results are thanks to an improved version of the CEMU emulator (version 1.74), which is out in April. You can see the new video below.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review scores have been through the roof, so it’s no wonder PC players are so desperate to emulate it. Part of the game’s appeal is the amount of secrets it holds, although some are better than others.

One set of fans recently discovered how to unlock a secret ending, while others found what you get for finding all of the game’s Korok seeds.
