At the moment Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only available on consoles like the Wii U and the Switch. However thanks to the Wii U emulator CEMU, Wii U games have managed to find their way onto the PC albeit in a very unofficial and possibly illegal manner, although there are some upsides to this.

As it stands Breath of the Wild is playable in 900p/720p on the Switch depending on whether the console is docked/undocked. However it has been discovered that if you were to play in ot the PC using the CEMU emulator, you will actually be able to bump the resolution of the game up to a whopping 4K.

Now clearly the game was not designed with 4K in mind, but we have to say that when scaled up it certainly looks really good. However it will require that gamers have a compatible PC that is capable of running games in 4K. In the video above, the video’s creator has revealed his PC specs such as an Intel Core i7 6700k CPU that has been overclocked to 4.3GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, Corsair h110i AIO, and 16GB of GSkill Ripjaws RAM overclocked to 2400MHz.

We’re not sure what the minimum requirement is but you can try your luck with your current setup if you wish. In the meantime you can check out the video above to see the game run in 4K, but be warned there are spoilers for the game so if you have yet to play it or yet to complete it, maybe you’ll want to skip it for now.
