The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Emulated On PC, Shows Main Menu

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is out today and it has immediately become one of the highest rated game released this generation. Most of the critics have awarded it a perfect score resulting in a Metacritic average of 98 for it, which makes it the second best game of all time, just behind The Legend of Zelda Ocarnia of Time.

While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only playable on the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U, there is a way to run it on PC using the Nintendo Wii U emulator, CEMU. Although it is still in starting stage of development which means it wouldn’t be possible to play the actual game.

The video below shows the game booting to the menu screen in CEMU and hints at a tease of what to come from emulation. If you are hoping to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on PC at launch, don’t hold you breath. The game showing the main menu is the easiest part, it will take weeks to months for the game to be actually in ‘playable’ state on PC.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the first open world Zelda game developed by Nintendo. It is out today on March 3rd for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U.
