Zelda: Breath of the Wild Finally Rendering Grass And Water In Latest Version of CEMU

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be ‘playable’ on PC as we have shared earlier. However the game is not without its faults thanks to major bugs and other issues that it shows on PC due to emulation. The Nintendo Wii U has been emulated to some degree on success on PC and thanks to the work by developers on CEMU, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is showing an improvement in its performance on the PC.

The video shared by the developers showcasing a preview of the latest version of CEMU (1.7.4) gives us a glimpse at what to expect from the game. The basic issues that were a major hurdle in the previous version of the emulator appear to be grass and water rendering. In addition to this, the physics were also wonky resulting in glitches. Link itself could get buried in the ground thanks to lack of collision detection.

The video above shows that the physics have been resolved, grass now renders as intended while the water effects are fixed, which means the game is now in actual playable state even if it can’t really be fully completed from start to end. Still, it is a rather fast progress from the developers who are hard at work on a functional Wii U emulator on PC.

Note: GearNuke strongly discourages any piracy related discussion. If you are interested in emulation, we recommend to purchase a Wii U along with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild so you can rip your own copy of the game to PC.
