Nearly 8000 backers continue to fund development, too
Cemu, for quite a while, was a relatively low-key Wii U emulator. Its efforts to run games like Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land were mixed at best, often struggling to achieve playable framerates on impressive PC builds. Yet the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild seemingly...
Interest in dev's Patreon spikes, too
During 2016 we provided a few status updates on CEMU, essentially the Wii U spin on the Dolphin emulator - in spirit at least. A team of enthusiasts has been working on running Wii U titles on PC, and results range from playable to sketchy; progress was certainly made, however. The release of The Legend of...
Still a long way from full emulation
It's hard to know what Nintendo makes of Cemu, a Wii U emulator that's been making rapid progress. Often these fan-based projects take years to come together, but in this case there have been frequent updates, perhaps helped by the similarity - in some respects - of the current-gen system to the Wii. In any...
Low performance but fast progress
Towards the end of last year we shared some updates on Cemu, a prospective emulator for the Wii U. Though likely a significant amount of time away from delivering the kind of performance that Dolphin has with Wii and GameCube, it's proving to be an intriguing project for those involved and following it - once you...
Is likely to remain closed-source for a while, too
A little while ago we shared news of Cemu, a functioning Wii U emulator. Early doors it could barely boot up the opening artwork of a game, and the slow nature of progress on such projects points to it being many months (maybe years) away from being functional in a meaningful way. It's less a threat...
Still very early days
For as long as there are consoles there'll be hackers and programmers attempting to reverse engineer them for emulation. Due to all of the work platform holders put into closing off their systems it proves to be difficult, and it took quite some time for the infamous 'Dolphin' emulator to make Wii games playable on PC. It's a...
