Metroid Dread

The Switch exclusive Metroid Dread is very much the game of the moment, but it appears some people aren't even playing this new release on Nintendo's hardware. As highlighted by the folks over at PC Gamer, certain individuals are already running this title on open-source Switch emulators - increasing the resolution to 4K and unlocking the framerate.

A YouTube channel has uploaded a 10-minute "emulator performance test" video (which we won't be sharing here) - showcasing Dread running on a PC powered by a 6GB GTX 1060, an Intel Core i5-8400 processor, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

As stunning as this admittedly looks on the PC, it will probably raise some eyebrows over at Nintendo's headquarters. Of course, if you want to show your support for Samus' new game, the best way to do it is to play Metroid Dread on Switch.
