Well, that did not take long. The CEMU PC emulator that handles Wii U titles will soon be patched enough to run The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The patch is due in early April, and it’s numbered 1.7.4.
The emulation group posted a video of the Wii U version of the game running on their PC emulator.
As Kotaku notes, and as all of us know, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a brand new game. This isn’t a case where players are looking to scoop up and preserve a relic that Nintendo (or whatever publisher) is neglecting. This is a game that’s actively being sold and advertised on the open market.
Downloading it for use through emulation is piracy. Straight up.
I can understand people who buy the game on Wii U but also want to play it on PC. I can logic that connection. I can also understand people who live in parts of the world where this game is something like $120 USD after conversion. Sort of. Both of those cases can be made to me, and I’ll more than likely think, “yeah, I get it.”
If you’re downloading Zelda simply to steal it, that’s not cool. It’s never cool. Don’t do it.
It’s crazy that the emulation scene grabbed onto this one so fast, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
