Super Mario 3D World can now run at full speed on the Wii U Cemu Emulator


Over the past few months the Wii U's Cemu Emulator has evolved a great deal, moving from just a buggy and almost non-functional start up to a emulator that can actually play current gen console games at full speeds.

Now Super Mario 3D World has been shown running at full speed with no easily noticeable graphical issues.  

The First game to be made entirely playable by the emulator was Shovel Knight, a game which is not terribly graphically intensive, but an impressive feat for such a new a emulator regardless. Since then the Emulator has been made to play better with AMD GPUs and has moved to a state where a several popular titles, which includes Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario Maker are fairly playable.  

Right now the development of the emulator has moved to a Patreon funded model, where those who fund the development on Patreon gain access to the latest version of the emulator a week earlier than the rest of the public. This video is taken using version 1.4 of the emulator, a version that will be made public sometime in the next week. 


Sadly we do not know what the system specifications of the PC that recorded this gameplay, but it is nonetheless impressive to see the Wii U's Cemu emulator become so usable in such a short amount of time.
