Wii U Emulator Launched for PC – Almost Works
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Emulation of other devices is no easy task, especially when it comes to more recently released console hardware as it takes quite a lot of processing power and a lot of skill, as well as trial and error from the developers of the software to get it right, even then it’s often on a per-game basis. The latest emulator is certainly capable of loading Wii U games, but it’s far from perfect, which slow loading, graphical glitches, crashes and there’s not even any audio, but for anyone here who knows about emulation, you’ll know this is a huge step in the right direction.
The development team are hoping to update the software every two weeks, but you’ll need a Windows 7 machine, as well as an Nvidia graphics card to get it running. Of course, as things progress, more hardware configurations will become supported, but for now they’re working on the basics.
I’m hopefully this will make good progress, as the N64, Gamecube and the original Wii are already very well emulator and this is just the next logical step. Check out some of the videos below and see how its coming along, but for now, the Wii U is the best place to play Wii U games.
