Forget having to Switch, here's what Zelda: Breath of the Wild looks like in 4K on PC
Developers of the CEMU Wii U emulator on PC have updated their solution to support Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the latest title in the series is now playable thanks to many of the bugs and issues have been ironed out. The best part is it's possible to enjoy Zelda at resolutions of up to 4K. YouTube channel YamGaming made some changes to the emulator's configuration to achieve the stunning result.
As noted by VentureBeat, the number of frames per second (FPS) are reported to be low for the most part, though the experience is one that is stable enough to enjoy. And to enjoy Zelda at 4K, you'll need to be packing some serious heat inside the case. Intel Core i7 and a GTX 1070 at the very least.
Of course, Windows Central doesn't condone the use of emulation software, nor do we recommend you download CEMU and Zelda: BotW. That said, should you already own the game and decide to extract said files onto your PC, you would not be harming the financial sales of Nintendo. At any rate, YamGaming supplied all the information you need in the video description to get started.

Gikari's point is valid.
Even despite the desperate and downright silly 'gotta add this in to protect ourselves legally' last paragraph of the article, the wording throughout the entire article clearly infers that this practice is condoned. "That said, should you already own the game and decide to extract said files onto your PC, you would not be harming the financial sales of Nintendo." Right.... So Joe Shmoe can just go out and buy BOTW, then use the emulator to 'enjoy' (as is stated multiple times in the article) playing the game on PC. and doing so does not harm Nintendo's financial sales.. at.. all. There's some logic.. I love Windows Central, but some of the articles lately are ludicrous.
