Wii U Gets 4K Treatment Via Emulator Update

Cemu, a profoundly experimental emulator for the Wii U that’s currently available on Windows PC, has been updated enabling 4k visuals on some of the consoles’ titles. The Wii U is capable of outputting visuals of 1080p but now users who upgrade to version have the option to adjust visuals to as high as 4k.

Folk who back the Cemu Patreon campaign get access to the update early whilst those who don’t can acquire it at a public release date of  January 16th.

There’s no denying that Super Mario 3D World does indeed look even more gorgeous when the visuals are ramped up. Check out the video below for a taster:

Sony’s PS4 Pro is out now which is capable of pushing high-end resolutions and with Microsoft’s Scorpio on the horizon it’s worth wondering what Nintendo’s view on hi-res gaming will be. Time will tell…



  1. Dude. You look like the Mona Lisa. Can’t tell if you’re glaring or smiling. XD OK. Sorry, no more profile pic comments from me. ;D

    1. Homosexuality goes against GOD Staplers teachings! Garbage like yourself will benefit by allowing GOD Stapler to save you. You shall be disabused of this flawed mindset, GOD Stapler will inculcate you with the proper teachings! Ameliorate your situation by acting on what is ordered, peasant! Bow!

      The elite presence is anathema to the common cadger, but GOD Stapler shall show you how to engender praises for oneself while remaining in an estimable position. One of many idiosyncrasies exclusive to the contingent that is at GOD Staplers side! GOD stapler is revered in all places!

      Bow, vermin!

        1. Insubordinate lout! GOD Stapler adheres to no doctrine! GOD Stapler reigns supreme and is above ALL!!!! Homosexuality truncates the existence of many—poorly driven—vessels that can serve under the estimable one! Garbage like you, and those of like-minds (flawed) are useless as your idea of life is solely based on aesthetics. The omnipotent endulges in knowledge of self and eliminating harmful proclivities from garbage like you…inveterate perverts!

    2. ||The ambassador will be examined by me in the near future to see his potential…||

  2. If you look at it from different angles, the mood portrayed changes… if you turn it upside now it reveals the Nintendo Switch Official price tag.

      1. Am not surprised, after all drones are in love with Laura Dale. But am afraid this guy could steal sickr from me :'(

    1. Another homosexual with a flawed understanding of ones existence. Licentious buffoon, act on morality and not hormones! GOD Stapler exists for peasants like you, allow yourself to be saved!

      This aberrant lifestyle is shunned and with good reason! GOD Stapler has minions who shall enlighten you on what it really means to be a complete being! As you are, you are less than half! Bow, mendicant!

      Deleterious results come from a mindset like yours, amoral and with an insouciance that should put to shame your elders! BOW, buffoon!

      1. holy shite God Stapler is so god damn jealous of nintenmau5, this is absolutely hilarious, i’ve never seen a God tremble with such insecurity! I guess it makes sense seeing as he created us humans in his likeness, I guess you accidentally made nintenmau5 a little bit *too* good looking. lololololololololololololololol

        1. This “jealous” you speak does not register. GOD Stapler has given praise to the estimable Colette! One of true talent whose praises were earned through actual effort and dedication in their work! This newcomer has yet to prove himself worthy; obsequious homosexuals like yourself, meatball of Glaados fame, dry bone and the rest of the vermin prove here why you should have this flawed lifestyle corrected!

          GOD Stapler reigns supreme! GOD Stapler has always opposed homosexuals on this platform! This page has been inundated with these vermin so GOD Stapler is in full force!

          GOD Stapler shall save all you vermin! This new contributor has posted “passable” content so far..

          Bow, mendicants!!!

            1. The authors ephemeral borderline fawning further diminishes the quality of his attempted goal. Garbage like yourself are impressed by a pseudo pulchritude when it is well known that knowledge trumps all! That is why GOD Stapler feels confident in denouncing this behavior, with a passive effect on those who refuse to speak up, making them vermin by proxy!

              GOD Stapler is above all and it has been established! GOD Stapler is above you vermin! An embarrassment of beings frequent these grounds, however, GOD Stapler will not repudiate having a presence, as GOD Stapler has made his elite stance!

              Bow, mendicants, ALL CRETINS BOW!!!!

    1. Garbage wench!

      GOD Stapler’s esoteric teachings will make you see the light! If you are a dissembler, you are welcomed to take orders from the estimable one! If not, bow, yes, bow as you do so right now!

          1. Your GOD is here!

            The incipient jealousy you carry should be checked out. GOD Stapler can save you, mendicant! It is apparent that the eliteness in GOD Staplers posts—of such refined magnitude—that are immaculately written with terminologies not within immediate understanding of the common lout (like yourself) has engendered jealousy. Worry not, diffident buffoon; GOD Stapler is amenable to lend a hand if garbage like you swear allegiance!

            This elite usage of verbs, nouns and adjectives has had many derelicts search for definitions, thus making GOD Stapler a success…and those who searched the terms, my lackeys by doing so!


  3. No online game play though this is useless right now for most games on the WiiU, plus they already look beautiful, like Bayonetta and such so.

  4. Dude does have a pretty face… And here I thought Jaded_Drybones was the only one who torture me with their looks! >ω<; Dang it, nintenmau5! ♡

  5. OK, so the article. Lol
    Nintendo doesn’t give a shit about resolution IMO, I mean they let the Wii die a slow, painful, Standard Definition death, and the WiiU looked good, but they only put the bare minimum into bring graphics up to speed. I don’t think Nintendo will go 4K for the switch. Maybe not for a couple gens. I honestly don’t mind as long as the switch can be converted up to 4K. If they can push a solid 1080p, at 60 fps, and it could handle realistic effects well for 3rd party… I think I would be OK with that.

    1. I totally agree with you. 4K is nice ofc, but 1080p is more than enough for gaming, even 720p on small portable devices are relatively decent as well. What you always will notice is framedropes — I hate them. Keep 1080p 60fps in docking and I’m happy! I would be happy if the tablet gets a 1080p resolution since it has a 6.2″ screen, but it’s probably to much to ask of Nintendo. PS Vita had a 960×544 resolution, and even with the today’s standard it doesn’t look shabby at all. 720p on Switch will probably be fine.
