    Clarity GFX Pack Takes Breath of the Wild to a Whole New Level on PC


    As you might've already known, Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been playable on PC for a little while thanks to the help of an emulator called “Cemu.” But now, with the release of a new community-made update called "Clarity GFX," this emulator version of Breath of the Wild is now maybe even more gorgeous than the original.

    If this whole Wii to PC emulator thing is news to you, here’s the scoop on that before we delve any deeper:

    The 1.0 version of the Wii-U/Switch emulator Cemu was released two years ago, and had been steadily improved upon ever since. The catalog of games supported by Cemu, and the degree to which these games have been made compatible on PC has also improved. As of now, hundreds of games are supported at varying levels of compatibility. However, the best thing about the release of this emulator is that it spawned a whole new community of modders! Modders have taken Wii U and Switch games to a whole new level: Breath of the Wild and other games are playable at 4k/60fps on PC, despite maxing out at 720p or 900p on their console originators. And with the release of this “Clarity GFX” pack, all those glorious FPS may look even prettier than the original as well.

    If you’re already got your Cemu emulator up and running, here is the official release of the pack on Reddit, along with download and installation instructions.

    This release changes A LOT. “Colors should pop and be more rich, vibrant. Shadows are more dark & pronounced. Objects in the distance should be more crisp, clear, and less washed out” -- according to the authors. Or, a fair description is: it looks like how you nostalgically remember The Wind Waker looking in the idealized recesses of your brain. Don’t google images of Wind Waker! You’ll ruin the memory! Or….at least that’s how it looks to me... But enough description, see for yourself!
