the exclusive Switch already runs on PC in 4K with an emulator

Despite having just arrived on the market, Metroid Dread can already be played from start to finish on PC thanks to two distinct Nintendo Switch emulators, Yuzu and Ryujinx.

The former, Yuzu, plays the latest MercurySteam game smoothly at original resolution. Ryunjix, for its part, allows you to increase the resolution at will, but has stuttering problems that can be partially circumvented by using the Emusak add-on, which downloads all the shaders of the game avoiding that these have to be stored in cache during advancement.

Curious to find out how Metroid Dread fares on PC? The youtuber Gaminja, equipped with a PC with an Intel Core i5-8400, an NVIDITA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, recorded two distinct gameplay videos: one on Ryujinx, with which he was able to go up to 4K , and one about Yuzu. You can find them both attached to this news.

We would like to specify that by showing you these videos we do not intend in any way to entice you to piracy, a practice that the editorial staff of Everyeye condemns in all its forms. Our goal is just to show you the progress made in the areas of emulation and programming. About the game, if you want to know more you can read our Metroid Dread review.
