Metroid Dread

The Switch exclusive Metroid Dread is very much the game of the moment, but it appears some people aren’t even playing this new release on Nintendo’s hardware. As highlighted by the folks over at PC Gamer, certain individuals are already running this title on the open-source Switch emulators Yuzu and Ryujinx – increasing the resolution to 4K and unlocking the framerate.

A YouTube channel has uploaded a 10-minute “Yuzu emulator performance test” video (which we won’t be sharing here) – showcasing Dread running on a PC powered by a 6GB GTX 1060, an Intel Core i5-8400 processor, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

As stunning as this title admittedly looks on the PC, it’s alarming to think it’s taken just a few days to achieve this – Nintendo, you might want to review your anti-piracy measures. Of course, if you want to show your support for Samus’ new release, the best way to do it is to go out and buy a copy of Metroid Dread for Switch.
