The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most beloved Nintendo Switch games since its release. However, the game is locked at 30 FPS and 720p resolution. Fortunately, there is a way to play the game at 60 FPS, 4K resolution, and more customizable mods. So here’s how users can play Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on PC using the Yuzu or Ryujinx emulator.

Based on your hardware, these emulators can run the game better than the Nintendo Switch. They can also raise the resolution natively and add mods that can remove the frame cap. In a game like Legend of Zelda: BOTW, many gameplay mods can also completely change how the game is played. For, eg, Unlimited stamina, arrows, durability, etc.

Many players would definitely want to replay the game before the release of its long-awaited sequel, which is set to arrive on May 12, 2023. However, using these emulators can be a bit difficult. So follow the steps below to play Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild on PC.
