    I present to you Cemu. World's first Wii U emulator capable of running and rendering commercial games!

    Quick facts:
    • Can run encrypted Wii U images (WUD) and RPX/RPL files
    • Internal resolution is 1920x1080 (if supported by game)
    • For controller input see : https://github.com/Exzap/Cemu
    • Contains basically no optimizations. Expect slow framerates and long load times.
    • Windows x64 only (other platforms may be supported later)
    • Requires OpenGL 3.3
      • Tested on NVIDIA: Runs fine on most recent driver
      • Tested on Intel: Garbled output but runs if OpenGL version is supported
      • Untested on AMD
    Download:
    https://github.com/Exzap/Cemu/releases

    FAQ:
    Can the controller be configured?
    Not yet, it's locked to using the GamePad via keyboard. Proper controller support will come in a future release.

    Can I run extracted games?
    No, when launching a Wii U executable directly (.rpx) no external files are supported. If you want to run a game, it needs to be in raw dump format (WUD or ISO).

    Is there supposed to be sound?
    No, audio is not yet supported.

    What's next?
    The current plan is to release new updates at least every two weeks. A more detailed roadmap is in the works.

    No one has scrubbed Xenoblade Chronicles X(J) yet?

    Dang Super Smash Bros. is the second largest game on that list. I am betting Xenoblade will be the largest.

    This emulator came out of nowhere and it can already play commercial games, this was unexpected.

    The slow FPS is understandable, this is a first release and it does not have any optimization yet but I'm amazed this emulator is already this advanced.

    I remember seeing similar videos 2006 on YouTube of Wind Waker being emulated on Dolphin 1.03 on Windows XP x64, now 9 years later Dolphin is awesome and can play almost anything satisfyingly.

    Maybe in 9 years Cemu and the rest is as good shape as Dolphin is today.

    Greate news. Something new to test.
    How about Dolphin, is there any Wii U emulation in progress in Dolphin? It's been a while.

    HOTPLUGGING/AFTERPLUGGING for all devices! Please don't start the trends of lazy devs like Squall and Dolphin :p
    (*bring it* >:) )
    I hope it progresses as fast as ppsspp did.

    @Yelo: I may can make it. Afterall, I only want to collect 22 games so far. Glad they still have scrub sizes. Wish this was true for sony.
