Cemu has come a long way in a relatively small time frame. A few years back it could barely boot any Wii U games but today it can easily manage to run a fair majority of Wii U games. When we say run, we mean that the games are completely playable and can be played from start to finish without encountering any game breaking bugs or glitches. The Wii U might not have been the best gaming handheld but it definitely had some of the best games that look and play exceptionally better on the PC using Cemu. Here are some of the best Wii U games you can play on Cemu.

The Legend Of Zelda Series


The Zelda series is undoubtedly one of the most popular games on the market and the Wii U just happens to have some of the best titles in recent memory. Cemu is the perfect choice for anyone that wants to run Zelda games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in stunning 4K at a stable 60FPS. BoTW, in particular, has experienced incredible performance updates and new features along with a variety of mods that the PC gaming community has created which makes playing it on the PC a much more enjoyable experience.

Mario Kart 8


Mario Kart 8 is by far one of the most fun racing games one can play with friends or go head to head with people online. Mario Kart has been a staple Mario game for years in which you drive Karts with your favorite Mario game characters. On Cemu, the game has managed to run at a stable 60FPS in stunning 4k. Computers with reasonably strong hardware can emulate it without any worries as well as being one of the most stable games on Cemu.

Bayonetta 2


Imagine Devil May Cry but with a faster pace and a towering dominatrix dishing out hell to all kinds of monster and angels in a fast paced hack and slash game. Bayonetta 2 is a great game for anyone that enjoys fast paced gameplay. Bayonetta 2 on Cemu runs incredibly well but there are some video stutters that will hopefully be patched in future releases.

Super Smash Bros


With a wide variety of fun and unique modes along with fast-paced fighting between your favorite Nintendo characters, Super Smash Bros is a fan favorite as well as being one of the most popular games on the Wii U. The game is so popular that it has received exceptional attention from the developers of Cemu and today runs almost perfectly in stunning 4K.

Xenoblade Chronicles X


Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the few Action RPG games on the Wii U and manages to be one of the finest at the same time. It’s widely regarded as one of the best Wii U games that you can play on Cemu. Though the emulation isn’t flawless in the current version of Cemu but it’s pretty close. You can Xenoblade Chronicles X without any issues on a powerful PC but more optimization needs to be done to make it enjoyable for everyone.
