CEMU version 1.5.5 will contain a lot of improvements to the performance, load times and the compatibility of a lot of popular Wii U titles like Super Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World. 

The video below shows a PC with an Intel i5 750 CPU at 4GHz and a GTX 970 emulating Super Smash Bros at almost a steady 60FPS, which is an impressive improvement compared to the older version that typically ran at around 30FPS or less with certain characters. Super Smash Bros also features greatly reduced load times, which can be up to 16x faster than the last version of Cemu.  In the Pikmin 3 footage shown the game went from 14-20 FPS to a steady 29-30 FPS.   

The main benefits of this new update are the compatibility improvements and changes in Super Mario Brothers 3D World, Xenoblade Chronicles X and Bayonetta 2. These games are now much more playable on the emulator, even on systems with relatively old CPUs. 

 

 

Right now the latest version of the CEMU emulator (1.5.5) is only available to those who back the development of this piece of software on Patreon, with the new version releasing to the public in less than a week. Right now the Team Cemu Patreon has 586 backers and raises over $2,600 a month. 

At the time of writing, version 1.5.4 is available to the public, allowing PC gamers to easily play Wii U games on PC hardware, though please bear in mind that emulation is a legal grey area.
