Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity New Video Shows Demo Running at 8k Resolution on PC


The recently released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity playable demo can already be played on PC thanks to the Ryujinx emulator at 4K resolution and beyond.

A new video shared by BSoD Gaming on YouTube shows how the demo can run at 8K resolution with a more than acceptable performance. There are still some glitches here and there, but this definitely bodes well for when the full game will release later this month.
