If you want to play Wii games on your PC, here are the things you’ll need:
Wii U console key + the key of the game you want to update. Refer to our Wii U Title Key Database or you can check this by going to r/kfwu, proceed to wiki subsection and then find the keys.
A completely backed up Wii U .wud or .wux file. This is important in case you mess something up.
An emulator for your Wii U. Currently the only working Wii U emulator for PC is CEMU.
The ultimate goal is to take a totally unmodified Wii U from its stock firmware to its Coldboot Haxchi- powered Mocha Custom Firmware. While it uses homebrew as its launch point, the end goal is still Custom Firmware. Abbreviated as CFW, custom firmware enables its users to utilize more sophisticated hacks that a userland homebrew cannot do as easily, aside from its own features and functions. CFW is also easy to set up on any of your gaming consoles regardless of your region and on the most recent version.
The term homebrew in the gaming world refers to an unauthorized software where Nintendo is concerned. You can run homebrew tools, games and emulators for a wide range of older systems using such software. You can run homebrew on your gaming console for free.

Minimums system requirements:
“Currently I'm using PS4 Controller - best option for cemu IMO It has a touchpad and a gyro, just like the WiiU Gamepad. And they both actually work with Cemu using DS4 with DS4W software along with the patch to get the GYRO working. This is probably the best way to play BoTW or any Wii U games in general with Cemu.”
“DS4Windows is a portable free Open Source program that emulates Microsoft Xbox 360 controller enabling you to use SONY DualShock 4 for all PC games and programs. DS4W Sixaxis patch - web: github.com/rajkosto/ DS4Windows/releases ”
“With 8 Gigs of DDR4 memory I can run BotW @60FPS. Game has seen a whole system overhaul since last year. I remember playing @12-15 FPS on i3 with custom save games to skip the shrines which didn't used to work, no grass, no water. Feels good finally playing it with Clarity and immersing myself into the glory of the lands of Hyrule.”
