Cemu emulator for Mac OS

Cemu emulator for Mac OS


Cemu emulator is a experimental software to emulate Wii U applications on Mac OS device.

It is written in C++ with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for Mac desktop.

At this point Cemu can already be considered highly optimized and possible future optimizations will only arrive in small and incremental steps.

Cemu supports most online features. In order to connect to official servers some system files must be dumped from a Wii U.

Currently the DRC (GamePad), Pro Controller and Classic Controller is emulated.

Wiimotes are emulated as well (including native support).

Keyboard input + USB controllers as input devices are supported.

GamePad touch input can be controlled via left mouse click.

Gyro functionality is emulated with limitations and can be controlled via right mouse button.

Keep in mind that emulation always comes with overhead and requires a higher performance system than the emulated system.

  • CPU: quad-core 2.0+ GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB minimim (8 GB recommended)
  • OS: OS X – 10.14 (or above)
  • Storage: 32 MB minimum

For Cemu, the single core performance of your CPU (and by extension RAM speed) is the most important factor for fullspeed emulation.
