Super Mario Odyssey

Summary

Super Mario Odyssey requires at least 4 GB of RAM to boot. For playable performance, a high single thread performance CPU is required since the game mainly works off of a single core. This goes in favor of Intel CPUs for emulation.

It has some graphical issues, but the game play isn’t affected for the most part. You can fully play through the game.

Please note that while the 1.3.0 update does run in the emulator, it introduces several issues such as crashes, graphical bugs, and reduced performance. It’s recommended to play the game without updates at the moment.

Hardware issues

AMD GPU users can expect graphical bugs and lower performance on this title on OpenGL. These issues are caused by the AMD’s Windows driver. Switching to Vulkan API helps with these issues, however, you will have to recompile the shaders every time you boot the game as Vulkan currently does not have a shader cache.

AMD Navi GPUs have shadow rendering issues in Vulkan due to deferred shading. this can be partially fixed with a mod (see below for a link).

Additional info

The Asynchronous GPU Emulation option, which can be enabled in Emulation > Configure > Graphics (must be enabled before loading the game), will improve performance at the cost of visual quality.

It’s recommended to disable motion controls and HD rumble in the game’s control settings as yuzu currently does not emulate those two features. This will make certain moons easier to find.

Some users may experience a game crash when the Action Guide opens during the transition from Cascade Kingdom to Sand Kingdom for the first time. To bypass this crash, you can make use of the Disable Web Applet Mod. You’ll find this mod and several others on our Switch Mods page.
