Being one of the few Nintendo Switch-exclusive games that are great to play in 4K 60 FPS. But unfortunately, the game is locked at 30 FPS and 900p resolution even when the console’s docked. However, there is a way to play Super Mario Odyssey on PC in 4K 60 FPS via the Yuzu and Ryujinx emulator.  

As a gamer technically you can run the game on any Nintendo Switch emulator of their choice. However, it has found the Yuzu emulator to have the best performance and most straightforward installation process for Super Mario Odyssey.  

This emulator also has an official mods page that users can download to alter their gameplay experience. In spite of, these mods come preinstalled with the emulator, so users would need a third-party website for more mods (and sometimes that mean trust).
