The Dolphin GameCube & WII Emulator is notable in its specific scene, especially for its capacity to run Wii and GameCube titles in HD – that was an particularly big deal when Nintendo was still about 480p.
It’s still under continual development, and its team has come up with a rather surprising and neat update.
In addition to SD card import / export, recent updates allow full access to the Wii Shop Channel – it opens, credit can be purchased and games can be bought and downloaded. The Wii Shop – unlike online multiplayer on Wii – has remained open, and Dolphin is now so accurate that the store thinks it’s a real Wii.
It allows PC gamers to enjoy games for these two consoles in full HD (1080p) with several enhancements: compatibility with all PC controllers, turbo speed, networked multiplayer, and even more!
