Dolphin is a free and open-source gaming console emulator software capable of playing GameCube games. It is also the first and (as of 2022) only emulator for the Wii video game console. Dolphin is also available as a libretro core for the multi-console RetroArch emulator.

Initially released back in 2004 as a Windows freeware, Dolphin was the first GameCube emulator to successfully work on commercial games. The development was highly received and supported by many people for its high compatibility and steady development progress. The project subsequently gained support for Wii emulation. Over the years, Dolphin was ported to Linux, Mac, and even Android devices. Dolphin has also been tested to work on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S via its RetroArch core.
