Dolphin (Wii)


Dolphin is an open-source emulator primarily for the GameCube video game console. It is also the first, and currently the only working Wii emulator. Dolphin provides full HD (1080p) gaming with several enhancements and features including a wide variety of controller compatibility, turbo speed, and networked multiplayer. The Dolphin emulator is still in active development with the latest versions also available as a libretro core for RetroArch. 

Unlike its near-perfect GameCube emulation capability, the emulation of Wii games is still being improved and is being supported by a very active homebrew scene. With a huge community of developers around the world, this project continues to improve and gain new features to this day. The Dolphin core is compatible with a variety of devices and has been tested on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Series S.
