Nintendo GameCube and Wii games are coming to Steam

There are still so many incredible Wii and GameCube games that are yet to be ported over to the Switch, which is making it increasingly difficult to enjoy some of Nintendo’s greatest blasts from the past.

However, that struggle will soon come to an end for those with a PC or Steam Deck. As Eurogamer reports, Dolphin Emulator is releasing on Steam later this year, allowing users to play whatever classics they want with modern controllers and 4K resolution support.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of the greatest GameCube titles of all time, and contains one of our favourite moments from the entire Zelda series. Take a look below.

Dolphin Emulator is your one-way ticket to nostalgia if you're looking to relive classics from the big N's cube-shaped and motion controlled consoles,” the emulator's official description on Steam reads. “Return to an era of gaming before the advent of microtransactions and experience a diverse library of thousands of titles that were released for these consoles over a span of 15+ years. Dolphin Emulator allows these classic games to be reborn into the modern era with support for 4K displays, modern controllers, and much, much more. All of this, fully Open Source and free to download.”

It should be noted that the emulator doesn’t come with any games included - it’s a tool for running games that have been dumped into a compatible format. Playing them this way comes with loads of perks, though - multiplayer games can be played online with friends thanks to the emulator’s built-in netplay, you can use save states, and use community-made mods to spice things up.

In a blog post on Dolphin’s website, the devs wrote: “We’re pleased to finally tell the world of our experiment. This has been the product of many months of work, and we look forward to getting it into users' hands soon!”

Dolphin Emulator is currently set to hit Steam at some point during Q2 this year, so there’s not long to wait.
