Dolphin is an emulator designed to play Nintendo GameCube and Wii games in full HD and 1080p from the comfort of a medium to high-spec PC. The emulator is very simple to use and is compatible with all PC controllers. The emulator also supports turbo speed, multiplayer and much more.
After a long three years of delays, the team at Dolphin has now announced the release of Dolphin 5.0 on PC and issued the following statement and video:
“After a very long wait and too many delays, we’re proud to announce Dolphin 5.0 with this release video!
Special Thanks to Sage of Mirrors and LordNed for assistance in hacking Wind Waker for the intro. Also special thanks to all the people who helped review the video over the year and half since it started production. And of course, without the amazing developers behind Dolphin, there wouldn’t have been anything to show. I’d also like to thank Nintendo, and everyone who developed the wonderful games that make up the library of the GameCube and Wii!”
The emulator prior to this was extremely stable too, but it’s nice to know that the PC will now make your old Nintendo experiences that much better with improved texture loading and upscaling. If you have a decent PC with no Nintendo console to play, this might be for you. Dolphin 5.0 is available now and is absolutely free. The games, on the other hand, you’ll need to own legally.
