Dolphin developer, Pierre Bourdon, and fail0verflow show off Dolphin running on the Nintendo Switch running Linux – Get ready to play GameCube/Wii games on the go (if don’t mind some frameskip!)


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    I lol’d seeing Yuzu running as a Switch homebrew, devs are crazy, that’s why we love them.

    just get a gpd win 2 if you can afford it

  12. Ferky says:

    If you install Linux, Will you lost Nintendo switch firmware?

  13. Destouches says:

    Excellent news !

    Ikaruga or Sonic Battle should run, not the most demanding games.
    Rogue Leader/Rebel Strike or Metroid Prime, on the other hand…

    Hacked WiiU runs GC iso natively (even on the gamepad !), still the best way to enjoy them on a semi portable imo.

    What about ps2 emulation? Think KH2, SWBFII would be two great editions for it

  15. thatguy says:

    why does it say Zelda Twilight Princess under an image of wind waker?

  16. Charles Fasano says:

    A true portable GameCube. Now I just need $300 to buy a switch.

    So… if I’m at 4.0.1 should I stay put or update?
