Play GameCube Games on the Wii U With Nintendont
How much would you pay to play GameCube games on Wii U? Would you say…10 million? Nintendo may have ditched support for the machine that gave us such gems as Super Smash Bros Melee and Super Mario Sunshine, but that does not mean it has gone unforgotten. One fan has found a way to get these last gen games running on the Wii U, increasing the system’s library a considerable amount.
YouTuber crediar has taken his programming skills to the Wii U with nintendont, a program that allows users to play GameCube games on the Wii U. Using the vWii interface, he is able to run games like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Mario Kart: Double Dash!! quite well. Widescreen patches and memory card emulation are also supported.
Those longing for the GameCube controller support are also covered, as the program also supports any controller that is HID compatible. Now’s the perfect time to bust out this GameCube to Wii U adapter!
As of right now the program is still in early beta status, and a release date is still TBD. As crediar puts it: “Release dates are for people who work for publishers.”
