Play GameCube Games on the Wii U With Nintendont

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.

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.”

Gamers Heroes will keep you updated on any future developments.

  1. Congrats may be in order for this guy. Hope he pulls it off safely. Could make WiiU much more competitive. Will make me wish I never gave my GC games to a certain friend.
    Bring on Rogue Leader, F-Zero, Luigis Mansion, Soul Clibur, and the rest. If the software risks system stability at all though, may even harm WiiUs overall reputation

  3. Seems to work a heck of a lot better than Dolphin. Along with the new Super Smash Bros this actually makes me want to get a Wii U.

    1. u could use cheat engine to speed up the fps, u might of encountered the same issue i had with some games. download cheat engine, games run buttery smooth. i got about 10-13 games using dolphin 3.0

      1. That’ll help with the few moments in games where I experience massive slowdowns, thanks! Too bad it can’t fix the ever-annoying graphical/audio errors and straight up unplayables…can’t wait for the day when we can perfectly emulate older games.

  7. Cause Wii U us just a tri-core version of the gamecube like Wii was upclocked GameCube. All 3 systems have IBM Power PC CPU, the ATI TEV GPU (tacked on programable shaders from Radeon cards on Wii U) and Macronix DSP for sound.
