Nintendo is already working within the mobile smartphone and tablet market when it comes to their video game IPs. The company has already launched a Super Mario video game that acts similar to an endless runner along with a Fire Emblem installment.
However, it seems that gamers can enjoy the entire catalog of GameCube video games with some of the latest flagship devices without any problems. Recently, YouTube content creator, GuruAidTechSupport, managed to film the Dolphin emulator on the latest Samsung handset, the Galaxy S8+.
Surprisingly, the video games ran smooth with the S8+ and it has us curious as to if Nintendo could eventually open up their past catalog of video game titles officially for the smartphone market.
There’s a lot of gray areas when it comes to emulators, but seeing The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Mario Sunshine operate without any issues may have some gamers intrigued at upgrading their smartphones sooner than later.
The Dolphin emulator has been a popular source for PC gamers to enjoy both the Nintendo GameCube and Wii video game catalog, however, on Android, gamers can download a Dolphin emulator application which would allow them to play GameCube video games.
It’s not unveiled just how long a battery could last while enjoying these titles on the latest flagship smartphones and likewise, the on-screen controls could bring a learning curve for players who are more familiar with the physical GameCube controllers.
Regardless, take a look at the Dolphin demo video for yourself which is posted above.
