Dolphin Emulator is a long standing Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator for the PC that has been in development by the emulation community for a while now. The developers of Dolphin Emulator have finally released a public version of the 5.0 update of the emulator, which was earlier available as a Release Candidate.
To celebrate the launch of 5.0 update, the developers of Dolphin Emulator have released a video showcasing the difference between the old version 4.0 and the new version 5.0. You can check it out below.
Dolphin Emulator allows users to play their legally backup copies of the Nintendo GameCube and Wii games on their PC. The added benefit of the emulation is a bump from the SD resolution of GameCube/Wii to full HD resolution, which essentially makes these games play like a HD Remaster on PC. This benefits the users who want to play their games collection in the best possible way.
If you are interested in running Dolphin Emulator on your PC, you can check out the system requirements below.
- 64-bit CPUs and Operating Systems are required.
