Dolphin, a Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator was first released in 2003 and has been updated continuously for the next 20 years. Dolphin now has its own Steam page and will be available on Valve’s store in the coming months. The developer of the OatmealDome emulator announced on Twitter: “We will release Early Access in Q2 2023 (April to June). More details will be revealed closer to the launch time. And we will support Steam Deck.”
Dolphin can already be added to Steam and the Steam Deck, but officially bringing the emulator to Steam will make the installation process simpler for new users. The emulator can run GameCube and Wii games with many enhancements including increased resolution and frame rate, widescreen support, HD textures, online play, and fast save states. While it’s not illegal to use emulators – the popular multi-system emulator RetroArch has been on Steam for years and Dolphin has been around for two decades without being forced by Nintendo – but users are breaking the law by downloading image files from GameCube and Wii.
