Emulator Within An Emulator Creates Almost Perfect Pokemon

We missed this earlier in the month, but the talented team behind the Dolphin emulator have done something very cool: they have got N64games working on the GC/Wii emulator by running their virtual console versions.

While Pokemon Snap might not be the most exciting game to show off, it’s done with good reason: the photography game requires depth effects for its gameplay, and any kind of visual or engine glitches in the emulation would make playing it impossible.

Yet here it is, running like a dream. Meaning not only can Dolphin now run N64 games, it can do it better than most actual N64 emulators can! (Though to be fair, development on most N64 games is nowhere near as active or as recent as Dolphin’s work).


  • Nintendo is still scrambling to sell the potential of the gamepad, and where is pokemon snap 2?!

    • I would buy a Wii U if Pokemon Snap 2 was released. I wouldn’t care how much trouble I got in from the wife either. She doesn’t understand I MUST HAVE IT!

  • That’s sad that n64 games aren’t being worked on as much as gamecube emulators T_T.
    Still very cool though!

  • you could still go deeper, pokemon stadium on n64 allows you to play gbc pokemon carts from inside the n64
