    These Wii/GC ports are just emulations of the original games with new UI, btw.

    More than full HD, they're 3x original resolution, I think.

    So did Nintendo make their own emulator? Is it better than Dolphin?

    This emulator is made by Nvidia Lightspeed and it's better than Dolphin on the Shield, iirc.

    3x amounts to 1920x1584 in dolphin so I would assume it would be the same

    Would be cool to have Nintendo to support Switch with some retro rereleases like this...

    I think they might but they'll either be sold at retail too or just on the eShop as "new" games rather than Virtual Console.

    Mario Galaxy would be nice but there would be no point in porting an older version of Mario Kart that's inferior in every way to Mario Kart 8.

    Wow, it proves what the Switch could do if these games made it across as remasters.

    Also I loved MKWii, screw the haters :)

    It would be a waste if they aren't. I never expected Switch to be able to emulate Wii games at >HD resolutions but if since Nvidia Shield can... impressive stuff.

    Yeah i was referring to the emulator in general, not MKWii specifically. So many Wii/GameCube games i would love to play in HD officially.

    Why is the "lap" word in the upper-right corner of the UI (near 1/3) replaced by a parallelogram?

    Why are people begging for Mario Kart Wii, when there's a superior in every way (with online) version of Mario Kart on Switch?

    Port begging is truly out of control here.

    There's no way these don't eventually come to switch at some point


    Btw is there anyway to get these on a non Chinese shield? Been thinking of picking one up at some point

    This always confuses me, are they talking about a TV or Tablet because there's also a Nvidia Shield Tablet which I have but every time I see it mentioned they're talking about some sort of TV or something.

    I think people are impatiently waiting and begging for the GameCube/Wii emulator...that is running Galaxy and Kart Wii and stuff on the Nvidia Shield in China...to be released on the Switch so we can buy/play all GC/Wii games on the Switch through whatever VC type service they plan on implementing.

    This isn’t really about people begging to play Mario Kart Wii on the Switch right now..

    Because they want to have other games from the Gamecube/Wii library available on Switch. Which this emulator should facilitate.

    How has Nintendo not brought these ports to Switch yet? They look so good and it’d be easy money.

    With MK8D available, how many people would even buy MKWii? Come on, now.

    They are not ports. They are being emulated. But yes hopefully they will be offering the same to Switch owners in good time.

    I don't think expecting everything on Switch is all that reasonable.

    But expecting Nintendo games on Switch is reasonable.

    The Gamecube and Wii library is far bigger than just MKWii, dunno why you'd ignore all the other games.

    Have you missed all the people clamoring for GCN/Wii/ ANY type of VC on Switch? When the games people want as a VC game on Switch are actively being emulated with enhancements on a system extremely similar to Switch, of course fans are going to be annoyed and want them on Switch as well.

    It’s not about Mario Kart Wii. Super Mario gamaxy and Twilight Princess were also already emulated on the shield in this manner.
     
  43. I swear they better bring this emulator to the Switch and start releasing Gamecube and Switch games. Metroid Prime on the go is all I need really.

    So does this version have motion controls removed?
     
  49. Is the Mario Kart series even popular for speedrunning? I know it is for individual races, but I don't believe complete runs are as popular. The Shield's improved loading times are not important for the former.

    Are you really asking why people would want emulated HD versions of Gamecube and Wii games on Switch?
