3x amounts to 1920x1584 in dolphin so I would assume it would be the same
Yeah, that seems to be the case:

Based on our tests, Nintendo and Nvidia's emulation work has a lot in common with Xbox One X's enhancement of Xbox 360 games, in that Super Mario Galaxy benefits from a 3x increase in resolution on the X and Y axis, resulting in a 9x boost to pixel count overall. That yields a curious 1920x1404 resolution - a 30 per cent boost over standard 1080p that's downscaled to the display output.

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

Also I loved MKWii, screw the haters :)

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 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.

Whys does everything has to be on the switch?
With MK8D available, how many people would even buy MKWii? Come on, now.

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

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.

It's more just the fact that there are these hd ports of wii games, not on the switch.
