    If GameCube can be emulated I'd be willing to bet Wii could likely be emulated as well, considering their similar hardware (that's why Dolphin has Wii support)

    Running Wii games takes about twice as much power as GameCube
    And there's the whole unique controller thing that most games require which can't really be emulated with a gamepad.

    It's possible. Never said it'd work well...

    Honestly, there are a handful of must-play GC titles and you can play them already via Dolphin in HD.

    If the GC games end up getting rendered in 1080p on the Switch, then color me interested.

    Otherwise, I couldn't care less.

    The Joy-con might provide that role, otherwise Wiimotes may just work with the system.

    I seen people say it may have analog triggers due to the rumor of actually getting Gamecube VC.

    Except Nintendont isn't emulation, it's closer to a VM than an emulator; the Switch using VC would enhance the resolution like N64 games run at 480p.

    I hope the Switch has a GC joycon like attachments but I doubt it because it's Nintendo...
