    Will this open some doors for spoofing shield on the Switch?

    It's Wii games right? So it's probably an emulator running them.

    It is no doubt an emulator, that's why OP is asking if the emulator could be used on Switch.

    I doubt it is an emulator.
    It is quite probably ported and recompiled, after all Nintendo has the source code.

    If that is the case, then sure they could be running them on Dolphin in the remote server, I don't think there is any law that prevents that given the GPLv2+ license. Only if they happen to make some change to the emulator source code, they should publish those changes, but who says changes need to be made?

    I tried but it keeps telling me it might be some spam post, maybe because my post count is low?

    The news is all over kotaku and many gaming and tech sites even the verge
