    Sorry, I've missed that. Well that's weird, they should've included it. Maybe they'll do that in the update.

    Pirating, emulators including Game Cube, Wii, and Wii U. Since Wii U can emulated Game Cube thanks to Nintendont. So why not Switch too ? :)

    Really hope so. At least Fire Emblem Warriors will feature dual audio so... I guess there's still something to... y'know, hope.

    Well FE had the same warning on the trailer, but at the Japan Expo (in my country) they sais it was dual audio. So it is kind of confusing

    Mostly since the switch's components are similar to the nvidia sheild's, it would be nice to see a branch of Dolphin Emu coming to the switch. Other tha that, playing quake on this thing would be awesome.

    No it wouldn't be great to play on because it has no analog triggers.

    Gamecube emulator is the thing I want most, having Skies of Arcadia & Tales of Symphonia on the go would be amazing, not to mention Pokemon Colosseu, XD Gale of Darkness, & the many other GC titles I never got to play as a kid/teen.

    If we could get Wii games running on it too, which I could see for some titles and definetely not for others, that'd be amazing. Though hasn't there been a few games that the Switch has already demonstrated it can do screen pointing with the Joycons?

    Many other emulators, and admittedly I'd be likely to pirate some games, and purchase others. Homebrew stuff would be nice aswell, video players, music players, browser, all that good stuff.

    So TL:DR I'm looking for a mixed bag of stuff.

    Short answer:
    Because Nintendont is not an emulator.

    Long answer:
    Both Wii (even the models stripped of the controller and memory card ports) and Wii U contain hardware that can run Gamecube games natively (which Nintendont utilizes).
    GC, Wii and Wii U are all based on PPC architecture. The Switch on the other hand is based on the ARM architecture and therefore not meant to natively run GC games.
    You might be better off trying to port an ARM version of Dolphin over to the Switch, but that would still need lots of optimization to run at full speed.

    if we could somehow emulate the original wii on the switch, the joyconso would make it perfect.

    but that won't happen

    That won't change the language in an NTSC game though, and not everyone can read/understand Japanese.

    Emulating Games Nintendo is too stupid enough to not put on VC.
