    There's a libretro port of 4DO https://github.com/libretro/4do-libretro
    Doesn't run on Wii but according to http://www.libretro.com/index.php/in-the-run-up-to-retroarch-1-1-whats-new-pt-2/
    It's still being worked on and will probably be supported in the future.
    See where it says: "– Make it big-endian compatible so that it can run on big-endian consoles and old PowerPC Macs." Whether they target Wii or not it should still work then, but I would not expect it to run full speed especially on the 3D games.

    The Wii Is Fully Capable of running 3DS games, of course when it comes to hardware. But emulation will be quite a challenge......Heck, i might try and port 4DO or 3DO on over!
