I'm looking for this collection, not for the games themselves but the way how they been ported on the switch
is it emulation like GBA, SNES etc on 3DS or new build

We don't know if the games will be emulated or ported. My hunch is all or some of them have been ported.
Agree, emulation is just not stable enough on those systems. They would have to do so much back end work for only one title each, seems like a bad call.

Based on DF's analysis of Galaxy on the Shield TV in China, that has some performance issues, and that was running on the same Tegra X1 as the Switch but at 2Ghz. Nintendo would certainly not force the Switch to run at that speed during gameplay. This makes me believe that the game (and Sunshine) may not be emulated on the Switch.

N64 games area already emulated we have retroarch that can play N64 games (not 100% perfect but emulated)
Gamecube + Wii games can be played via Lakka (currently cant use dock mode) and no Horizon option yet

These things can already be done currently no new dev is working on a proper gamecube + wii emulator for the horizon

What's there to figure out though? Couldn't we just exchange "rom:/MarioSunshine/Super_Mario_Sunshine_Stardust-trimmed.gcm" with any other gamecube-.gcm rom?
Maybe prototype through LayeredFS and all that jazz.
