    Hi guys, recently I bought the Xeno modchip that let me run iso game on my gamecube downloaded on normal dvd.
    I was wondering if there was a possibility to convert wii game like Super Smash bros brawl or Super smash bros wii U to iso that could be run on my Gamecube!?

    Or if some programmers already released a custom Super smash bros game with all recent wii U change compatible with Gamecube.

    The same reason you can't play Ps4 games on an Ps1.
    Hardware limitations.

    The Wii U is significantly more powerful than the Wii, and the Wii is significantly more powerful than the GameCube, So of course not.

    Will a PC from 1996 play Witcher 3?

    Yes, actually Nintendo is doing that themselves.
    They are re-releasing all Wii U and Wii Games on GameCube now, because they really want nothing more than to cripple their current console even further.
    and the best thing about it?
    It's not just free, but they will give you 10$ per game and also free Ice-cream.

    Can you play Zelda Wind Waker HD on Game boy ?

    You can't play a game on an older plateform, unless it's RE-developped entirely with worse graphics and new interface.
    It can't be "converted", it need to be "ported" which means developers have to RECREATE a new game based on the same story, but with the target console's power and capability.

    For example :

    Official port:
    Wii Xenoblade Chronicles -> 3DS Xenoblade Chronicles (not really an older gen, but less powerful). This game has been entirely redeveloped for 3DS hardware and downgraded (graphics resolution has been lowered, etc.)

    Unofficial port:
    PS1 Final Fantasy 7 -> NES Final Fantasy 7

    I'll close this thread as it will result only in flaming and sarcasm with this kind of questions.
