    • All three are emulated

    • Galaxy and Sunshine run under a Wii and GameCube emulator named "hagi"(?) possibly made by NERD (Nintendo of Europe division)

    • Mario 64 is running under an N64 emulator

    • Galaxy in particular is really interesting. It appears they recompiled the original code to run natively on the Switch CPU, but everything else (GPU/Audio) is running in the emulator.

    • The Wii/GC emulators use Vulkan

    • Sunshine is stored as a gcm file - should be replaceable
    About the N64 emulator:

    • Shindou Pack ROM is used

    • Texture, code, and text translation patches are applied on the fly

    • First person camera has inverted controls vs original

    • Uses Vulkan API

    Hope this Opens the door for rom injection to run other GC and Wii Games

    update: some games tested with emulators:

    Data miners and modders are currently working to dissecting Mario 3D collection to add more N64/GC/Wii games

    Working at the moment:
    Zelda Wind Waker (USA)
    Mario Kart Double Dash (USA)
    Metroid Prime (USA)
    Zelda Twilight Princess (USA)
    Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (USA)
    Luigi's Mansion (USA)
    Zelda OOT/MQ (USA)
    Soulcalibur 2 (USA)
    Tales of Symphonia (USA)
    Star Fox Adventures (USA)
    F-Zero GX (USA)
    Paper Mario - TTYD (USA)
    Pokemon XD - GOD (USA)

    Nintendo probably has plans with this emulator for n64 online. Mario 3D all Stars is probably a test run with it. Wii and gamecube might also soon be a thing for the switch.

    Edit
    Not 100% but I think the only gamecube emulator on switch before this, is only on the android side.

    nerd = nintendo of Europe research and development? it would explain the fact that the sunshine gcm is the pal version or so I've heard.

    the EU release has 50/60 Hertz, for usa well its the US release

    i am sure in a few days ill see all my favorite GC gamnes on a Russian switch site, they always repacked all other systems whenever a stable emulator was released

    looking forward to play F-Zero X, Mario Kart double Dash, Paper Mario

    now i only want them to release Zelda Twilight Princes HD, i am sure it will get a release on next Zelda Anniversary

    I don't know about twilight princess, but there's a rumor going around the skyward sword is being remastered. it appeared on some website that sells games, then was quickly removed. I'm sure nintendo is either going to do a price cut or has something big planned for november to compete with the ps5 and series x especially with the series s being the same price.

    Piracy Community tested some games and they worked on nintendo in-house emulator, no video proof to validate the claim, only a list of working titles, ill check the forums in a few days and see if they start posting videos or sharing Atmosphere config files to run and replace games and update here

    i wont post links to confirmed working games, only confirm they work with video

    its possible to dump the game from xci and convert it into a nsp, and then extract the romfs and compile it back to an nsp, that means u can dump the nca files and modify the contents then rebuild it.
    in simple terms, play any rom, only a matter of time for the community to test the configurations to run other games

    keep in mind the game was out for 24 hours, in a few days all will be revealed

    edit, there are several topics about this, i at the time i was writing it there was only 1 topic {R&D }research, that OP shared info how to setup Atmosphere to replace roms

    id rather have someone recompile the GC roms into NSP with the Emulator which is what is being done, like what we used to do on Wii U and 3DS

    the wii u is a fantastic emulation machine. I wouldn't regret it if I were you. I play mine daily, because it helps me relax.

    64 and Sunshine are emulated while Galaxy is partially emulated.

    I was very curious about if this collection was just purely emulation, seems my assumptions were partially correct. While GC games ARE indeed playable on the switch through RetroArch and a little overclocking (in most cases), it would be really cool to see officially made emulators play other games of the system. Especially Wii games, as those are quite difficult to get working in a playable state on the Switch without some serious modding. Heh... maybe one day I can look forward to playing MKWii on my Switch on the go! :P (Even better, CTGP!)

    I think one of the engineers behind the retroarch switch port ruled out injecting roms into All Stars. I guess nintendo put their time and energy into preventing that rather than make better ports.
