Zelda Glitch Hunters Discover a GameCube Emulator That Could Run on the Switch
At the very least, a GameCube game could virtually run on the Switch

Last year, it was announced that a special licensing agreement between Nvidia and Nintendo would allow the Nvidia Shield selling in China to have some old 'Nintendo' games from the Gamecube and Wii libraries, and its been discovered that the GC ones are emulated, which basically means in the near future we could see that emulator running on the Nintendo Switch either officially or unofficially since the Shield uses the same Tegra X1 processor as the Switch does.

The hidden Switch tribute to Iwata's passing has been scrubbed clean from the latest Switch firmware release!

Soon after the Switch was released, scene developers discovered there was hidden executable code called 'FLOG', and it turned out to be triggered on Iwata's passing to better life, and it was fully playable version of NES Golf with even two-player Joy-Con support!

Some decades ago, gaming was not what we experience today. It has undergone serious but positive changes.

Back in 1979 when it was all about the 8-bit nostalgia, people used to enjoy different products from the video games that came to be in 1983. For example, much has changed with respect to all sort of games be it video games or online casino games. Every aspect of gaming is now changed. Let’s discuss further.
