The GameCube may not have been very successful in terms of sales, but it was actually home to many amazing first-hand titles. To this day, many of them are still essentially locked to the same Nintendo platform. This includes games like Eternal Darkness, F-Zero GX, and even third-party hits like Sega’s Phantasy Star Online.

If you’ve given up hope of the GameCube library coming back to a Nintendo platform soon, you needn’t worry, as there are other ways to relive the glory days of the fancy purple system. Video game developer and YouTuber Modern Vintage Gamer recently took a look at Dolphin’s “massive update” (version 1.1.2) on Xbox Series X|S, including the new interface while showcasing series like Metroid Prime.

This latest update gives the GameCube and Wii emulator a full user interface on Microsoft console hardware, making it easier than ever to set up and play. Basically, you no longer have to configure Dolphin settings on a PC and then copy them to the system. According to some of the patch notes, there is now a “full settings menu for graphics and settings” and the GameCube controller defaults have also been fixed.

There’s even the ability to enable the GameCube’s broadband adapter to play online games like PSO, you can activate cheats, and resolutions can now be increased up to 5K (5120x 4224), with additional graphics settings on offer. MVG sums it up by saying it’s an “awesome” update for Dolphin on Xbox.
