Wii emulator so accurate you can buy games from the Wii Shop Channel

Third-party emulation has always been a dicey issue for hardware and software manufacturers alike as it offers access to content people may not legally own, but that’s about to change in the case of Wii emulator Dolphin, which has become so adept at emulating Nintendo’s decade-old console that it can access the official Wii Shop Channel and directly purchase games from Nintendo.

“Have you ever wanted to put your credit card information into an emulator? Well now you can,” one of the Dolphin devs said in a YouTube video demonstrating this new feature.

As for the benefits of Dolphin, it upscales Wii games into HD resolutions, whereas the console itself was beholden to 480p. Now you can play games like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario Galaxy, or Xenoblade Chronicles in a way that looks more glorious than ever.
