It’s been almost three years since we’ve seen any substantial updates from the project, but the fifth version of the Dolphin emulator is now available for download. For those of you who may not know, Dolphin is an open-source emulator for GameCube and Wii games that allows users to play these games on their PCs with improved graphics, sound, and more. Dolphin 5.0 boasts a wide range of bug fixes and new features, including steroscopic 3D output, faster CPU emulation, and expanded native controller support. It also features a revamped netplay setup that lets users play local multiplayer titles such as Super Smash Bros. Melee online more easily.

There are a ton of other fixes and features included in the update, including fixes for the Z-freeze and ES_Launch glitches; you can check out the full list of changes on Dolphin’s website. They also released a video outlining many of the changes, which you can check out by clicking above!

Our Verdict


Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
