GameCube Virtual Console on Nintendo Switch

A brand new rumor just surfaced that GameCube Virtual console will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Not only will we be able to play GameCube titles on the Switch, but there are already several titles smoothly running and ready for release.

This report was originally released by EuroGamer and this rumor was revealed to them via 3 separate sources. Supposedly, three Nintendo titles are running efficiently. This includes: Luigi’s Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, and Smash Bros. These are 3 of the biggest titles ever released on the GameCube which makes this rumor very exciting to say the least. To top it off, supposedly the next title in the works in Animal Crossing GameCube.

One thing to note about Animal Crossing on the GameCube is the fact that it was originally released with support for several NES titles. Currently these NES titles are rumored to running and working on the Switch virtual console. This means we could possibly emulate a NES game on a GameCube emulator on a Nintendo Switch.. wow that was a mouthful.

Another interesting piece of this rumor is that Nintendo Switch Virtual Console is being programmed by Nerd, the infamous developers of the NES Mini. So maybe we will see a full on NES virtual console at some point. Especially with how well the NES Mini has sold. If only I could have got one… yeah, I’m looking at you scalpers!

Keep in mind, this is a RUMOR. Even though it has been “confirmed” by 3 separate sources there is always a chance this may not be real. This rumor does appear to be true from everything we’ve seen leaked so far.

One theory I personally have is that we may end up getting Wave Race via Virtual console considering the recent trademark request. While this would be great, I am still hoping we get a brand new Wave Race title on the Nintendo Switch.

In regards to the GameCube virtual console, if the rumors are true, what game would you like to have released? I think of GameCube games as Pokemon.. I gotta have them all.
