Samsung’s Galaxy S8 already hacked to play GameCube classics
Its no question that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are phenomenally powerful devices irrespective of the variant. Considering their power, someone decided to see if the device could support popular video game titles not originally meant for smartphones.
A YouTuber named GuruAidTechSupport has shown that devices really can support serious video games. Although you might need really tiny fingers to play them with the onscreen buttons. Will these devices run the games with Bluetooth controllers? Sadly that’s a question he didn’t answer. Maybe one of our readers will give it a shot.
The games demonstrated on the device are:
- Super Smash Bros Melee
- Super Mario Sunshine
- Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
Using an emulator named Dolphin Emulation, the YouTuber was able to run the games on the device. As you can see in the uploaded video, playing the games is a fluid experience. He demonstrated it on a demo device at Target and he managed to not get caught, pretty lucky considering the possible consequences.
Therefore, its no doubt that GameCube titles running flawlessly on a Galaxy S8 is a great news, we doubt we’ll ever officially head the company declare support for these games. If you want to see it for yourself, here’s the video given below:
