The GameCube, once a beloved console from Nintendo’s library, is now joining the ranks of other platforms with an achievement system thanks to the wonders of emulators. Starting on July 15th, GameCube titles will finally get their own achievements when played under the Dolphin emulator.

This addition brings support for a wide range of popular games like Zelda: Twilight Princess, F-Zero GX, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and many more, enriching the gaming experience by allowing players to track and share their accomplishments within these classics.

The Dolphin emulator, an actively developed emulator for GameCube and Wii games. This achievement integration might not only spark nostalgic joy but also encourage exploration into the library of lesser-known gems within the GameCube’s collection.

Would you be interested in exploring or re-experiencing your old GameCube favorites with a new layer of achievements added by the Dolphin emulator and RetroAchievements?

This is a nice excuse to go replay some gamecube games!

Feeling kinda neutral on this one. Nice that it’s added but I always liked that Nintendo games didn’t have these. I can just tell people I beat the SMS Plinko game.

Who is defining these achievements? Presumably it’s a community thing, but which communities and who has final say?

RetroAchievements has been going for a while now for several cartridge based consoles, I think anyone can define achievements (though there’s a fair level of skill required to do this), and then the community self moderates beyond that. They have a load of guidelines around what constitutes a good achievement

Sounds ideal!

This is a great update! I look forward to RE4 gaining achievements.
