The GameCube™ games library features retro classics and a variety of titles across multiple genres, making it easy to find something to suit any taste. Designed specifically with the Gamecube in mind, the small 8cm game disks are distinct from other consoles and store easily. Play solo or with friends and family with support for up to four controllers at once and split-screen capabilities. Improve your games with accessories such as exchangeable memory cards, wireless controllers and LAN adapters. The Nintendo® Wii console is also compatible with GameCube games and accessories, which can widen your options.
This video game console features the majority of familiar Nintendo characters in its gaming library, so it is a nostalgic addition to a Nintendo console repertoire. Franchises added to the Nintendo Selects list, such as Pokémon® and Mario, are available on this console. Some original GameCube games, like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, have since been re-released for the newer consoles, certifying their position as classics.
The minimum GameCube accessories necessary are one controller and one memory card, both of which can easily pack away into small storage spaces for portability. Standard handheld GameCube controllers use wires, but the official Nintendo WaveBird™ controller uses RF technology for a wireless setup. The power consumption of the WaveBird is minimal, allowing for up to 100 hours of gameplay before needing a change of batteries. The memory cards of the GameCube console are interchangeable, and there are slots for up to two cards at once, allowing for freedom of file saving. For playing multiplayer games without using split-screen technology, a LAN adapter is available. With this adapter, two separate consoles connect and the playing takes place on different screens, preventing others from seeing what you are doing.
The Nintendo GameCube is a family-friendly console that features four controller slots so multiple people can play at once. With the system's 485MHz processing power and integrated graphics chip, the GameCube console can support these four players in split-screen gameplay. The 8cm game disks are made specifically for this console and can hold up to 1.5GB of information, allowing for larger games. With a resolution support of 640x480 and allowing up to 16.7 million colors on the screen at one time, the GameCube has the ability to display the many intricate details in its games.
The Nintendo Wii system is compatible with GameCube games, giving another playing option for times when the original console is unavailable. Since it is compatible with all of the retro video game accessories without needing adapters, using the Wii console to play GameCube games is simple and convenient. The Wii system will read the game disks straight out of the box, with no downloads required, so you can start playing right away.
