It was supposed to be released soon.
Dolphin, the Nintendo Wii console emulator, will not be released on Steam. Nintendo itself prevented this: according to the developers, the company sent a prohibition letter to the store, Steam obeyed him and removed the emulator page.
The Dolphin developers planned to release the Steam version of the emulator in May or June. Now the project team is studying options, in the near future the developers promise to tell how they will proceed.
According to PC Gamer, in a letter to Valve, Nintendo’s lawyers cited copyright infringement. If the developers of Dolphin believe they are not violating NIntendo’s rights, they may file a counter-notice, in which case Nintendo has the right to sue them.
Nintendo representatives believe that the creators of the Dolphin emulator illegally use Wii cryptographic keys and thus bypass the protection of the console.
In the past, PC Gamer notes, emulator developers have won court cases against console makers. For example, the court ruled that PlayStation emulators do not infringe Sony’s rights, even when using the console’s BIOS and firmware.
Dolphin can still be downloaded from the project’s official website.
