Wii Games Now on Android Devices Thanks to a Clever Hack

Want to play Wii games on your Android tablet? Well, one man has figured out how to play Wii games on his Android tablet. We aren’t sure why, but the deed is done.

Using the Splashtop Remote Desktop App, which remotely connects and allows you to access your computer via VNC, a Dolphin Emulator, and a wireless Xbox 360 controller, Obiwan222222 got the job done.

Of course there is no Wiimote needed to play these games on Android devices. So what else did he do to make this work? Well he connected the wireless remote to his ASUS Eee Pad Transformer’s keyboard dock, used the Dolphin Emulator to run the Wii, then he used the Splashtop Remote Desktop App to connect to the device running the Dolphin emulator. It’s all pretty straightforward. Why didn’t I think of this first? Probably because I’d rather play PS3 and Xbox 360 games. He did a fantastic job though.
