Since the advent of the Wii, it’s been constantly criticized for the lack of formal HD. Of course, with some third party component cables, it can play at a measly 480p, but nothing truly impressive. Well, some shrewd hackers found a workaround for this “issue”, provided you’re willing to complete a few sketchy steps. Above is the video for the HD version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

As a note of caution, we here at Ripten don’t advocate piracy in any way, any steps taken to modify your console are of your own risk, blah, blah blah. With a Dolphin emulator for the Wii, and a legal backup of Wii games, YouTuber renebarahona managed to emulate Wii games to their full HD extent. Want more? Hit the jump for videos of Mario Kart, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in HD. There’s even more at his/her YouTube channel.
