I can't say this is completely unexpected, but I am still a bit on the shocked side. 2 months ago, the team behind the GameCube/Wii emulator Dolphin announced that they are going to officially be coming to Steam. Unfortunately, it seems these plans have come to a halt as the Dolphin emulator has been de-listed from Steam.

Coupled with this, Dolphin created a new post on their blog to note why it was de-listed. In their post, they mention that Nintendo issued a DMCA against the store page to Valve, who in turn, took down the store page until the matter has been settled. The team is investigating what they can do and will give a more detailed response in the near future.

While we wait to see what will happen next, you can still use Dolphin through individual downloading or, if you want it set up easily and configured for the Steam Deck, you can use EmuDeck!
