The Triforce is an arcade system board developed jointly by Namco, Sega, and Nintendo, with the first games appearing in 2002. The name "Triforce" is a reference to Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series of games, and symbolized the three companies' involvement in the project. The system hardware is based on the Nintendo GameCube with several differences, like provisions for add-ons such as Sega's GD-Rom system, NAND memory, and upgradeable RAM modules. As with most arcade systems, each Triforce game has its own custom peripherals and functions.

The main Dolphin branch cannot currently play Triforce games. See the forum and the Triforce Branch for details about development.

Triforce Compatibility List[edit]

According to the Dolphin wiki conventions all compatibility ratings are for the master branch of Dolphin only. Since the master branch cannot currently run Triforce games, all Triforce titles receive 1 star in compatibility rating. This situation will not change in the foreseeable future so the ratings have been protected to prevent mistaken edits.
