List of Nintendo GameCube games with 480p and 16:9 support

First generation GameCubes feature a digital A/V out capable of progressive scan.

The following is a list of Nintendo GameCube games with support for 480p (progressive scan) display mode, also known as enhanced definition. It also indicates those titles which support 16:9 (widescreen) mode.

In order to benefit from this support, it is necessary to use either a GameCube console equipped with a digital A/V output port (model DOL-001), or a Wii console. In both cases, a component video cable and a supporting television is required.[1] However, support for component video was removed with the DOL-101 revision of the GameCube hardware in May, 2004.[2] As the official Nintendo GameCube Component Video Cable was discontinued at the same time, it is nowadays difficult to obtain.

When progressive scan is used for the first time, or if it is ever turned off, the B button needs to be held down as the game boots. This will display a prompt, giving the player the option to turn progressive scan on or off by selecting either "Yes" or "No". The next time a progressive scan compatible game is played, it is not necessary to hold down the B button as the system remembers this setting and will automatically display the prompt.

Only games produced for NTSC systems will directly support this mode. To enable progressive scan on PAL systems, there is the need of an alternate bootloader (to force an NTSC signal for compatible PAL games or to bypass the region lock for NTSC games). Datel's Freeloader or a modchip can be used.

First generation Wii systems (RVL-001) are capable of outputting 480p for compatible GameCube games. When any GameCube game is played on a Wii console connected with component cables and set to 480p mode, the prompt will always automatically appear. Progressive scan compatible games on PAL systems, need an alternate bootloader, due to the (naturally) missing option to force an NTSC signal (for compatible PAL games) and region locking (for NTSC games). Since Datel's Freeloader has been blocked with System Update 3.3, Wii Homebrew Applications or a modchip should be used.
