NVidia Shield to Carry Nintendo Wii and GameCube Titles in China

NVidia Shield to Carry Nintendo Wii and GameCube Titles in China

If you happen to live in China and want to get your hands on one of these, it'll cost you RMB 1499 ($227).

Nvidia is making similarly major efforts to adapt its product to China. In time, the NX would be revealed as the Nintendo Switch, and Nvidia confirmed the console would be powered by its popular Tegra chip.

Not only that but each game will run at 1080p, meaning they'll look much nicer than their Wii originals. Since the Wii games are not available on the Nintendo Switch, Shield could turn out to be the best alternative.

This all comes to be thanks to an official partnership between Nvidia, Nintendo and Chinese firm iQiyi.

Nvidia and Nintendo announced they will be partnering to deliver Wii and GameCube titles to China via the Nvidia Shield.

It's unlikely that the partnership will ever expand beyond China as it's simply a fast and low risk way for Nintendo to enter the Chinese market and give its games a foothold. This has ensured that gamers eager to play a new version of Mario Kart can only do so if they buy a Nintendo machine. Wii, and Punch-Out!. All three games were originally available for the Wii almost a decade ago at a measly 480p resolution. Now we'll be those limits pushed even further with new games from Nintendo, at least in China anyway. The games in question include Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. It has been created to work with Baidu's DuerOS conversational artificial intelligence (AI) system and entertainment options from IQIYI.

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival consolemakers. For players looking for the motion-based controls, a Wii-style remote is also possibly coming with the Shield to capture motion-style play.
