Nintendo Games Are Coming to China Via the Nvidia Shield

This partnership between NVIDIA, Nintendo and the Chinese online platform called iQiyi is what is now pushing Nintendo's games to be featured on NVIDIA's Shields throughout the Chinese market. The only announced Nintendo GameCube title so far is Super Mario Galaxy.

Because this announcement marks the first time some of these Wii games will be available in HD (Twilight Princess HD was released last year), some have speculated that Nintendo is using the Nvidia Shield to test potential Wii re-releases for the Nintendo Switch. Although his biggest legacy may be massive successes such as the Wii, some of the hands-on work he did in game development has resulted in some of the greatest moments in video game history, with Iwata playing a part in everything from Pokemon Gold and Silver through to the creation of Super Smash Bros.

With the arrival of Nintendo Wii and GameCube titles to the Nvidia Shield in China, this opens up the possibility that the games will also find their way to other Nvidia Shield devices around the world. In an unexpected turn however, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and a group of other Wii titles are now available exclusively on the Chinese version of Nvidia's set-top box, in 1080p HD.

According to industry insider Daniel "ZhugeEX" Ahmad, Nvidia will be releasing the Shield Tablet with a small batch of remastered Wii titles. They look great in action.

Extending the business relationship that brought NVIDIA technology to Nintendo Switch, some of Nintendo's most beloved Wii and Nintendo GameCube titles are officially headed to China for the first time. New Super Mario Bros. The games will run via streaming through Nvidia's Geforce Now service and will be launched in tandem with the Android-powered tablet.

The Nvidia Shield launched in China earlier this week, offering numerous same streaming capabilities that western consumers have seen from the device already. "SHIELD will bring Chinese customers a brand-new experience in gaming, AI and home entertainment with Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI system and abundant entertainment options from iQIYI".
