Some Nintendo Wii games coming to NVIDIA Shield TV in 1080p

Nintendo Wii And Game Cube Games Coming to Nvidia Shield in China

Nintendo Wii And Game Cube Games Coming to Nvidia Shield in China

Earlier today it's been confirmed that a selection of Nintendo Wii and GameCube games will be released on NVIDIA Shield in China.

By bringing Wii games to the Shield TV, it's quite possible that Nintendo is testing the waters for bringing Wii and Gamecube emulation to the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo hasn't released the Switch in China, and historically doesn't directly offer its consoles for sale in the market; a subsidiary called iQue has handled China-specific variants of handheld consoles as well as a version of the N64 back in 2003.

The companies revealed that Nvidia's Android-based home console will feature ported versions of games like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and New Super Mario Bros. Another Nintendo title coming soon for the Shield TV is Super Mario Galaxy.

The Shield itself launched in China today and is now retailing for $226, with each remaster going for around $10.

NVIDIA and Nintendo have announced something this week that will make retro gamers very happy (at least in China). That seems unlikely as Nintendo would rather sell them through the Switch and these ports will work just as well on Nintendo's own hardware. Games will be available for RMB 68 ($10). But it's the Nintendo connection which is, perhaps, most surprising. It is, after all, a hybrid console built using Nvidia's Tegra platform.
