Nintendo Is Bringing Classic Wii Games To The Nvidia Shield In China

A selection of Wii and Gamecube games are available for the shield - at present, only in China.

What this means is, if you own an Nvidia Shield and reside in China, you can download and play the aforementioned games with Super Mario Galaxy - one of last generation's greatest platformers coming shortly to the Nvidia Shield.

When it comes to protecting their intellectual property, Nintendo can be rather particular about that, such as creating programs that YouTubers need to be part of in order to post videos on Nintendo games.

If these Wii games run at 1080p, a resolution the Wii didn't actually support, they'll be crisp running in the Switch's Handheld mode which only requires 720p output. The Shield TV itself costs 1499 yuan, or about $225. It's only in China, where Shield TV is launching for the first time, but it's an official tie-up between Nvidia and Nintendo, which could offer some hope, however narrow, that this could make its way to other Shield hardware around the world.

Nintendo and NVIDIA have previously worked together on the popular Nintendo Switch console, which uses NVIDIA's Tegra chip.

He added, "We have previously researched the possibility of selling our products in China, and that effort continues as we consider bringing Nintendo Switch to the Chinese market".

Nvidia is making similarly major efforts to adapt its product to China. Who wouldn't want to play Twilight Princess in 1080p, though?
