NVIDIA Brings SHIELD Console And Remastered Nintendo GameCube, Wii Games To China

Nvidia officially announced that the Shield TV in China will run New Super Mario Bros. The games are from the Wii and the GameCube eras and include New Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Punch-Out. All of these games have been remastered in 1080p, meaning they should look a lot better on modern TVs than they did back on the Wii, and they sell for 68 yuan - about $10. While this does mean the Shield can comfortably play Wii games, it's hard to gauge if Nintendo will bring games to Shield in the United Kingdom, or simply reserve them exclusively for Switch instead. The Shield TV itself costs 1499 yuan, or about $225.

Naturally with the Nvidia Shield being a Android tablet, it will likely only be a matter of time until these games get side-loaded on to other Android-based devices so it makes sense to enter the market cautiously with ports of older Wii games.

We'll just have to wait and see if these versions see ports to the Nintendo Switch, which uses the same Nvidia Tegra X1 GPU, or if they'll remain exclusive to China.

It adds a new area called West Side Pier, which (as well as the usual open world activities) will feature two new modes of play. Thankfully, Ubisoft has released the complete patch notes to Update 1.8, and fans can find them in full right here .

The companies have yet not clarified how the games will be updated for the Shield.

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". This, then, is a significant step into Chinese living rooms for Nintendo.
