NVIDIA Shield Will Bring Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games To China

New Super Mario Bros. Android Wii

China has very strict rules when it comes to releasing games consoles in the country.

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. In an unprecedented collaboration for Nintendo, it's working with Nvidia to port a selection of Wii and GameCube games to the Android-powered Shield TV for today's release in China.

Some of the Nintendo titles that will be available for the first time in China (at least legally) are New Super Mario Bros. for the Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Punch-Out!.

Thursday night , the low will be around 23 with partly cloudy skies, according to the weather service. Partly to mostly cloudy and breezy on Wednesday , with highs in the low 30s (0 degrees Celsius).

What is unclear for now is how far this deal between Nintendo and Nvidia extends in terms of future title announcements and markets beyond China. We'll have to wait and see if any other graphical improvements have been done on the games. 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. Coinciding with the launch of the NVIDIA SHIELD in China, some remastered old-school Nintendo video games are being added to the console.

Nvidia is launching its Shield TV set-top box in the Chinese market. But it's the Nintendo connection which is, perhaps, most surprising.

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