Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games Are Being Remastered For Nvidia Shield--But Only In China

Death Stranding

It is an Android-based home console, and will feature remastered ports of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and New Super Mario Bros.

China's edition of Nvidia Shield, which costs 1,499 yuan (US$226), is a completely localised device, according to Nvidia. We're not jealous at all. It also marks the first time these games will have been supported in China, ever.

Nintendo and NVIDIA are teaming up to bring Wii and GameCube games to the NVIDIA Shield in China.

During Nintendo's latest earnings briefing, President Tatsumi Kimishima stated that the company knows China is a big gaming market, but they are not selling Switch in that market now. Your agony will be over soon as the gaming and media device is arriving in Mainland China. It'll remain to be seen how the version of Twilight Princess holds up next to the Wii U HD remaster.

Nvidia has put together multiple partnerships to bring games like Borderlands and Doom 3 to the Shield, but the Chinese launch is all about Nintendo. This is not the first crossover between Nvidia and Nintendo, where Nvidia's Tegra actually powers the somewhat recently launched Nintendo Switch, one of their more successful consoles in recent years. Just look at Kellogg's Super Mario Cereal. The games in question include Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros.

"The deal allows Nintendo to test its older content on the Chinese consumer and to accrue useful data on usage of those games".

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival consolemakers. Games like Super Mario Galaxy are listed as "coming soon" too. Bloomberg spoke with analyst Hideki Yasuda, of the Ace Research Institute, who suspects it's a ploy by Nintendo to increase brand awareness in China.
