Nvidia's Shield TV offers Wii and GameCube games in HD in China

Nintendo Is Bringing Wii Games To Nvidia Shield In China

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

That is why console manufacturers partner with local companies to handle the release and sales.

A Chinese Nvidia Shield trailer posted on Twitter by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad shows the system running various Wii and GameCube titles, while the Nvidia website confirms the games are 1080p remasters.

Nintendo and NVIDIA are teaming up to bring Wii and GameCube games to the NVIDIA Shield in China. However, this isn't the only partnership Nintendo secured for China.

Already, Nvidia has confirmed that The New Super Mario Bros Wii and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess are available to play on the Shield in remastered 1080p with other titles such as Super Mario Galaxy planned for the future.

His lawyer said at the weekend that Puigdemont would remain in Belgium until after the Catalan elections. Rovira said the jailing "is a very clear attempt to win these elections without political adversaries".

The Nvidia Shield launches in China with a retail price of 1499 Yen - around £169.30.

NVIDIA and Nintendo have announced something this week that will make retro gamers very happy (at least in China). China has also been a tricky market for Nintendo to operate within thanks to a ban on video game consoles first instituted in 2000 and lifted only in 2015. 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. 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.
