Nintendo and NVIDIA are teaming up to bring Wii and GameCube games to the NVIDIA Shield in China.
Nintendo and NVIDIA have previously worked together on the popular Nintendo Switch console, which uses NVIDIA’s Tegra chip. The NVIDIA Shield, which launched today in China, will make Nintendo games such as New Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Punch Out!! available in China for the first time, with popular titles like Super Mario Galaxy coming soon. The Nintendo Wii and GameCube games will run at 1080p on the Shield.
With China not allowing Google services in their country, the Shield will include streaming services, a store and a smart assistant that are developed by local partners in China.
The NVIDIA Shield sells for around 1,499 RMB, or $227, while each of the Nintendo games costs around 68 RMB or $10.
