Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games Coming To NVIDIA Shield In China

The confirmed titles so far include Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, New Super Mario Bros.

When the Shield arrives in China, Wii games will cost about $10 (RMB 68). We're not jealous at all.

This is the first time Nintendo will allows its games to be run on other platforms. All of the official communications about the deal stress that it's specifically for the Chinese market, so don't go expecting Nintendo to roll out official PC support elsewhere in the world. Twilight Prince's, and PUNCH-OUT!. Granted, the company used to be a little more open and allowed some developers to create officially licensed games with Nintendo characters for non Nintendo platforms (Mario Teaches Typing comes to mind), but then Philips ruined it for everyone with its bad CD-i Mario and Legend of Zelda games. Since the Wii games are not available on the Nintendo Switch, Shield could turn out to be the best alternative.

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. Inside is a powerful Nvidia Tegra X1 chip that can decode 4K HDR video and run console-quality games.

And now New Super Mario Bros. SHIELD will bring Chinese customers a brand-new experience in gaming, AI and home entertainment with Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI system and abundant entertainment options from iQIYI. 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.

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival consolemakers. Another Nintendo title coming soon for the Shield TV is Super Mario Galaxy.
