NVidia Shield to Carry Nintendo Wii and GameCube Titles in China

Nvidia and Nintendo announced they will be partnering to deliver Wii and GameCube titles to China via the Nvidia Shield. So far, New Super Mario Bros WiiThe Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Punch-Out!! has been confirmed on the Nvidia China’s website. The games will run at 1080p, though the Nvidia Shield can technically support up to 4K.

While this is exciting news for Chinese gamers, western gamers should not expect to see these titles landing on their Shields anytime soon. China’s market is a very special case due to a mixture of tight government regulations, laws banning game consoles only being lifted in 2014, and a growing middle class with buying power that has previously been untapped by international companies. Furthermore, the announcement has been limited to Nvidia’s Chinese website, so don’t get your hopes up!
