Nvidia Shield launches in China with support for Nintendo Wii games

If you happen to live in China and want to get your hands on one of these, it'll cost you RMB 1499 ($227).

Nvidia's PC game streaming device, the Nvidia Shield TV, hit China this week and brought with it a surprise from Nintendo: support for a slew of Wii and GameCube titles. Who wouldn't want to play Twilight Princess in 1080p, though? The Switch, after all, uses the same Tegra X1 system-on-chip as the Shield TV, and this could be a sign of what's to come.

Not only that but each game will run at 1080p, meaning they'll look much nicer than their Wii originals. Hopefully, more games and titles for the Shield TV. Hopefully Nintendo and NVIDIA will see sense and release them in all territories before long though.

Extending the business relationship that brought Nvidia technology to Nintendo Switch, some of Nintendo's most beloved Wii and Nintendo GameCube titles are officially headed to China for the first time.

And now New Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo, a Japanese consumer electronics company, announced it partnership with NVIDIA to launch Wii and GameCube games for Nvidia Shield only in the Chinese market.

China has very strict rules when it comes to releasing games consoles in the country.

The companies have yet not clarified how the games will be updated for the Shield. This would be good news on its own, but the kicker that it will also come with popular Nintendo Wii games turns the device into a must-have for gamers all over China.

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival consolemakers.

Nintendo, an over 100-year-old Japanese game company, has worked around China's restrictions in the past by partnering with a Chinese company named iQue.
