Nintendo Wii & GameCube Games Releasing in China Via NVIDIA Shield

NVIDIA Shield in China

First revealed by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, Nintendo is bringing some of its Wii and Gamecube games to China for the fist time, thanks to the NVIDIA Shield. The NVIDIA Shield which launched in China today features NVIDIA’s Tegra chips, similar to the one used in the Nintendo Switch. While both the Wii and Gamecube have libraries covering hundreds of games, only a select few were chosen for the Chinese market. The first round of Wii / Gamecube games include New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and PUNCH-OUT. All these games feature 1080p graphics. Super Mario Galaxy was also confirmed as a game that would be releasing in China soon. The Shield will cost about 1499 RMB (about $226), while the games mentioned above will cost about 68 RMB (about $10). The Shield in China is slightly different than that sold in the U.S.A., with more localized “content, store, search and more” being geared towards Chinese consumers, including voice control AI powered by the Chinese search engine Baidu.
