The China version of the Nvidia Shield can now play select Nintendo Wii and GameCube games. The confirmed titles so far include Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, New Super Mario Bros.
The companies have yet not clarified how the games will be updated for the Shield. The Nvidia Shield is priced at 1,499 Yen (US$226) and then you have the cost of the games on top of that, which is now unknown. Wii and Punch-out! will all arrive for the device, remastered with 1080p visuals. Not so in China, where the upcoming launch of the Nvidia Shield has seen a number of older Nintendo games-like New Super Mario Bros. It also opens up the possibility for official Gamecube games on both Switch and Shield too. It won't be surprising if Nintendo is planning to change its strategy looking at the lucrative potential. However, this isn't the only partnership Nintendo secured for China.
