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.
Shanghai Roastery Advances Two Key Starbucks Plans
The company has already inked a deal for an enormous 43,000-square-foot Reserve Roastery in Chicago that's set to open in 2019. The company's latest quarterly earnings were pretty gloomy, showing disappointing sales growth in a tough retail environment.
Kimishima outlined Nintendo is "aware of the vast size of the Chinese [gaming] market, but we are not selling [the Nintendo Switch] in that market at present".
Nintendo hasn't released the Switch in China, and historically doesn't directly offer its consoles for sale in the market; a subsidiary called iQue has handled China-specific variants of handheld consoles as well as a version of the N64 back in 2003.
