Nintendo Launches Wii and Gamecube Games on Nvidia Shield in China

My Hero Academia One's Justice

Better yet, the three titles available now are not just ported, but remastered for the Shield in 1080p, providing more resolution than was available on the Wii.

"NVIDIA and Nintendo Co., Ltd. have reached a licensing agreement to bring select game content to SHIELD, available for the Chinese market". We're not jealous at all.

It's also unclear if or when those Nintendo games will be supported on Nvidia's devices outside of China.

Earlier today it's been confirmed that a selection of Nintendo Wii and GameCube games will be released on NVIDIA Shield in China. China's gaming market generated US$24.6 billion in revenue past year, compared with US$24.1 billion in the U.S. Wii, and Punch-Out!. All three games were originally available for the Wii almost a decade ago at a measly 480p resolution.

Maduro: Venezuela to create new 'petro' cryptocurrency
President Donald Trump's administration this year hurt the country's ability to move money through the worldwide banking system. He said that Venezuela will develop a cryptocurrency that is backed by gas, diamond reserves, gold, and oil.

In the case of the Shield, which is already available elsewhere in the world, Nvidia gave it more a gaming bent.

In most places, you need to get Nintendo hardware to play Nintendo console games. The Nvidia Shield has so much untapped power that simplistic Android games which may push an Adreno GPU will generally run very well on the Nvidia Kepler GPU that is in the Tegra SoC. Nvidia specifically points out New Super Mario Bros Wii, PUNCH-OUT! New Super Mario Bros. The Shield has been customized for the Chinese market through partnerships with Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI system and entertainment options from iQIYI.

Tatsumi Kimishima, President of Nintendo clarified the company's stance on launching "Switch" in China during Nintendo's latest earnings briefing.

So why is Nintendo rolling out some of it's best games in China instead of the USA or other markets where the Shield has been available for years?
