Nvidia Shield TV plays GameCube and Wii games in China

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. In addition to launching its Shield TV streaming box in China today, Nvidia has teamed up with Nintendo to bring HD ports of popular Wii and GameCube games to the device.

Here is some gameplay of Twilight Princess running on Nvidia Shield.

This deal comes as an expansion of the same deal that brought the Tegra X1 chipset to the Nintendo Switch, and it gets even sweeter when you consider the price.

Not only that but each game will run at 1080p, meaning they'll look much nicer than their Wii originals.

Mayfield a Heisman Finalist for Second Time
He completed 71 percent of his passes this season for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns to just five interceptions. If it holds, Mayfield's efficiency rating of 203.8 would shatter the record he set a year ago of 196.39.

The games are likely appearing on the Nvidia Shield because these two companies have developed a solid working relationship.

For the first time ever, Nintendo Co.'s games will be playable on gaming hardware that wasn't made by the Japanese company.

"The Shield will focus on games in China". Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Punch-Out! China's gaming market generated US$24.6 billion in revenue previous year, compared with US$24.1 billion in the U.S. Coinciding with the launch of the NVIDIA SHIELD in China, some remastered old-school Nintendo video games are being added to the console. This has ensured that gamers eager to play a new version of Mario Kart can only do so if they buy a Nintendo machine.

It's a significant shift for Nintendo, which has kept its home-grown games exclusively for its own home and handheld consoles since the early 1980s. It is described as "a completely localized device, with local content, store, search and more", and includes Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI (voice) system. However, this isn't the only partnership Nintendo secured for China.
