Nvidia Shield Gets Wii, Gamecube Titles In China

  • Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games Are Being Remastered For Nvidia Shield--But Only In China

Earlier today it's been confirmed that a selection of Nintendo Wii and GameCube games will be released on NVIDIA Shield in China. Nintendo is no exception, opting to partner with Tencent for a Switch launch in December. All of the official communications about the deal stress that it's specifically for the Chinese market, so don't go expecting Nintendo to roll out official PC support elsewhere in the world.

Nintendo has been particularly hard-hit by piracy, which is rampant in China and has dissuaded console manufacturers from launching their products in spite of the huge market potential. Of course, this raises the question how these games, designed for waggle-tastic Wii Remote, play on a console with a standard, non-motion controlled controller, and only time will tell if these are good or bad ports.

"Nvidia has an established partnership with Nintendo through the supply of its Tegra X1 processor for use in the Switch console". Games like Super Mario Galaxy are listed as "coming soon" too. Twilight Prince's, and PUNCH-OUT!.

Seconde vie pour les jeux Wii et Gamecube…sur Switch ?
D'ailleurs, le succès planétaire de la console hybride fait largement, aussi, les affaires du géant chinois. D'autres titres devraient également faire leur apparition sur la machine compatible Android TV.

Yemen war: Former president Ali Abdullah Saleh 'killed'
At least 13 other journalists and media workers are now held hostage in Yemen by armed groups, including the Houthis and al-Qaeda. Residents reported heavy bombing, and a United Nations official said at least 25 airstrikes hit the city over the past 24 hours.

If that's the case, it's unlikely Shields in the U.S. will see these games legally-which is a major bummer to me personally, as the Nvidia Shield remains my absolute favorite set-top box.

Despite the unorthodox treatment of its titles, Nintendo's latest plan does fall in line with how complex Chinese releases usually are. It's similar to a tablet, but is capable of better graphics and can be connected to a TV and played with a controller. This also applies to the Gamecube backlog, especially as evidence mounts that the classic system's titles will eventually make it to the Switch. "For Nintendo, their main goal is probably to have their intellectual property recognized more in China". Now Nintendo has a new chance at winning over Chinese gamers.
