Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games Coming To NVIDIA Shield In China

Nintendo Wii And GameCube Games Coming To NVIDIA Shield In China

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. That is why console manufacturers partner with local companies to handle the release and sales.

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

Congress likely to give neck and neck fight to BJP in Gujarat
In central Gujarat, Congress is predicted to get only 38 per cent votes, while the BJP is set to get 54 per cent votes. This has grown by 14 percentage points in the four months since, with the party now neck-and-neck with the BJP.

Nintendo will launch a selection of its most popular Wii and GameCube games on Nvidia's Android-powered Shield tablet in China. The confirmed games, Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, New Super Mario Bros.

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

John Oliver hammers Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment allegation
Hoffman, however, denied having any memory of meeting Hunter, saying: "I still don't know who this woman is. In response to this, Hoffman said "You weren't there", prompting Oliver to say "I'm glad".

If you pick up a Chinese Shield TV, you'll be able to play New Super Mario Bros. Unfortunately, it seems that this will likely remain China-exclusive permanently, as all communications from Nvidia and Nintendo indicate that it's specifically targeted at Chinese audiences. We'll have to wait and see if any other graphical improvements have been done on the games.

I suspect these four games will be used to gauge interest in China.

House of Cards season six, resume production in 2018 without Kevin Spacey
Production for the season had been suspended indefinitely after Spacey was accused of sexual harassment by actor Anthony Rapp . The actor claimed he was 14 when Spacey allegedly harassed him by climbing on top of him on a bed following a party in 1986.

Given that the Shield Tablet shares the same architecture as the Switch, there's a very strong chance we could see these games coming to the eShop at some point in the future, too. Twilight Princess and Punch-Out! in 1080p.
