Nintendo games to appear on rival console

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

However, the games won't be available via a Nintendo console, rather these classic titles will run on Nvidia Shield, according to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad. 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. We're not jealous at all.

Nintendo is to release some of its popular games on a rival manufacturer's console for the first time in decades.

Nvidia's PC game streaming device, the Nvidia Shield TV, hit China this week and brought with it a surprise from Nintendo: support for a slew of Wii and GameCube titles.

When China finally lifted its almost 15-year ban on video game consoles in July 2015, it was only a matter of time before Nintendo started breaking into the market-and that has come true as of today. Wii to its Shield home entertainment device.

His investigation has resulted in charges against four people tied to the campaign, including former Trump adviser Michael Flynn. Time also named the Dreamers - young adults whose legal status in the United States was put in limbo this year.

The biggest problem with every Nintendo game is they are always Nintendo console exclusives, not counting those free to play mobile games. The games we will see for sure are New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, PUNCH-OUT! and, at a later date, Metroid Prime. 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 also said that more are coming soon include Super Mario Galaxy.

Nvidia and Nintendo are partners on the Switch, which uses Nvidia's technology.

There are still barriers for non-Chinese game publishers to release titles in the country, including state censorship and the need to establish joint ventures with local partners. This has ensured that gamers eager to play a new version of Mario Kart can only do so if they buy a Nintendo machine.
