  • Death Stranding

The NVIDIA SHIELD is said to be sold for only $226 (RMB 1499) which is roughly the amount of a new mid-range phone from any top OEM today. It'll remain to be seen how the version of Twilight Princess holds up next to the Wii U HD remaster. It is, after all, a hybrid console built using Nvidia's Tegra platform. "It will run popular PC games as well as Nintendo Wii games such as Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess and Punch out", read a tweet from Ahmad. Hopefully, more games and titles for the Shield TV.

By bringing Wii games to the Shield TV, it's quite possible that Nintendo is testing the waters for bringing Wii and Gamecube emulation to the Nintendo Switch. We now know that they can run fine on NVIDIA hardware, and this includes GameCube titles that will be on the Shield at some point. New Super Mario Bros.

Extending the business relationship that brought NVIDIA technology to Nintendo Switch, some of Nintendo's most beloved Wii and Nintendo GameCube titles are officially headed to China for the first time. In 2003, the company partnered with iQue, a home electronics maker that developed a device capable of bypassing the legislation that banned console games. It has been created to work with Baidu's DuerOS conversational artificial intelligence (AI) system and entertainment options from IQIYI.

Nintendo's family-friendly lineup means it may fare better with China's censors.

During Nintendo's latest earnings briefing, President Tatsumi Kimishima stated that the company knows China is a big gaming market, but they are not selling Switch in that market now.

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival consolemakers. Nintendo will also be adding Super Mario Galaxy to the SHIELD in 2018.
