Nintendo and Nvidia bring HD Wii games to Shield TV in China

Nintendo and Nvidia bring HD Wii games to Shield TV in China

As Eurogamer reports, a deal has been struck between Nintendo and Nvidia to port Wii and GameCube games to Android while at the same time giving them a 1080p visual upgrade. Wii, and Punch-out! These games will be exclusive to the Nvidia Shield.

Of course, the games will be remastered in HD for this release.

It's a notable move for both companies, as (smartphone games aside) Nintendo hasn't generally made its games available on non-Nintendo hardware - let alone first-party properties like Mario and Zelda.

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. A trailer for the NVIDIA Shield in China has also been shared by industry insider Daniel Ahmad, and you can check it out below.

Antonio Brown cites 'karma' after vicious hits mar Steelers' win
The Bengals linebacker told ESPN the Magazine's Dotun Akintoye he believes Brown flopped on the play in order to draw a flag. It's worth noting that Smith-Schuster did apologize on Twitter after the game, saying "he didn't mean to hurt" Burfict.

"NVIDIA and Nintendo Co., Ltd. have reached a licensing agreement to bring select game content to SHIELD, available for the Chinese market". Who wouldn't want to play Twilight Princess in 1080p, though?

Nintendo and NVIDIA have previously worked together on the popular Nintendo Switch console, which uses NVIDIA's Tegra chip.

The fact Nintendo and Nvidia have a good enough relationship to make these ports possible should come as no surprise.
