Nintendo Remastering Classic Wii Games in HD for Android in China

There are still no news regarding the Nintendo Switch Virtual Console, but it seems like Nintendo hasn't been completely idle lately, as Wii and GameCube games will soon be made available on modern devices. As pointed out by Daniel Ahmad, Wii games on Shield cost the equivalent of just $10. We're not jealous at all.

Nintendo and NVIDIA are teaming up to bring Wii and GameCube games to the NVIDIA Shield in China.

The release is an important one as Nintendo has yet to officially release the Switch in China. The Shield is the only Android TV device with any kind of market share right now.

In the case of the Shield, which is already available elsewhere in the world, Nvidia gave it more a gaming bent. You can play them in 1080p too.

The recording would have given Imran greater credibility with the terrorist organization, the document said. Downing Street is protected by armed police officers and separated from the public by fortified gates.

Speaking to Engadget, Nvidia has revealed that Nintendo will release remastered versions of New Super Mario Bros. This is not the first crossover between Nvidia and Nintendo, where Nvidia's Tegra actually powers the somewhat recently launched Nintendo Switch, one of their more successful consoles in recent years. However, it has experimented with mobile games such as Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Partnering with Nvidia might help Nintendo get its titles in front of Chinese consumers quicker and more effectively than if it waited for the Switch's official Chinese release (if that ever happens to begin with). All three are remastered in 1080p and only available through the China version of the Shield. The Shield has been customized for the Chinese market through partnerships with Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI system and entertainment options from iQIYI.

Up until 2015 console makers were banned from selling games in China.

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