The surprising news was confirmed by Daniel Ahmad on Twitter who shared the official trailer for the Nvidia Shield in China. The China version of the Nvidia Shield can now play select Nintendo Wii and GameCube games. All the communications from Nintendo and from Nvidia have been targeted specifically for Chinese customers. Nintendo can see a lucrative market for its products in China.
Nvidia's Android domestic console will be supporting games such as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and New Super Mario Bros. The Nintendo Wii and GameCube games will run at 1080p on the Shield. 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.
The games are appearing on the Shield courtesy of a local partnership between Nvidia, Chinese video company iQiyi and Nintendo, so don't go expecting these to ever appear in the West. It's more than likely that Nintendo's partnership with Nvidia is a way for the console manufacturer to crack a notoriously hard market for consoles. Both companies are enjoying the benefits of very healthy Switch sales.
Nintendo and NVIDIA have previously worked together on the popular Nintendo Switch console, which uses NVIDIA's Tegra chip.
