Nvidia Will Sell 1080p Android Ports of Nintendo Games in China

Nvidia Will Sell 1080p Android Ports of Nintendo Games in China

It's unclear how the games have been updated to run on the Shield, but we do know that, at the very least, the Shield's version of New Super Mario Bros.

Remastered Wii games on the Shield TV retail for around $10 per title, and other games including Metroid Prime and Super Mario Galaxy will eventually make their way to the platform, too.

When it comes to protecting their intellectual property, Nintendo can be rather particular about that, such as creating programs that YouTubers need to be part of in order to post videos on Nintendo games.

"NVIDIA and Nintendo Co., Ltd. have reached a licensing agreement to bring select game content to SHIELD, available for the Chinese market". The Shield TV itself costs 1499 yuan, or about $225.

Xbox One players will need 44 GB of space, while PlayStation 4 players will require a whopping 88 GB. Curse of Osiris includes new adventures, lost sectors, and quests that take place on Mercury.

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. Seeing as both the Shield TV and Nintendo Switch run on Nvidia's Tegra X1 mobile chip, anything that works on Shield natively will work on the Switch.

While the Nintendo Switch might be Nintendo's focus in markets like the US, Europe, and Japan, it appears that it hasn't forgotten about other countries like China.

Nvidia is making similarly major efforts to adapt its product to China.
