Nintendo and Nvidia make common cause: Various classics of the switch manufacturer should come in this context on the shield hardware from Nvidia. It starts with “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” and “New Super Mario Bros. Wii”, which are already showing in two gameplay videos. Regrettably, the cooperation was initially announced only for the Chinese market.
Nintendo and Nvidia have today announced a collaboration that will see Wii and GameCube games finding their way onto Nvidia’s shield. But there is a huge catch: The offer was initially confirmed only for the Chinese market, which of course does not mean that sooner or later there could be no announcement for the owners of the hardware. First, however: Who uses Nvidia Shield in this country, goes out for the time being empty.
Along with the announcement of the cooperation in China, the first games that can be played on Nvidia’s Shield have been confirmed. These are “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” and “New Super Mario Bros. Wii”. Since no further details on the ports were revealed, it is not clear what the players expect and how the whole thing gets started on the hardware.
However, it is certain that “New Super Mario Bros. Wii” will support a resolution of 1080p. “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” can be seen in a video that was posted on Twitter and therefore does not have the best quality. Below you see a clip to “New Super Mario Bros. Wii”. In China, the Nintendo classics cost 68 RMB. That’s about ten dollars.
Here is some gameplay of Twilight Princess running on Nvidia Shield.
It is said to be running in HD (Not sure what that means exactly in terms of the port).
