Nvidia Shield launches in China with support for Nintendo Wii games

It was close to a year ago when Nvidia announced that it would be bringing a new home console to consumers dubbed Shield. The unit is the successor to the Shield TV and offers quite a bit of power under the hood, with the ability to run some graphically intensive games. The device will now make its debut in China and will also arrive with support for Nintendo Wii games.

The release is an important one as Nintendo has yet to officially release the Switch in China. While they aren't the most modern Nintendo games, the initial batch of titles are some of the best the firm has to offer, such as New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Punch-Out!!.

The wave of Nintendo games isn't just a one time roll out either, with games like Super Mario Galaxy and more coming at a later date.

The console is now available and can be purchased for ¥1499 CNY which is around $226 USD.
