NVIDIA's Shield TV console just got a big new feature in China as the company collaborated with Nintendo to make several classics available in China for the first time.
The Shield TV starts shipping in China today for 1,499 yuan (about $226) and NVIDIA provides a local store that offers New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and PUNCH-OUT!! These games are remastered for 1080p, more titles like Super Mario Galaxy will follow soon. The games will be sold for 68 yuan (about $10).
We wouldn't expect anything about this arrangement to expand beyond China in the foreseeable future, but the licensing arrangement is a way for Nintendo to crack the market officially. We don't have much information on the Shield that's available in China, but it is different from the US version, with local "content, store, search and more" plus a voice control AI powered by Baidu.
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).
