Super Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess to launch on Android in 1080p

Super Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess to launch on Android in 1080p

Nvidia has been selling versions of the Shield TV set-top box for a couple of years, but it hasn't said how many units have sold to date. Games like Super Mario Galaxy are listed as "coming soon" too.

Both companies outlined that NVIDIA's home console will also have ported versions of games like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Details are thin as to how exactly these games have been remastered to run on the Nvidia Shield, but as you can see from the tweets below, New Super Mario Bros.

Though these releases are limited to China, the very fact that first-party Nintendo games are up and running in HD on the Shield TV will no doubt intrigue fans elsewhere.

What is unclear for now is how far this deal between Nintendo and Nvidia extends in terms of future title announcements and markets beyond China. The Nvidia Shield is priced at 1,499 Yen (US$226) and then you have the cost of the games on top of that, which is now unknown. The Switch, after all, uses the same Tegra X1 system-on-chip as the Shield TV, and this could be a sign of what's to come.

By bringing Wii games to the Shield TV, it's quite possible that Nintendo is testing the waters for bringing Wii and Gamecube emulation to the Nintendo Switch. This, then, is a significant step into Chinese living rooms for Nintendo. Granted the Nvidia Shield isn't available officially in India, but with the GeForce Now streaming service already accessible in India complete with local billing options, it isn't too absurd a prospect.
