Nvidia’s console, the Nvidia Shield, is normally compatible with PC and mobile games. However, it has been confirmed that the Shield will receive support for Wii and GameCube titles on its launch in China. Nintendo has partnered with Nvidia and iQiyi (a Chinese video platform) to re-release some of the Wii’s best titles on Nvidia Shield, such as New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Punch-Out!! and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, with more coming in the future.
What does this mean for Metroid, you ask? Well, Daniel Ahmad, the analyst who first reported the partnership, added: “It is said that Metroid Prime for Wii will also come to the system in the future.” He was not clear on whether this refers to the Metroid Prime Trilogy compilation of all three games in the series, or Metroid Prime alone. We’ll find out as time goes on.
