In most places, you need to get Nintendo hardware to play Nintendo console games. Not so in China, where the upcoming launch of the Nvidia Shield has seen a number of older Nintendo games – such as New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy and Twilight Princess – made available for the set-top device.

There were rumours this would be happening earlier this year, and as random as they seemed at the time, they have been confirmed following a presentation in China yesterday as footage was shown from a range of old Wii games, which are “said to be running in HD”.

The games are appearing on the Shield courtesy of a local partnership between Nvidia, Chinese video company iQiyi and Nintendo, so don’t go expecting these to ever appear in the West.

There’s more video of NSMB in action here.
