The device went on sale December 5 in mainland China with three classic Nintendo games, including The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, New Super Mario Bros. We're not jealous at all.

For the first time ever, Nintendo Co.'s games will be playable on gaming hardware that wasn't made by the Japanese company.

In a surprising move, Japanese gaming powerhouse Nintendo is licensing major Wii and GameCube games to chip manufacturer Nvidia - but these games aren't going to Android smartphones, but rather the Android-powered Nvidia Shield set-top box, and they'll only be available in China.

Nintendo has yet to launch the Switch in China, so this may simply be a stopgap until it can get its new hybrid console on the market.

The companies have yet not clarified how the games will be updated for the Shield.

The Nvidia Shield TV is a streaming device that hooks up to a television and can be used to share photos, stream music, display your calendar, interact with your home and, perhaps most importantly, play movies, TV and games. "It will run popular PC games as well as Nintendo Wii games such as Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess and Punch out", read a tweet from Ahmad.

How things such as motion control have been handled in the conversion we don't know, although New Super Mario Bros will apparently run at 1080p - and the same is understood to be true of the other titles, too. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Punch-Out! New Super Mario Bros.

Up until 2015 console makers were banned from selling games in China. The Shield has been customized for the Chinese market through partnerships with Baidu's DuerOS conversational AI system and entertainment options from iQIYI. Some others have been mentioned as coming soon; Super Mario Galaxy, and Metroid Prime among the future lineup.

Nintendo's family-friendly lineup means it may fare better with China's censors.
