Nintendo games to appear on rival console

From BBC - December 6, 2017

Nintendo is to release some of its popular games on a rival manufacturer's console for the first time in decades.

Some of the company's older games from the discontinued Wii console will appear on the Nvidia Shield set-top box in China.

Historically, Nintendo has rarely licensed its original games and characters to rival console-makers.

The Japanese gaming giant does not currently sell its latest console, Nintendo Switch, in China.

However, most people play on PCs or mobile devices, despite China relaxing its rules on the sale of foreign consoles in 2014.
