Wii / GameCube games for NVIDIA Shield in China are running natively after all
Plenty of attention has been given to the new release of the NVIDIA Shield in China, and understandably so. One big aspect is that a few Wii games are playable on the device, with more to come (and GameCube games to boot).
We heard yesterday that these titles are streamed, and aren’t actually ports. However, it appears that the initial information was a mistake. An NVIDIA rep has stepped forward, saying that this “has been talked about internally.” The Nintendo titles “are running natively, are remastered, and look great.”
The Wii games available on the NVIDIA Shield in China run at a 1080p resolution. New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Punch-Out!!, and Super Mario Galaxy have started the Nintendo partnership.
Thanks to Justin for the tip.

The ad, pictured above, comes from the Apple Watch App Store. While the text is the same as the Halloween event, the Pokemon are not. Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip from Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire should be on the way soon, along with other potential Pokemon.

Capcom says Resident Evil was initially in development for SNES

Had history taken a different direction, the first Resident Evil could have ended up as a very different game. Capcom’s Koji Oda told Game Informer that it was originally in development for the SNES.
Some of you may know that Resident Evil was inspired by the horror title Sweet Home, and was a spiritual successor of sorts. It makes sense then that it started off on the SNES. But as Oda mentioned, when the PlayStation came into the picture, Capcom shifted to that platform.
