Nvidia is bringing the Defend to China and it is teaming up with Nintendo to make it a system for Wii and GameCube online games in the region.
The announcement was produced by Niko Companions analyst, Daniel Ahmad, who tweeted that the Defend would have a focus on online games in China, and will be capable of jogging popular Laptop and Nintendo titles.

It is not likely that the partnership will ever expand further than China as it is simply just a fast and lower hazard way for Nintendo to enter the Chinese current market and give its online games a foothold.
Presented that the Defend runs on the exact Tegra chip as the Nintendo Swap, it’ll be fascinating to see whether or not Nintendo ultimately will allow recent Swap online games to be emulated on the Defend in China if these more mature emulations demonstrate to be popular.
If it did, it is even additional selected that the ports would in no way expand further than the localized Chinese Defend keep. Because of the equivalent elements among the Swap an the Defend this does, on the other hand, give additional precedent for a virtual console on the Swap that will enjoy these more mature online games.
