    Nvidia have announced that Nintendo will be releasing Wii and Gamecube games on their "Nvidia Shield TV" device exclusively in China.
    Why is this a good thing? For those who don't know, Nvidia are the leading graphics processor manufacturers in the world, who specialise in graphics cards for PCs and also graphics chips for various other devices. What's important here is that they have a Android powered "smart TV box" called the "Nvidia Shield TV" that basically runs android apps on your TV such as YouTube, Kodi, various Android games, etc. People have seen many of these on the market in the past. The most popular ones seem to be the Amazon Fire sticks or Fire TV boxes. This here is basically the exact same thing but made by Nvidia, and now its going to get Wii and Gamecube games running on it (exclusively in China, for now at least).

    But the interesting part here is that the processor chip inside the Nvidia Shield TV (the chip itself is called Tegra X1), is the exact same chip that powers the Nintendo Switch. Which pretty much confirms that the Switch is fully capable of running Wii and Gamecube games also, since in theory both devices are the same. So really all this comes down to whether Nintendo want to pull the trigger and release these Wii and Gamecube games.
    For those interested, the games that are going to be releasing on Nvidia's smart box are New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and PUNCH-OUT!!, and have been confirmed to run at full 1080p. So there's a good chance these will be coming to the Switch eventually.

    And a side note, Capcom announced that the Megaman X collection is also coming to the Switch.

    Gamecube games on Switch would be great. Prime 1 and 2 are basically givens to me (with Prime 4 looming.) Sunshine, Wind Waker HD and Luigi's Mansion would be great. Really want to play Sunshine again. It's been a decade.

    Super stoked for this, and a brilliant next logical step. Keep it old school, but update the graphics and freshen up the gameplay elements in a minor way. I can't help but feel this is a direct response to the failure of Mighty No. 9, and well-deserved. Can't wait for this one. Still need to play 10.

    Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild are must haves.

    How old is your son again?

    I've not played it myself, but I've only heard good things about Splatoon 2.

    Then yeah, any of the above 3 I mentioned would be a great start for him. Maybe more the Zelda and Mario since those are full single player.

    I don't own a switch but I think one thing to know is the possible need for an SD card. I think if you plan to buy games as cartridges, you may get away without one, but if you are going to buy games digitally you probably need to look into an SD card.
