    While you can already get your Donkey Kong Country Returns fix by playing it on the Nintendo Wii or 3DS, those in China get to experience the game in a way that no other region can: on the NVIDIA Shield. Running at 1080p and 60fps, this is the best performing and looking version of the game you can play, officially. Much like the 3DS port, there are no motion controls, and DKCR can be played entirely with a standard controller. If you want to know how the game plays on the Shield, you can check out some footage, which was uploaded to YouTube. This is the fourth Nintendo Wii title to come to the Shield, following Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    I have long wished this game would come out on the Switch running at 1080p 60fps. It looks great on Dolphin.

    It would be cool if we could get these emulated Wii games on Switch, since it's basically an NVIDIA Shield anyway.

    Ohhh, but it might corrupt the minds of the youth. Not sure if China's new dictator will be able to keep them under his heel if they are influenced by Donkey Kong!

    What device do you need to shake to move?

    the wii version. you also have to shake when you get one of those dk barrels at the end of a level. the 3ds has that mapped to buttons. I can just imagine dropping the 3ds if you had to use motion controls. anyway, it's not as bad as everyone says, though it can feel awkward, almost as if they were trying to find any excuse to have motion controls in a wii game.

    Like we care what China has. Atleast we aren't ruled by a benevolent dictator and government.

    How have these not been RE’d yet? I would love to play SMG on my Shield TV.

    I periodically check dolphins ability to play Wii sports on it too, and rn it is close, but still sloooowwww.

    I forgot
    From what I remember, it's because there are online license checks that are, so far, difficult to remove/bypass.

    Which is a shame, because I would love to get my hand on all of these, SMG without motion controls sounds interesting.
