Nintendo iQue shipping - Nintendo's video game debut into the Chinese market


The iQue Player from Nintendo has been specially designed for the Chinese market. It includes the console itself (in form of a Joypad) that will be connected directly to your TV Set.

Games are stored on a 64MB Flash Cartridge and a total of 5 titles are currently available, which are Dr. Mario, Mario 64, Zelda 64, Wave Race 64 and Star Fox 64.

Without surprise, the iQue Player is running in NTSC video format. Though the official video standard in China (as well as Hong Kong) is actually PAL, basically any electronical video device sold in the Chinese and Hong Kong market (including video game consoles such as PlayStation2™, Xbox™, etc.) are running on NTSC video standard. So the set is ideal for most users around the world.

Our shipment is expected to arrive this late afternoon and preorders are guaranteed to be dispatched until Monday. A more detailed report including screenshots, pictures and videos will be online shortly. We are accepting new orders for the following 3 sets that we have put together:
