Along with news of price and release date, Nvidia announced a handful of games coming to the Shield. Double Fine is supporting the platform with two titles: its Kickstarter-funded Broken Age and Costume Quest.

Other titles coming to Nvidia Shield include Flyhunter from Pixar veterans, as well as Skiing Fred from Dedalord Games and Chuck's Challenge from Niffler.

The Nvidia Shield gives gamers access to an array of gaming avenues, including Nvidia TegraZone, Google Play, and Steam. The system runs on the Tegra 4 processor and boasts 16GB of memory, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a mini-HDMI output, a microSD storage slot, and a headphone jack.

The device also features a five-inch, 720p multi-touch display. For more on the Nvidia Shield, check out GameSpot's preview of the device from the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year.
