China banned video game consoles in 2000, due to concerns over adverse effects in youth. As a result, in 2002, iQue was founded as a joint venture between Chinese-American scientist Wei Yen and Nintendo. Their first console, the iQue Player, was developed to circumvent the ban. It did not have the physical media of traditional consoles, and games were stored in system memory.
Subsidiary of Nintendo
By 2013, the company became a fully owned subsidiary of Nintendo. Consoles released in China after 2013 were released under the Nintendo brand. After that point, iQue continued to support the products they had already released, and localized Nintendo's products into simplified Chinese while Nintendo Hong Kong localized products into traditional Chinese.
