Nvidia showed off the capabilities of its upcoming Project shield handheld gaming console by showcasing a demo of RipTide GP 2 running on the Project Shield console.

The original RipTide GP game released two years ago was one of the first games that was optimised for NVIDIA’s Tegra series of mobile CPU. The game featured advanced visual effects including water splashes and motion blur, which are features that were exclusive to devices running on Tegra processors.

And now, Nvidia and Vector has teamed up again to bring the RipTide GP2 to the company’s Project Shield portable handheld gaming console. And since the game has been optimised for the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor inside the device, gamers should expect visual effects such as enhanced water and particle effects, HDR lighting, boosted reflection shaders and the all-new spectator mode.

The game also features full controller support for Project shield, with the gamers able to perform tricks and stunts in the game using the controller’s buttons. There is no additional information about the game but it is expected to be available around the same time as the official launch of Project Shield.
