Nvidia adds multiple controller support to its SHIELD Hub app


Nvidia has announced an update to its SHIELD Hub app, which adds support for multiple games controllers for the first time.


SHIELD Hub is an Android app available for phones and Nvidia SHIELD home consoles, which lets you play both Android games and PC games on your Android device (the latter streamed from a PC running the game).

The update now means that you can connect up to four controllers (depending on the game) to play multiplayer. Obviously if you’re playing on your phone, you probably want to plug your phone into the TV, so that you and your friends aren’t crowding a tiny display).

So far supported games include:

  • Ultra Street Fighter 4
  • Street Fighter X Tekken
  • GRID 2
  • Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
  • All LEGO titles (Batman, Marvel, Harry Potter, Hobbit & Lord of the Rings)
  • PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate
  • PixelJunk Shooter

    The update is being pushed out today (its version 4.2.19442273, apparently) – so all you have to do to get it is update your apps.
