A quick guide for the new Shield game releases and for which devices they support

With the official launch of the Shield Android TV console, there has also been a few new games to be released alongside the console’s launch. However, not all of these new games are specifically for the Shield Console. Some of these titles are also for the Shield tablet, and there are even a few for all three Shield branded devices. Some of these games people have been waiting to play on their Shield Tablets and now that they are available, during the launch of the Shield Console, you might not be aware that you can play them on your tablet.

So to make life easier for all the Shield owners out there, whether it be the tablet, the portable, or the console (when it arrived at your doorstep), here is a quick guide to the new game releases. It’s nothing fancy, just the game’s name, the devices it is available for, and a link to it on Google Play.
