iQue, Ltd. (Chinese: 神游科技; pinyin: Shényóu Kējì) is a Chinese video game subsidiary of Nintendo. It was founded in 2002 as a joint venture with Wei Yen, with the intention of releasing Nintendo video games and video game hardware to China in the midst of piracy and a then-ongoing ban of video game consoles in the region. The company is well-known for its release of the iQue Player, a video game console based on the Nintendo 64. Other systems released by iQue included the iQue Game Boy Advance, iQue DS, and iQue 3DS XL.

Nintendo has since ceased releasing their consoles under the iQue brand, instead partnering with video game company Tencent to release the Nintendo Switch in China. However, iQue still does simplified Chinese localization for Nintendo's games.

iQue released Dòngwù Sēnlín—a port of Doubutsu no Mori—on the iQue Player in 2006, as well as the Animal Crossing Calculator and Animal Crossing Clock applications on the iQue DSi in 2010. iQue also did the simplified Chinese localization for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
