Wii U games to be sold in stores as well as digitally at launch

Wii U Nintendo News

While Nintendo is already planning on offering full retail games through digital distribution on the Nintendo 3DS in August, the company appears to be taking an even more aggressive approach to digital distribution when it comes to the Wii U.

Satoru Iwata revealed Nintendo’s plans today to sell Wii U games both in retail stores as well as through their digital distribution service when the games are released. The plan will be the same as previously described for Nintendo 3DS games, wherein retailers will be able to sell downloadable codes for games as well as making them available for purchase on the eShop. As such, retailers will also be able to set their own prices for these digitally distributed game codes, allowing for discounts which has previously been unheard of from Nintendo’s eShop.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
