Nintendo Pushes Downloads With Wii U Games Cheaper On eShop Than Retail



Nintendo announced a promotion in Japan that makes upcoming Wii U games like Pikmin 3 cheaper if you don’t mind a digital copy. The summer early purchase campaign drops the price of three Wii U titles by 10% if you buy them during their launch week. Pikmin 3 which comes out next week in Japan will kick the campaign off. Lego City Undercover and The Wonderful 101 are also part of the promotion.


Wii U Deluxe Set owners should be able to double dip on this promotion since the Digital Deluxe promotion gives members points which can be redeemed for eShop credit. No word if Nintendo of America will have a similar sale, but after adjusting for currency differences these games are actually cheaper in North America even with the sale.
