The First Made In Japan Wii U eShop Game Is From Arc System Works


arcwiiuJapan’s Wii U eShop is pretty empty with just seven download-only pieces of software: Nico Nico, Hulu, YouTube, Wii Street U, a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate packet relay tool, a freemium version of Tank! Tank! Tank!, and Nano Assault Neo.


Nano Assault Neo is the only game on that list and Arc System Works licensed the twin stick shooter from Shin’en Multimedia. Arc System Works is also working on an original Wii U game, Othello aka Reversi in the West. You can play Othello on the TV screen or the Wii U GamePad.


Othello is slated for release on April 17 for 500 yen ($5).
