Good news for players who prefer digital services.
According to a report by 4Gamer, Tecmo Koei plans to launch all of its launch games day one digitally on the Wii U’s e-shop. These games will apparently be cheaper compared to the retail versions.
According to an interpretation by Go Nintendo the following games will be available on launch. Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper is 7,140 Yen via retail and 6,300 Yen via the e-shop. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII is 9,240 yen retail and 8,000 yen eShop while Ninja Gaiden 3 is 7,140 yen retail and 6,300 yen on the eShop.
The Wii U launches November 30th in the UK, November 18th in the USA and December 8th in Japan. Stay tuned for our full coverage of Wii U as our UK team will be churning review after review late November/early December.
