Wii U eShop

Namco Bandai has dated Tank! Tank! Tank! for Japan, and is doing something rather interesting for the downloadable version.

The game is hitting retail on February 21 for 5,040 yen. But those who are interested in a downloadable version won’t have to wait nearly as long. Tank! Tank! Tank! will hit the Japanese Wii U eShop on December 26 – yes, tomorrow.

Here’s where things get interesting. A “basic pack” containing a city level with Free for All, Team Battle, and Giant Monster modes (in addition to multiplayer) will be free, but can only be played three times per day. It sounds like the limit can be removed once players purchase one or more pieces of DLC.

Other pricing information:

– Beach, canyon, volcano maps for 200 yen each
– My Kong mode: 1,000 yen; sale price of 200 yen through January 31
– Campaign mode: 2,200 yen
– 4,800 yen to upgrade to the full game
– 5,600 yen if you wait until the My Kong sale is over
– Full downloadable version of the game coming 5,040 yen on February 21


The Wii U and 3DS eShops are completely different entities. Although both stores contain content that relates to each other, they aren’t linked in any way.

Users can’t look up shared history between the two systems. It’s also impossible to, say, buy a 3DS game through the Wii U eShop. And that’s how it’ll be for the foreseeable future.

Nintendo of America’s Dan Adelman was recently asked about the possibility of linking the two eShops, but there are no plans for now.

“Well we’re calling them both eShop. It’s just that one is the 3DS eShop, and the other is the Wii U eShop. Wii U users can see info in the Wii U eShop about 3DS games, but right now we don’t have any immediate plans to sell 3DS games via the Wii U eShop – or vice versa.”

Thanks to Tim for the tip.

Trine 2: Director’s Cut’s update has been pushed back slightly. It’s now on track for a release in early January.

When the update is approved, it will go live in North America and Europe at around the same time. Europe may get the update a couple of days earlier though.

According to Frozenbyte’s Joel Kinnunen:

“It’s being tested by Nintendo. Right now the holiday period doesn’t help though – we were hoping to get it approved and released by Friday but alas, looks like it has to wait until early January now. (Pretty much the same goes for North America, although we did make one mistake with that build so it might be a couple of days later than Europe – but this isn’t exact science so who knows.) Sorry!”
