Wii U eShop

There are no plans at the moment to bring Braid to the 3DS eShop. But Wii U? That’s a slightly different story.

Although main designer Jonathan Blow says “we are really busy right now”, he has left the door slightly open for a possible Wii U eShop version sometime down the line.

Blow tweeted:

“Braid: 3DS, no. Wii U, maybe sometime in the future but we are really busy right now.”


I’ve counted no less than 30 games releasing alongside the Wii U in North America tomorrow (or today, depending on when this goes live). So let’s not waste any time going over all the games you might be playing if you’re not waiting two more weeks for the console to come out like I am…

Rayman Legends isn’t the only Ubisoft Wii U game to be receiving a demo on the eShop. According to one of the game’s developers, a demo for ZombiU will be on the store as well.

It’s currently unknown when a demo will be made available. Sooner rather than later, hopefully.

Each one of Ubisoft’s Wii U games will support the company’s Uplay service. This provides access to exclusive rewards and advice.

Ubisoft’s launch games offer the following items:

• Just Dance 4 – Call Me Maybe Alternate Version (40 Uplay units), Unlocks the Call Me Maybe Alternate version for play in Just Dance 4
• Assassin’s Creed III – 3000£ (10 units), in Single-Player
• Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth – Trials Pack (40 units), Unlocks 8 new trials
• ZombiU – The Last of Them (40 units), Unlocks new Survival Game mode in Multiplayer

You’ll be able to download a UPlay Wii U Application from the eShop. Ubisoft says users will be able to access the service “from the Home Menu, access the Uplay Wii U Application directly from the menu of the Home Menu, even if they do not own a Ubisoft game.”

By downloading the app, you’ll also be able to view Ubisoft’s latest trailers along with information and news about its games.
