As is the case with the 3DS, Wii U demos from the eShop come with play limits. You can only boot up a demo a certain amount of times before it becomes inoperable.

According to a Nintendo representative, publishers determine how long demos remain on the eShop and how many times they can be played.

“Each publisher has the opportunity to decide how long demos will stay on the eShop, and how many times consumers can play them before they expire.”

When content expires, you’ll receive the following message when trying to start the demo:

“This demo can no longer be used. View information about the full version in the Nintendo eShop?”

If you select yes, you’ll be taken to the game’s eShop page.


This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS™

CRIMSON SHROUD – LEVEL-5 and Yasumi Matsuno brought together the industry’s most respected role-playing game creators to lend their support to CRIMSON SHROUD. Follow the tale of a young “Chaser” named Giauque, as he and his team find themselves drawn into the mystery of the Crimson Shroud. A tribute to the tabletop RPG, players roll dice in real time and chain skills together to earn bonus dice of greater and greater value. Use the dice strategically or the foes may get the best of you.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King why’d you steal our garbage?!! – Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!! is based on the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network show about two close friends: Jake, a wise old dog with a big heart, and Finn, a silly kid who wants to become a great hero. Adventure Time show creator Pendleton Ward was heavily involved in the creation of the game’s original storyline and quests. Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!! is also available at retail stores, and a demo version of the game is downloadable from the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
