[email protected] planned for Australia and New Zealand, classifications causing delay
Posted on June 16, 2015 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop
The [email protected] program went live on the North American and European Wii U eShops yesterday. This is a brand new initiative from the Big N, which lets fans preview nine upcoming indie titles for a limited time.
In Australia and New Zealand, this offer has yet to hit the eShop. Nintendo explained in North America and Europe that game demos need to be classified before they’re released in these territories – hence the delay. The company added, “We are currently working with the developers to make it happen in Australia and New Zealand.”
Here’s the full message from Nintendo’s Facebook page:
The [email protected] programme has been announced by Nintendo in North America and Europe, where fans can access free preview versions of nine Nindie games from Nintendo eShop for Wii U for a limited time.
Down Under, unlike America and Europe, game demos need to be officially classified before their release, therefore in this region we require more time for these titles to be made available.
We are currently working with the developers to make it happen in Australia and New Zealand.
We thank you for being patient. Please stay tuned for further
