Squids Odyssey is cross-buy, but only in Europe

We found out via today’s European Nintendo Downloads that Squids Odyssey is the first cross-buy title on Nintendo platforms. If you buy the game on 3DS later this week, you’ll also get the Wii U version free.
Unfortunately, it turns out that this offer only applies to Europe at the moment. The Game Bakers’ Emeric Thoa explained:
“We are very excited by this promotion as it’s the first time this happens – as far as I know. It’s a proof that Nintendo is making efforts in giving more control to the developer on its pricing and promotions. I’m glad that our players will be able to play on 3DS and WiiU for the price of one game. It’s a shame that it’s only in Europe yet but hopefully this cross buy operation will be appreciated and the technical contraints that prevented it to happen in the US will be fixed.”
