27 April, 2012 - 5:17 pm by

Not wanting to give away too much… Nintendo have made yet another Wii U announcement during the investor’s conference held today. The Wii U will be at the forefront of digital territory for Nintendo.

Nintendo Global President, Satoru Iwata, plans on having the retail/digital buying option available at the launch of the Wii U console. Only first party software would be involved though.

The handheld 3DS will feature this option first and will begin in August wit the New Super Mario Bros. 2. Downloads to the SD card are available by the eShop or download code from retailers as already reported.
