Nintendo Outlines Digital Plans for Retailers in Europe on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has confirmed plans to offer up a more convenient way of selling downloadable Wii U and 3DS games at European retailers.

The new platform, to be available in the UK, Ireland and Germany initially, will allow retailers to sell digital eShop codes using a tablet-based solution. Customers will be able to visit selected stores to purchase redemption codes for 3DS and Wii U games, including DLC, download-only titles as well as full retail releases.

Upon paying, a code will be generated to be redeemed on the eShop. Simples!

The service is already available at LEGOLAND Germany and Smyths Toys Superstore in Reading, with more locations and countries to be rolled out in the future.

On Wii U and 3DS, do you own more digital or retail releases?
