Wii U eShop launch gamesEarlier this week Wii U gamers in the UK got some nice discounts on downloadable indie games on the Wii U eShop. This time, North American Wii U owners also get a few discounts. In total, three popular indie games have received price cuts for a limited time only:

  • Trine 2: $15.99 until January 7
  • Little Inferno: $9.99 until January 4
  • Chasing Aurora: $7.49 until January 3

Those three games and Puddle went on sale in the UK earlier this week, so it’s expected that Puddle will go on sale in North America soon as well.

The Wii U eShop is getting a lot of support from indie developers — there are now around a dozen games and more are coming. Just a few days ago, it was revealed that Nintendo has reached out to the developer of Super Ubi Land and wants it to bring the new platformer to the Wii U eShop sometime next year.

    January 3rd is the day I’ll be getting my Wii U back and that means I have time to purchase Trine 2: Director’s Cut at a lower price.  Thanks to Nintendo and Frozenbyte.

    • back?

      • uPadWatcher

        I had the Wii U, but took it back due to personal financial issues.

        • ah. Sorry to hear that. Hope you have fun with it once you get it back!

    After playing the Rayman demo, all I care about is when THAT game is on sale.  Those three levels were tons and tons of fun.

    It’s nice to see Nintendo allowing sales on the eShop. At the moment I don’t care TOO much about this sale, but it definitely is a breath of fresh air for potential things to come. If the world doesn’t end soon at least. XD
