Cross-Buy Feature Available for Squids Odyssey, Does This Mean Cross-Buy for Future Nintendo Titles?

on June 30, 2014 9:49 AM

Action strategy and RPG title Squids Odyssey can be purchased on 3DS and for those that do, they can also download a free copy of the title for the Wii U (provided both system IDs are linked).

Journalist Daan Koopman first tweeted about the deal earlier this morning:

The information can also be found on the Nintendo Europe official website:

Free download of Squids Odyssey on Wii U if you’ve downloaded Squids Odyssey on a Nintendo 3DS that is linked to the same Nintendo Network ID that you have registered on Wii U.

Nintendo has already set up various infrastructures to support cross-buy in future titles, such as linking Nintendo IDs and eShop balances between 3DS and Wii U, and Pushmo World recently had a special promotion where you could receive 30% off the Wii U version if you previously bought a 3DS game. Hopefully this might mean more cross-buy support in future titles.
