Nintendo to Expand to Third Party Digital Downloads
We all knew that this was coming. Once Nintendo announced they were planning to release their own games as digital downloads, it would only be a matter of time before the third party developers and publishers would get their chance. Nintendo confirmed this to IGN, stating that both the third and first party content for its new digital initiative will be supported. This plan is to be set in motion for both the Wii U and the 3DS starting off with the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game for the 3DS.
“We are currently preparing a program for third parties but have nothing specific to announce at this time,”a Nintendo representative told IGN.
Retail shops will have printed codes that will allow you to download the game fully from online, significantly expanding its digital business. This content will also be availble online, so you have three different ways to choose how to get your games!
