When the Wii U ships this year, its eShop will be available from day one. Nintendo confirmed that users will be able to purchase both digital retail games and smaller-sized titles from the Wii U eShop. According to Wii U Daily, Nintendo explained the Wii U eShop purchase options, – listed below – which are identical to the the Nintendo 3DS’s options.

  • Purchase directly from the Wii U eShop with a credit or debit card.
  • Purchase via a download code that you acquired.
  • Pre-paid download cards, which can be purchased from video game stores and online.

  1. I am gonna choose Pre-Paid Cards and i have a Strong Feeling maybe those cards are going to have a NFC Chip or Mark inside them. So when you get the card near the NFC reader on the GamePad, its scans them and the Money will be Instantly on your account. That would be Awesome and better than getting a Card that you scratch off and type a code just to get the money. That’s my way of thinking lol.

  2. If I want to purchase Cloudberry Kingdom or Trine 2: Director’s Cut for the Wii U on either SD Card or external hard drive, I’m all game! The purchase options are very simple and reliable.

  4. What i think would be awesome, is using the Miiverse app for your phone, buying one of those cards, typing it in on the app, which turns on the console amd starts downloading it for when you get home. That would make me jizz.
