Nintendo’s latest platforms, the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, have an online marketplace called the Nintendo eShop, but both of them arn’t integrated, and each features exclusive content.
When asked whether the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U will eventually share the same Nintendo eShop, Nintendo of America’s Dan Adelman said the company has no plans to combine the two platforms’ online stores.
NL: Are there plans for the Wii U and 3DS stores to integrate, share themes, or become one eShop brand?
Adelman: Well we’re calling them both eShop. It’s just that one is the 3DS eShop, and the other is the Wii U eShop. Wii U users can see info in the Wii U eShop about 3DS games, but right now we don’t have any immediate plans to sell 3DS games via the Wii U eShop – or vice versa.
