Fed up queuing up for a game to be the first to play it? Well Nintendo has announced that you’ll be able to pre-download games on your Wii U and Nintendo 3DS so you can play them as soon as the game officially launches. You are already able to do this on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so it’s great to hear Nintendo is joining the party. The first game to make use of this feature on Wii U will be Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 3DS titles won’t be ready till next year.
lol i accidentally emailed a story that i didn’t know you covered already.
1st for me! Not for you!
Ok dokey Artie cookie!
This is one thing that I’m glad Nintendo’s jumping on the bandwagon for.
Sweet, now won’t have to worry about game downloads crcrashinthe midnight a game launches xD
1st for me! Not for you!
great!!! I was expecting something like this to happen! Really nice, Nintendo, thanks ^-^
what, HollowFlipFlopperJ send this?
I’m glad they’re finally doing this, but I still want a physical copy more, even if it means I have to wait in line. I swore I’d never go to a midnight release ever again earlier this year, but that 50 things extravaganza blew my mind! Smash bros will be worth waiting in line for. All aboard the Hype train! XD
Finally. Took them long enough lol
Great news for anyone that can’t wait to play Smash Bros the second it releases! :P
There there, we know you’re butthurt…
How? My Wii U doesn’t work anymore but that doesn’t mean my excitement for games is just gonna decrease or anything. I’m still getting a new Wii U in the future, you noob.

What did I do this time?! O_O Do you want me to change my mind and NOT get another one?
That wouldn’t affect me at all…
*gasp* :O How dare you say such a thing… :| I supported the Nintendo army for you!
When you are cleansed of any Xbot suppot and defense then maybe…
You don’t understand though. That’s the rule of being an unbiased gamer. You play all types of games regardless of what system they’re on.
There is being a gamer, and there is being a total brainwashed enslaved fool that forgives evil empires…
But you haven’t said anything positive about the XB1 or it’s games. You dissed it, it’s developers, and it’s games. That’s not being a “gamer” if you don’t care about the games simply because they aren’t on your preferred system of choice.
I see that MNN users have a really serious amnesia problem…
Games are the least of my problems with the Xbots…
But I’m too tired to re-explain everything again and again…
Prove it. Name some X1 games you’re interested in.
You’re not ready yet for a promotion because you did not understand…
I can’t hear you over all the fun I’m having being an unbiased gamer. :P

well it’s about damn time.
Awesome leap for Wii U to do some things other consoles..actually PS4 and that cable box, can do. :)
Now, if only the digital games were pricedar a little more fairly. Pretty sick of digital games being sometimes £10 or more more expensive than physical versions…
it’s the main reason I only have Virtual Console games digitally…
More expensive? I don’t know about you guys, but in the US, digital games are the same price as retail.
Could someone not hack the Wii U to be able to play the game early?
After what happened to me yesterday, I now think that downloading games (instead of buying retail copies) is even more stupid than I already thought it was. Damn piece of s*** flash drive!
better late than never and it does open some options for impatient people which i see as a good thing.
This has nothing to do with the game downloading early or getting the game earlier. If you read the original source, the ONLY thing that is implied is that you can purchase the game and have it download while you’re away. You don’t get the game any sooner like people are saying for some reason.
disregard this, i’m an idiot
Now they just need to let you use eShop credit towards the pre-ordering the digital copy and we’ll be all set!
