Renegade Kid is notorious for drumming up good will with their fan base, and the drumline is never ending: Xeodrifter was confirmed as “crossbuy” by the studio head. What is crossbuy? While Nintendo may be new on the scene, the principle is that if you own the game already for Nintendo 3DS, you will be able to download it for free when it comes to Wii U.
@zmiller1902 Throw your low hopes in the trash. 3DS owners of Xeodrifter will get a free Wii U game!
