And its coming this week but only in Europe and only from 3DS to Wii U
In an historic first for Nintendo hardware, aquatic indie RPG Squids Odyssey will become the first cross buy title when it launches on 3DS this week. Buying the 3DS copy in Europe will also give you access to the game on Wii U, although buying the game on Wii U doesn’t give you access to the 3DS version.
Talking to Siliconera Squids odyssey devs Game Bakers indicated that they had been approached by Nintendo of Europe for the promotion and that this one-way cross buy functionality will only be available in Europe as Nintendo of America “could not support this operation yet.”
Squids Odyssey lands on 3DS in Europe on July 3rd. A Wii U version launched in North America last month. The game is a port to Nintendo consoles from its original version on iOS which came out in 2011.
