Including the first 3rd party title for the service

Although there hasn't been a digital release of a Wii game on Wii U for North America since January, the service is expanding in Japan with a Nintendo classic and the first true 3rd party game.

Super Mario Galaxy was made available on the Japanese eShop at the discounted price of 1,890 yen through June 14 before going to the standard price of 2,700 yen afterward. Buying the game will also give a 30% discount on any existing Wii title available in Japan.

Punch-Out will also release in Japan in June, followed by HOSPITAL: 6 Doctors - known internationally as Trauma Team - from Atlus in July.

This is an extreme longshot, but I'd love to see the Wii Fatal Frame be released in the US as a download. I figure it's going to be the only way we'll see it.


But for now, I'll take any Wii game release...

Might I suggest importing the European version & playing it with the Homebrew Channel? Or do you mean Fatal Frame 4, which has never had an English localization?
