With the discount, users will be paying 1,890 yen, 810 yen off of the standard price of 2,700 yen, for each game. The full list of titles and release dates are below. Currently, this is limited to Japan.

I'm glad Nintendo is doing something like this in any capacity given the dearth of Wii U releases the second half of this year. I hope they get a little more creative with their selection if they do something like this for North America and Europe though. Week one is fantastic, but after that it's not the most inspired list of games. That's not to say that any of those are bad games, but most of them have a lot of copies floating around in the wild and can be had for a decent price already, and just don't seem that exciting in general.

I think the only games of the 10 that aren't out in either NA or Europe are Rhythm Heaven Fever and the Project Zero game (which I will be stunned if that gets localized).

Project Zero 2 was localized for Europe, they just never bothered to release it for North America.  They could pretty much just dump it as is on the eShop though.


I'd be shocked if Project Zero 4 was localized though.  Thankfully there was a nice fan translation done for it... so anyone with a modded Wii can play the game.
