First Wii U eShop details emerge
With just over a week until launch, Nintendo has released the first Wii U eShop details, talking about the sort of content we might find there in the future. The Wii U eShop will function similarly to the 3DS eShop, and will carry game demos, HD videos, images and photos (which can be viewed on the GamePad), downloadable content for individual games, and more.
Furthermore, players will be able to rate the games available on the eShop, and write comments/reviews about it on Miiverse. The Wii U eShop will be downloaded when the console boots up for the very first time, and will offer downloadable retail games on day one. Nintendo will offer its own first party titles as downloads, including New Super Mario Bros U (about 2.5 GB), and Nintendo Land (about 3.5 GB).
