Quite a bit of people have been asking for Image and Form to do some sort of cross promotion between the 3DS and Wii U versions of SteamWorld Dig. Today, the company announced that in Europe it will be offering a special promotion to those who purchased the 3DS version of SteamWorld Dig. Previous purchasers of the game will receive a 25% discount off of the Wii U version of the title.
Unfortunately, this promotion is only running in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for now, as Nintendo of America does not yet have the infrastructure in place to support this type of cross promotion.
”It’s been quite a bit of back and forth regarding the cross-buy for SteamWorld Dig, that is, getting a discount for the Wii U version if you already own the 3DS version. We’re pleased to reveal that NOE has been able to implement this today. Everyone in the EU, AUS and NZ who owns SteamWorld Dig for 3DS will get a 25% discount when getting SteamWorld Dig for Wii U.
Unfortunately, NOA (Nintendo of America) does not have this mechanism in place – a cross-buy like this isn’t possible yet for our American customers, and we don’t know when they will have it. Sorry, nothing we can do.”
Will you be picking up SteamWorld Dig on the Wii U when it launches later this month? We would love to hear your thoughts below!
