Wii U Gets Its First Free-To-Play Game Today
Wii U’s first ‘freemium’ title in the UK will be downloadable from today, Nintendo has announced.
Zen Pinball 2 is now available as a free download on the Wii U eShop, the first free-to-play title on the console in Europe, although Namco’s Tank! Tank! Tank! was recently announced as a free title for Japan.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently spoke of a desire to explore free titles on Wii U and 3DS.
Zen Studios’ pinball sim features a host of tables including Marvel Pinball and Plants vs. Zombies themed tables.
Add-on DLC priced £2.39-£7.99 will also be available to buy to expand the free game.
Other downloadables available on Nintendo platforms today include a digital version of Batman: Arkam City Armoured Edition for Wii U for £49.99 (seriously) and a 3D video available on 3DS entitled The Beet Party: Beet Scratch, an 89p short film about rapping and singing beetroots (honestly).
