Curve Digital’s latest Wii U & Nintendo 3ds eShop game, a port of Roll7’s skateboarding game released last week in both North America and Europe. This was the first indie title to fully make use of cross-buy which recently went live, allowing users to buy a Wii U game, to receive a free version on the Nintendo 3DS and vice-versa. As this was the first release, many were watching to see how the title performed, and now Curve Digital Spokesperson Paul Watson, has revealed that they are \”very happy\” with sales.
\”Before opting in to Nintendo’s Buy One Get One Free initiative, the company made clear that we could do it one of two ways, and both were potentially open to exploitation beyond our control. Despite this, we\’re very happy with the cross-buy sales on Nintendo’s platforms so far, and will be taking part in the initiative again where possible.\” –Curve Digital spokesperson Paul Watson
The exploitation to which Watson alludes allegedly allows users meeting certain conditions the opportunity to download multiple versions for free. Nintendo Enthusiast will not be sharing the method to allow this as we have a strong relationship with supporting indie developers.
