Newsbrief: Nintendo of Europe's regular eShop news update, in which the company highlights new game releases, included an interesting bit of information this morning. The company said players who buy the game Squids Odyssey (developed by The Game Bakers) for 3DS would be able to download the Wii U version of the game free of extra cost, as long as the two consoles share the same Nintendo Network ID. The game costs €12.99/£9.99. This is a notable move for Nintendo, as this is the first single-buy, multi-version digital game it has sold for 3DS and Wii U. We're following up with Nintendo to see if the initiative will expand. Sony has released PlayStation games under the same idea with its cross-buy offerings starting in 2012, and the practice is common on iOS and Android.
