Tekken Tag 2 Wii U available digitally at launch, cheaper than retail version

Friday, 26th October 2012 14:18 GMT By Dave Cook

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will launch both digitally and at retail on Wii U. The digital version is cheaper, Namco Bandai can confirm.

Nintendo Life reports – by way of Siliconera – that the game will launch in Japanese retail stores at 6,980 Yen, while it will also launch on the Wii U eShop at 6,280 Yen. It’s a saving, but know this – the download version will take up 16.7 GB of hard drive space. Yikes.

    Don’t forget that WiiU uses extrenal HDDs. Space won’t be an issue. You can use upto 3TB of usb HDD. Any old brand, no need to buy some over priced perpritory ones(stares at MS).

    Cheaper digital releases are certainly way to go.

    That pricing is for Japan, in Japan most games are priced at retail due to the games popularity.

    Unlike in UK or US, were we have price tiers, so it will be interesting to see what the price in the west will translate to.
