If there’s an interesting thing about Xeodrifter that would definitely be the fact that it features an action packed gameplay well worthy of your time and money. Still, the fact that the game was available only on the 3DS was a very bad thing for many, yet it seems that Nintendo wants to play things cool, which is really nice to begin with.

According to Nintento, it seems that current 3DS owners which have the Xeodrifter game will receive the Wii U version for nothing. This seems to be a new, interesting shift of pace in the way Nintendo does business nowadays, but the direction they want benefits the consumer, and this is the best thing they can do for sure.

In fact, it seems that they managed to actually go one step forward in order to provide you with a cross-buy options, so when you get any version, you will be able to get both, playable on both consoles

Is it a good idea? Absolutely, and I personally think that they should do this with multiple titles and not a single one, because there’s no reason to pay twice for the same product, it’s unethical. There are still many people all over the world that still buy PC, Wii U and Xbox versions for the same game, so one can only hope that this is a trend which will appear in the rest of the console world as well. It’s extremely unlikely that such a thing might actually happen, but who knows, the future is open in this regard.

Based on the information released about the Wii U version, it seems that it will maintain the $9.99 price that the 3DS version currently sells for.

There are a few negative aspects in regards to Xeodrifter as well, because the European version wasn’t a success unfortunately, in fact a week of sales didn’t match the sales that the product had on day 1.

It’s a little bad to see that such a thing happened, but in the end let’s face it, Xeodrifter is still a very good game and it does offer quite a lot of content so you are bound to like it quite a lot especially with its new, shiny Wii U port.

Is this game worth a purchase now so you can get it on the Wii U later on? Even if there’s no real release date when it comes to that particular port, considering the fact that there will be quite a lot of improvements, you are bound to have a lot of fun with that. So yes, if you like the idea of a game like Xeodrifter, you should definitely check it out! On the other hand, even if you haven’t heard about the game, it’s well worth a shot as it brings in a very good gameplay experience for you to enjoy, not to mention that you get the Wii U version for free as well!
