Yesterday, Image&Form, developers behind the critically-acclaimed 3DS eShop title SteamWorld Dig, revealed that there would be a cross-buy promotion in Europe for those who currently own the game and will be picking it up again when it hits the Wii U eShop on August 28th. If you’ve already purchased SteamWorld Dig on the 3DS, the cross-buy promotion means you’ll be able to pick up the Wii U version for free!
Just like the Squids Odyssey promotion, this offer will only be coming to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. There has been little explanation as to why these offers have yet to hit countries such as Canada and the US, but we can only hope to see them come sometime in the near future. Here’s what Image&Form had to say on that matter:
“Unfortunately, NOA (Nintendo of America) does not have this mechanism in place – a cross-buy like this isn’t possible yet for our American customers, and we don’t know when they will have it.” — Image&Form
Image&Form followed up by saying, “Sorry, nothing we can do.” From the looks of it, Image&Form will jump on the chance to bring the SteamWorld Dig cross-buy offer to North American Wii U owners as soon as possible.
