Is Nintendo eShop Adopting Cross Buy?
Early today is was reported that Nintendo gamers who purchase Squids Odyssey on either their 3DS or Wii U would be getting a free download of the software on their other console.
If you buy Squids Odyssey on Nintendo 3DS, you will be getting the Wii U version for free. Euro downloads just confirmed this.

This is the first game on a Nintendo console to provide the crossbuy functionality of purchasing a title once and accessing it via two different consoles. Typically if you purchase a title on a Nintendo console, it is bound to that console. Could this be the beginning of Nintendo embracing the digital age of account bound purchases? Let’s hope so.
