Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars is Nintendo’s First Cross-Buy Title

By   /   Jan 14, 2015

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars will be the first Nintendo title to official support cross-buy between the Wii U and 3DS.

During the Nintendo Direct Broadcast today, the company confirmed that players who purchase the game on either platform will receive the other one for free. Both version will be priced similarly at $19.99.

Sony has done tremendous work in promoting the cross-buy feature on its PlayStation consoles. The move was initially enacted to populate the player-base on the PlayStation Vita, which at that time was a barren wasteland.

The move worked well and with the PlayStation 4 Sony announced that it would be focusing on a majority of its handheld titles having cross-buy functionality.

Nintendo is finally stepping up to the same formula and we’ll probably see more titles in the future featuring cross-buy support between the Wii U and 3DS.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars will release on March 5 in North America. The game features a level creation and sharing element. Players go through levels to earn stars which can then be used to buy new creations from other players.

Favorite and popular creations can also be tipped by players, much to the appreciation of the original creator.
