Namco Bandai experiments with Wii U Tank! Tank! Tank! pricing
Previously launched as a full-price retail title for the Nintendo Wii U, Tank! Tank! Tank! has now received a digital release on the console -- with a rather unique monetization approach.
The Namco Bandai-developed title will be completely free to download when it launches on the European Wii U eShop later this week.
However, users will only be able to play each of the game's modes three times per day, after which each exhausted mode will be locked out until the next day. Players can then choose to either wait 24 hours, or purchase the separate game modes to fully unlock them.
Namco Bandai isn't the only studio that is playing around with Wii U digital pricing. Companies like Broken Rules and Frozenbyte have been jostling with the prices of their games on the online Nintendo store since the console first launched late last year.
