Launches in Europe on the 7th Feb, DIGITAL ONLY!!! Do you think without the eShop this game would have ever made it to the Wii U?

Probably not considering its retail on 360/PS3. The good thing about the Eshop is it seems to be a lot easier for publishers to get content on there than Live or PSN stores.

 

I'm hoping it will be cheaper but I doubt it will be.

That's the thing. If I buy a full retail game digitally I want it for less than what I would pay in the shops. If they are gonna charge the same or higher then they can get stuffed.

Problem is shops/retailers would be outraged if Nintendo would sell egames for anything less than the RRP ;)

 

In this case nothing stops them (Tecmo Koei/Nintendo) for selling it under the retail price, I guess?

I'd like a different DLC Ken skin, he looks like a right metrosexual pretty boy in this - I prefer the original old-skool stuff.

But this game isn't available via retail so it doesn't effect them. £35 max

That's exactly what I meant, yes ;)

 

I guess €45,- / £40,-

Where can I get the film on DVD/Bluray? The series; yes. I loved the film as well, still have it on VHS; though nothing to play it on... :(

Sorry I should clarify: The Anime film, but on a Region 2 DVD. Mine doesn't do R1 :(

 

All I can suggest mate is getting region 1 and installing slysoft anydvd on your PC, then ripping (say, using DVD shrink) and burning as region 2 or region free :hmm:

 

This might be worth keeping an eye on if you're in the market: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fist-of-the-North-Star-TV-Series-Volumes-1-6-Boxset-DVD-2004-/271134610227?pt=UK_CDsDVDs_DVDs_DVDs_GL&hash=item3f20e1d333
