Games going on sale in the initial batch include Wii Play and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess from Nintendo, and Red Steel, Need for Speed: Carbon, Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, Disney/Pixar’s Cars and Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz.

Some 15 titles from old Nintendo consoles will be made available via download at launch time, with 5-10 further titles being added to the list every month. However, Nintendo didn't say how much these games will cost European buyers.
