Nice exclusive, RMC!

Cool to see Choice Provisions partnering with other companies to release games on the eShop.

Very cool. More things with dragons the better.

My question is, will it have a cross-buy option like there was for VoW?

Looks like they're being sold individually.

Well, that's okay, I guess. I haven't really touched the Wii U version as much as the 3DS version, anyway. I really love the first game's sense of humor, and I'm sure the second's is just as good, so I'm in either way. :3

I adore both games, but Natsume and Muteki have a long history, so I'm biased ;)
