    They're used for the Wii U eShop too. If you're still not sure then look at the reviews.

    Can't we just buy the code god damnit? What's the reason behind a physical card?

    To use them as gift cards.

    Thank you :)

    Nintendo really needs to join all their different shops...

    I also confirm those cards from the opening post are for the wiiu. To be honest, I had doubts about it, even though the shop clerk confirmed it for me. The reason: the word "wiiU" is NOWHERE on the text. Not even in the smaller prints, disclaimer or anything.

    @PrimeX: not everyone has a credit card. And I'm not just talking about children either. It's good to see those physical cards in stores nowadays (at least: they have it in the shop near me). And...yeah, the advantage gets kind of lost if you buy it from an online shop that only accepts credit cards, but then you can just as well buy credit from the wiiu itself.

    That's why I had to ask. Nintendo really has to make all this clearer with their different shops.

    Maybe because your store doesn't have the newer cards...
