Is it possible that eShop games for the Wii U will cost less than physical discs?

Evidence points to yes, at least in Japan. Namco Bandai has confirmed that in Japan, the physical media version of the upcoming title Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition will cost 6,980 yen, while the download will be priced at 6,280 yen, according to Siliconera.

That savings will come at a cost in storage though, as the download file is reportedly 16.7 GB in size. Better get that external hard drive ready!

No word on North American pricing yet.
