Napster and Nintendo form new partnership

Nintendo forms a new partnership with Napster.

Nintendo of Europe has announced its newly formed partnership with the music streaming service Napster, which aims to deliver over 34 million songs to Wii U owners.

Those interested in downloading the free application may begin to use Napster as of Dec. 17. However, users must opt into a monthly subscription in order to indulge in musical content. Should you be interested in subscribing to Napster Unlimited, feel free to click here, otherwise, Napster is providing individuals with a free 30-trial.

Nintendo claims GamePad functionality exists within this particular application and grants users easier access to songs, artists, and genres.

At this time, Napster seems to be exclusive to Europe, and has yet to be announced for the U.S.
