Wii U to have its own App Store?

Following on from reports of an e-reader app coming to Nintendo’s Wii U, it would seem that the system will feature a full blown app store for software just like said app.

The Daily has heard that Nintendo is planning “to implement a full-blown app store for the system” that will “go far beyond” past Nintendo digital efforts like the e-shop. The site simply cites a “person familiar with the matter” in saying this.

Early looks at the Wii U have seen people chatting to each other  through the tablet controller and using it as a sketch pad. Perhaps these sorts of apps will be premium services bought off of the store?
