    I've seen Davoid post about it on Facebook. He seems to like it.

    I've been looking forward to it! Might download it today with my Deluxe Points.

    EDIT: Oh, there's a discount on 3DS but not Wii U. Gotta love Nintendo's lack of cross-buy. I should save my money and get it on Steam or PSN.

    Oh, that's cruddy. I want the Wii U version for the multiplayer.

    There's reportedly a glitch (if it is a glitch) that lets you get the discount on the Wii U version as well. Might want to look into that pronto in case it is a glitch, and it's about to be fixed.

    EDIT: I wouldn't be surprised if it's a matter of people getting the discount on Wii U as well because of the whole NNID eShop merging thing, but what do I know. Nothing. That's what I know.

    Like, today today? Or Thursday?

    1001 Spikes is available on the 3DS eShop on June 3, 2014. Retails for $10.01 - at least in North America, and you also own another Nicalis eShop game.

    Oh wow, didn't even know they made this for Wii U!

    Got it for $10.01 on Wii U. Maybe not a glitch? That's a little too cute to be a coincidence. Would be neat if I got the discount because I own VVVVVV on 3DS. Still a bummer that I can only play it on Wii U, though I suppose if I wanted to play it on 3DS that badly I wouldn't have been so opposed to buying it on there.

    It's really the principle though. I don't feel safe buying a game from Nintendo's eShop.

    I know, it's so scary!!!

    I feel it's pretty damn safe, probably safer than a physical collection, if you're an idiot like me who's misplaced a case containing a few dozen DS games or so. I'm not sure I'll ever find them/get them back again. But the 3DS games I got off eShop are just a phone call to Nintendo away if I ever lost my 3DS.

    So I think it's safe. But I would say it's inconvenient if you often go visit friends who own the same consoles as you and you wish you could simply connect to your account and play your games there.

    This is why I live a life of no friends. Don't need to take games anywhere anymore!

    I've heard you need to have your system's serial number, so be sure to write that down. It seems like these things operate on a case by case basis, but it wouldn't hurt.

    @Secret_Tunnel

    If you linked your console to your Club Nintendo account (and why in the world would anyone NOT do that?!?) then they already have the serial number.

    @GameDadGrant

    Yep, Nintendo has the serial number.

    Also, pre-sharing-of-accounts, they used to have you get a police report, but not anymore.

    Good to hear. Baby steps, I guess. I would assume that there are people at Nintendo who want totally unified accounts just as much as we do.

    I just downloaded 1001 Spikes... Is anyone else experiencing audio issues? Such as a clicking sound in the levels that is constant, but random - in that it clicks at the start of the level, but if you die and start over, the issue may or may not present itself. Apart from the clicking sound, it seems that the depth, tonality of the music changed when starting over at one point. It's as if I was playing in a tunnel when this second issue presented itself. I tried web searching, but no results found for my concerns. Maybe it's just me?

    Yeah, there are a few audio glitches that they'll be fixing with a patch within the next few days. It was either do that or push the game itself back a few more weeks.

    I'm glad to know it's not just on my end. While the audio glitches make it unplayable for me, I'm just happy to have this game finally be made available. Thanks for the reply!

    I just breezed through the first world of Klonoa. The game is pretty much as good as I remember it. Tight controls, nice animations, and eventually it becomes a decent challenge.
