    Might want to edit your eidt...

    Anyway, nothing for me this week (yet). I do want River King and HarmoKnight at some point, but $15 is a bit much to swallow after my four Wii U game purchases this month (not including Zen Pinball and the DLC I bought for it). Plus I've still got to finish Fire Emblem Awakening...

    @GameDadGrant

    But 3DS can't play Wii U games like Toki Tori 2 now, can it?

    @ludist210

    Yeah, I'll have to skip over Toki Tori 2 I guess. Oh well, I've got Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon here so I'll survive.

    Hey by the way, do you think it would be a good idea to put the prices of the retail games in the OP? Just for convenience sake for those that don't wanna check the eShop for prices?

    Toki Tori 2 will be 14.99$ at regular price but is apparently launching with a 10% discount.

    Ridiculous! Everyone knows Nintendo's online stores never have sales or discounts!

    @GameDadGrant

    Usually I don't write prices for retail games OP because Nintendo's site doesn't list them for retail games on their respective pages (if they do, I'm completely missing that section). If I waited for the eShop to update before posting the news, it'd be late getting out...so I just don't anymore for accuracy's sake unless I know the price has been verified in advance.

    @VofEscaflowne

    I read that. Dangit, another game next week...I guess that's a good problem to have.

    Definitely gonna get HarmoKnight, the demo was great and I want to play some more story-based rhythm games.

    All the cool kids are saying eidt now, didn't you know?

    Okay, having just played the HarmoKnight demo I think I can safely say that 2013 is becoming a banner year for the 3DS, first Fire Emblem, then Luigi's Mansion, and now HarmoKnight, the AAA goodness just keeps coming! HarmoKnight is wonnnnderfullll!!!!

    Toki Tori 2 is coming next week and from what I've played at PAX, it's excellent. It's completely different from the first game, too, except for the character movement and the cuteness of it all.

    I'll post my impressions once they're up on NWR.

    Damn, I really want HarmoKnight, but I've been waiting on Toki Tori 2 forEVER. And I'm broke. what do I- VofEscaflowne said:

    I think HarmoKnight will have to wait a few weeks ...

    Also, Revelaitons for $20 on the e-Shop is pretty sweet. I'll be picking that up at some point.

    Buying TT2 gives you points that eventually give you $5 that you can put towards HarmoKnight.

    oh man, you're right, that's what I'll do!

    @Guillaume

    Thanks for the reminder...I got a code after the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed purchase. Maybe I'll use that to get Legend of the River King.

    I got two DDP codes ready to go! The only disc-game I currently own is Zombiu

    Anyone else download that tool that allows you to transfer a save file from a retail copy of a game to the digital version? Any impressions on how well (or how awful) that works?

    Did anyone pick up River King? I'm strongly considering it.

    Holy shit- just took a glance and REvelaitons is over 25K blocks! That one may NEVER BE TOPPED!!!

    If Metal Gear Solid 3D ever hits the eShop, I think that game is actually bigger. And I've heard the Japan-only E.X. Troopers is larger, too. Not sure if true, though.

    @TriforceBun

    It's a Gameboy Color game that's all about....fishing, right? Or something of that nature?

    I really really really really really really want E.X. Troopers. I'm a little pissed that game isn't getting localized.

    @deathly_hallows

    Yeah, it's dumb it's not coming over. But the developers said it would be "too complicated" to localize.

    A game that is too complicated to localize. Ha. Coming from the same company that somehow got Tatsunoko vs Capcom localized and sold here.

    @GameDadGrant
    Yeah I don't get that, it's a shooter! If there's VO just leave it in Japanese and do subtitles, no one cares, we just want to shoot stuff, co-op style!

    @deathly_hallows

    Right?!?

    Well, I guess we can do that in Resident Evil...but it's nice to have more options.

    I picked up River King! It's a pretty unique title--in traditional Natsume fashion it takes something seemingly boring (fishing) and mixes it with RPG elements to make it addictive.

    Well, it's kind of addictive, anyway. To be honest, the fishing element itself is a little hit-or-miss; it's kind of annoying having to wait for a bite on the GB (where the ambience isn't particularly great), and the reeling mechanics are a little strange and unintuitive when compared to stuff like how Zelda does it. It is an awfully quirky little game, though, (battling wild animals is especially strange) and interesting enough for me to keep playing.
