April's first Nintendo Download kicks off with a quiet, but big week for Wii U's eShop. Toki Tori 2 finally hits at a slightly discounted price. The 3DS eShop gets a small update with two retail games and Castlevania for the Virtual Console. The Wii gets another Neo Geo game, and that rounds out this week's Nintendo Download.

    Meh. Nothing for me this week. I have Castlevania on GBA and Wii, love that game though, hard as balls but worth it.

    I'll wait for reviews/impressions of Toki Tori 2. There is so much stuff on my 3DS eShop backlog, I ain't even mad this week stinks.

    My Toki Tori 2 review.
    Sounds good! I am happy that it's distinctly different from the first title in the series.

    Great review! Was looking forward to yours and I think it just convinced me to buy it once it hits the eShop later.

    Is that a Neo Geo game that isn't a fighter? And what a great name: NAM-1975. Quite expected that it's 900 points since I doubt a game with that name could have come out in the US in the 90s. I wonder if it's any good.

    Bought Toki Tori 2 and have put in a little over an hour already, it's delightful. Already got stuck two or three times, mostly in the hidden area(s) of some of the early levels. The levels & puzzles seem really cleverly designed, almost Metroidvania-esque. It's gorgeous in HD, and looks pretty good on the GamePad screen. And you only have to press the - Button to switch between the TV & GamePad. Pretty much love everything about it so far.

    Not a bad week for downloads. Might pick up escapeVektor at that price, too.

    Any more on this game? Caught my attention, too.

    Aren't all Neo-Geo games 900 Points? I'm pretty sure they are, but I haven't been on the Wii's Virtual Console in a long time.

    Anyway, NAM-1975 is a third-person, "over-the-shoulder" shooter. Plays kind of like Wild Guns on SNES, except less verticality, I think. I've not played it, but it looks decent enough for shooter fans.

    Here's some footage:

    Man, what is with that shirtless guy? Clearly some women made this game. I'm uncomfortable with the opening.

    Oh yeah, it does kinda look Wild Gunsish. Why are those guys jumping OFF hit boat into the water? Wouldn't they be his allies then? If they're on his boat, why don't they just shoot him from on the boat? Weird.

    Wicked cutscene at 4:07. Luckily he destroyed all of their religious architecture so its fine now.

    So yeah, this game looks pretty awesome.
