If you're interested in more information and impressions of Toki Tori 2, check out the post I made in the Wii U forum and the video archive of the livestream that I did to see it in action.

Was really hoping to see some sales similar the those on the European eShop.

I got Trine 2 for free on Plus but I'm considering picking up the Director's Cut so I can play it on the gamepad. Might have to pick up Toki Tori 2 while it's still on sale too. Thanks for the update Frisky.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Me too, but just downloaded demo and will play through it and decide.

If you're referring to the Ubisoft deal we had that a few months back.

So, is the "Digital Deluxe" promo for the Black Wii U active (ie: I've already bought some digital content, does it give me points right off the bat?), or do I have to activate it somehow?

How do I access this to see how many points I have? Thinking of downloading Trine 2, but I want to know if I have to activate something first to get the points....

Thank you Frisky. Do you know if my previous purchases will be counted?

It'll be a shame if my 3 NES games and Mighty Switch Force won't be registered, because that's halfway to a 5 dollar voucher.....

Hmm, checked my account, I only got 3 points per NES download, and only 49 for Mighty Switch force. Guess I didn't get as many points as I thought, but at least I got them!!!

It's basically 10% back for every $50 spent, so you get a point for every dime spent on the eShop.

Some of those have been on sale for a bit in the past two months, though there hasn't been a big group of games on sale since the Ubisoft sale. I thought the developers/publishers had control of pricing and sales, though I don't know why these games wouldn't be on sale everywhere if that were the case.

NOA has proven themselves to be bad at sales on the 3DS time and time again, so it's not a huge surprise.

Publishers do have control over the sales, did you ever think they just don't want to put it on sale in every region all the time? Maybe some regions have responded better to it than others.

It's a lot easier in terms of marketing to just have sales for everybody instead of just one region, as Toki Tori 2 and Trine 2 are doing.

F-Zero was on sale last month and Kirby's Adventure should be on sale next Thursday.

It's not that hard when there's one game on sale for most weeks.

That's a good price for Trine 2, any recommend it?

I tried the demo thought it was pretty good but how great is the game overall?

Espically in this day and age where everyone who follows any gaming blog will see the sales in other regions, and I know for me once I see it go for cheaper elsewhere I will usually hold out until I can get for hat same deal.

Kirby's Adventure is up for 30 cents. I believe this is also the last day you can get punch out

I believe Balloon Fight is still up for $5, but FZero disappeared from the eShop.

Nintendo confirmed that the Virtual Console service will be up on Wii U "shortly after" next week's system update. There's a trailer showcasing some of the games that'll be hitting (along with F-Zero returning).



Now I just wonder if we'll actually see sales on VC games this time around, though the 30 cent games are a great start.

I'm excited for the Virtual Console to launch proper, but I have a bad feeling they are going to just be drip feeding us things that have already been on the Wii virtual console for years rather than add new titles people want. The N64 was seriously underrepresented.
