Quick, to the eShop! Toki Tori Plans to escapeVektor and head to Castlevania

For many Wii U owners, having the console is been an experience in itself. What other gaming console out there comes with a controller that holds a built in screen? Even so, newest reports stemming from the Battlefield 4 reveal and the Game Developers Conference (GDC) suggests that the console won’t be seeing the light of two software engines in the near future. One being the Unreal Engine 4 and the other, the Frostbite.

However the console is shaping up, Nintendo fans are stark filled with loyalty in the midst of technological adversity. There is no doubt that many are hoping for more from their investment, but many are left uncertain if that will be enough.

If you were to look at the current games available, such as LEGO City Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, or Deus Ex: Director’s Cut, you’d expect more from the rest of the developers on the forefront of video game creation. Who knows, the next Nintendo based developer could spawn from simply picking up an art themed game.

Now, on to the games!

If you want to jump in on the creative side of things, look no further than the 3DS eShop. The artistic application known as Colors! 3D is now receiving an update. You can follow a favorite artist and challenge others in paint-a-thons. Much like an art collector, you can tag and search paintings that you think are “just to die for, dawwling.”

If you have seen games like Cell: emergence, then you can probably relate to escapeVektor. Help Vektor out of the bindings of a CPU as you scour 150 levels. There are multiple power-ups to unlock from Detonation, to the Boost(s).

The game receives a 50-percent price cut deal which is only promised for a limited time with no details on an end date.

Nothing like the old puzzler-platformer-chicken game, eh? Toki Tori 2 is as oddly unique as its title. Take on various puzzles and endeavors as you get to the root of the evil on this island. Utilize many skills, such as landing on top of or whistling at enemies to put them to work for you. Command help as you explore the island and its collectibles.

The game promises a challenging experience, even so much as to “dare you to find all it has to offer!” Wondering if the description for the game will ever regret having that published.

Another classic title sees the light of day on the handheld known as the 3DS. The games just about a month after Castlevania: Lords of Shadow-Mirror of Fate graces the console with must esteem.
