DSiWare Games:

Escape the Virus: Shoot'em Up - $1.99
Take on hordes of vicious viruses in two different modes, including a shooter mode and a territory mode where you protect certain zones and keep them clear of enemies. Take advantage of bonus items and power-ups to take down the viruses.

3DS Demos:

Looks like a pretty good crop. I'm interested in 4 of them.

Of course the demo for TFF would finally  be released right after demand for the game seemingly skyrockets and the price is raised to 50 dollars in many places... Oh well.


I played the 2 songs that the demo comes with repeatedly for half an hour straight, I'm in love!

Apparently the Square Tax increases over time?

*hugs release-day copy of Theatrhythm*

Okkkk, started the video Outdoors Unleashed to be immediately greeted with running down and shooting elephants...decided it wasn't for me.

$4 seems like a pretty good price for SpeedX. It looks fairly shallow but for that price I'll probably end up getting it.

Anyone else notice that the Theatrhythm demo has "unlimited" uses?

But only 2 songs. And one's from FFXIII...

*pulls out his Nightstick and starts nonchalantly rapping it against his palm*

You say that like there's a problem with the FF XIII soundtrack.  ;)

I'm actually quite fond of that OST.  It's probably one of the more underrated soundtracks, as is FF 8's so it's fitting that the demo would include songs from both.  It's just a pity that FF 8 is one of the most underrepresented games in Theatrhythm, as it's had barely any (if any at all) DLC songs and some of the most notable tracks in that game aren't on the card by default.

It didn't look like a badly made game considering the price and genre... but I had the exact same reaction.

This is 10% speculation and 90% wishful thinking, but could the release of the Theatrythm demo mean that the game will soon be available as the first third party downloadable retail game?

I'd put that more in 99.9% wishful thinking.
