Just saw it on Miiverse and checked the shop. I live in the US and have a US Wii U.

575 MB. 30 uses.

Go get it folks!

Edit: As is the Sonic Racing demo. Weighs in at 1172 MB. 15 uses.

Edit 2: Now up for EU and AUS

Sanic Racing is as well. Would probably be better to update the OP instead of creating a new thread.

I bought and downloaded Arkham City earlier today. Was over 20GB. Took a couple of hours.

This 500MB demo is taking over half an hour. Yeeeaaahhhhh

Guess I shouldn't be too surprised, but the Wii U is limited to downloading one game at a time apparently.

It ques them up in the same way both of the other consoles do. Why would you want it to split the bandwidth across multiple games? It'd just take longer for all of them.

Because you can max out your connection better on multiple things going at once versus a single download at a time. You may not finish 1 as fast, but downloading multiple at once means overall it'll be faster (or it would if Nintendo's servers weren't so limited).

It is more demanding on the server to do so though, so again... not surprising.

Speaking of Rayman, I've been looking for some 3D platformers to play. I hear Rayman 2 s good? Is there a superior version of it to look for? Is it still worth my time years later?

EShop really needs a demo section. It doesn't make sense to have people clicking on every title just to see if a demo is available or not.

But it does have a demo section?

edit: oh, the US store doesn't have one? Odd.

Fantastic demo. Contains three levels -- Teensies in Trouble, Toad Story, and Castle Rock. Dunno if that's the same as the kiosk since I never played that demo.

IIRC, Castle Rock and Teensies were in the kiosk demo. Toad Story sounds new.

The demo I played at the Wii U experience had only Teensies in Trouble and Castle Rock for me. I think Toad Story is new then as far as hands-on.

Also, will add to OP.

Aaaaaaand I got my $37 Rayman Legends preorder still. Feels real good in my heart.

Good to hear they added another level! All three are pretty excellent. For some reason I figured they might lower the difficulty of the game overall, but if these levels are any indicator, looks like the difficulty is right where it's supposed to be. :) Can't wait for the full game!
