A racer, a chicken, and a Moogle walk into the Nintendo Download

What? You heard this one already? That's doubtful considering this is one of the stranger assortments of games to have appeared on the eShop in a while. 

The headline game this week is Speed X 3D, a futuristic racer where you careen through the deepest recesses of the final frontier, all while speeding along a techno, Tron-like racetrack. It looks kinda neat and I dig the trippy visuals- even with the not-so-great obstacle pop-in.

Also this week, the demo for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is up and ready to rock. Get a taste for a game that we simply adore here at Digitally Downloaded and is scoring all kinds of love from both critics and players.

Finally, aside from a music video and a few toss-aways for the 3DS and DSi, we've got Toki Tori (GBC). Admittedly, I've never had the pleasure of playing (much less ever hearing of) Toki Tori, but I have to say I'm intrigued.

This GameBoy Colour classic sees you cast as a small, yellow... chicken. You're goal is to survive a bunch of monsters in what looks like a haunted castle while collecting your missing eggs. It's just... yeah. Might have to play this one.
