It's time to brighten up Monday mornings in Europe, with the latest Nintendo Download Update having decent odds of achieving that goal. There is a whole smorgasbord of games and discounted goodies to consider, so let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

Trine Enchanted Edition (Frozenbyte, €12.99 / £10.99) - Its Wii U release has taken a little longer than originally expected, but this will allow fans of Trine 2: Director's Cut to become acquainted with the start of this franchise. Featuring online and local co-op just like its successor, this improved version of the original brings its visuals and more in line with the standard set in the sequel, enhancing what was already a rather attractive game. We found it to be positively spellbinding in our Trine Enchanted Edition review. Discounted to €10.39 / £8.79 for users who have downloaded Trine 2: Director's Cut on the same Wii U.

Suspension Railroad Simulator (Joindots, €7.99 / £5.99) - Experience the unique atmosphere of the Wuppertal Suspension Railroad Simulator! For over 100 years, this unique vehicle has connected the entire German city of Wuppertal and transports 82,000 people on an average day. Now you can drive the Suspension Railroad Simulator virtually on its original track. We'll get on the railroad and bring you a review in the near future.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mega Man Zero 3 (Capcom, €6.99 / £6.29) - In the third chapter of the Mega Man Zero series, the robotic hero must again come to the aid of Neo Arcadia; this time when danger looms in the shape of a new, giant Reploid: Omega! Fortunately, Zero's arsenal is now even more powerful. New customisation chips replace the previous Form system, allowing you to combine chips to adapt to any situation, and the Cyber Elf system has also been overhauled. We'll bring you a review soon.

3DS eShop

Excave (Teyon, €4.99 / £4.49) - Imperial City is at war! The King needs you to explore the perilous and ancient Labyrinth beneath the city – find out why this mysterious magical laboratory now spews out an army of powerful monsters bent on destruction, and descend to its lowest depths to rescue the missing Magician. Triumph in a test of your weapons & magic, or perish trapped deep within the twisting halls of the Labyrinth. Be sure to check out our Excave review for more info on this charming RPG.

Adventure Bar Story (CIRCLE Ent, €4.99 / £3.99) - This is an RPG set in a fantasy world in which you go on adventures with party members and manage a bar. Your bar is facing a hostile takeover by a rich restaurant owner, Gustav. Gustav is a powerful man and he will try to drive you out of business and force you to sell the bar. Find out what we thought in our Adventure Bar Story review.

Jet Dog (Bigben Interactive, €7.99 / £7.19) - Send your dog flying as far through the air as possible with a stroke of the Nintendo 3DS stylus and unlock the equipment that will let you beat all the distance records. A simple, quick, funny and extremely addictive game for the entire family. Watch out for our upcoming review.

Titanic Mystery (Joindots, €4.99 / £4.49) - Take a trip on the all-new RMS Titanic, the greatest, most luxurious ocean liner ever built. Exactly 100 years after the original ship sailed on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, the all-new Titanic sets off on the same voyage. Built with the same level of luxury and extravagance, but with modern-day safety designs and up-to-date lifeboats. But, shortly after you set sail you find out that someone on board has plans to blow the ship up. It is up to you to find the bomb and unmask the culprit by solving a series of puzzles and riddles.

3DS Retail

LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin (WB Games, €39.99 / £29.99) - There is a new threat in Ninjago, and he goes by the name of Ronin. With help from his army of dark samurai, Ronin steals the Ninjas' memories using an ancient weapon called the Obsidian Glaive. In LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin, it is up to players to help the Ninjas regain their memories and reclaim their powers before Ronin completes his plan and releases an even greater evil on Ninjago.

Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones: Wildfire (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - In this huge football RPG, the player stars as a young schoolboy, Arion Sherwind, who discovers football has been erased from existence by an evil organisation from the future! Recruit the ultimate squad, travel through time, and win matches against rivals to rediscover Arion's friends, and restore football to its former glory in Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones: Wildfire on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS!

Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones: Thunderflash (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - Just three months after the events of Inazuma Eleven GO, Arion Sherwind returns to Raimon Jr. High to discover a baseball field where the football pitch once was. Worse still, there is no sign of the club, while students quietly enjoy other activities, like gymnastics, music and calligraphy – it's as if football never existed! With the arrival of some mysterious time travellers from 200 years in the future, it becomes clear that Arion is the only one who can save the beautiful game! And that's where things kick off, as you travel through time to explore a huge game world, uncover secret plots, battle rival teams to prove your prowess, and restore football to glory!

SpongeBob HeroPants (Activision, £19.99) - Only a hero would dare to enter the world of SpongeBob's cotton candy and rainbow filled mind! Play as fan favourite characters in regular form or as heroes from the movie! You can even play as Plankton!
