MK8 AChappy

A day later than is custom, we finally have the European Nintendo Download Update details to pore over. It's a week with one particularly notable DLC pack on Wii U to be excited about, along with some Virtual Console offerings, a special Kirby-themed promotion ahead of the arrival of Kirby and the Rainbow Painbrush, and more discounts besides.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mario Kart Super Circuit (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29) - Two of this game's tracks have been remastered for the latest MK8 DLC, but now racing fans in Europe can head a little closer to completing their collection of these racing games. This was the first portable Mario Kart game and went for a similar look to Super Mario Kart, doing a decent job in the process. Though this version lacks any multiplayer support we gave it a reasonable recommendation in our Wii U Virtual Console Mario Kart Super Circuit review.

Street Gangs (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) — This attempts to blend basic beat 'em up action with some simple RPG elements, as you bash in faces while buying items to help you on your way. It's basic and linear but also a lot of fun, while local multiplayer is an option; if you want to know more check out our 3DS Virtual Console Street Gangs review. This is the US version of the game.

Wii U DLC

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 (Nintendo, €8.00 / £7.00 or included in a season pass) - Featuring eight new tracks, three new characters (including boy and girl Villager variations) and four vehicles, this pack throws in cross-overs with Animal Crossing and F-Zero along with more all-new tracks and classic re-imaginings. A 200cc update will also be available to all for free. You can check out our hands on impressions of the full DLC pack for more details.
