Some things don't even change in E3 week, whether it be the underwear of those of us watching everything unfold over three days or the arrival of the Nintendo Download Update. This week's North American update has a treat for Fire Emblem fans, some new eShop-only releases, discounts and reminders of content released over the past few days. Let's get to the details.

Missed the European Nintendo Download details earlier in the week? We don't blame you! Don't fret, the information you need is right here.

Wii U eShop

Life of Pixel (Super Icon Ltd, $9.99) - This is an intriguing platformer with the premise of each stage representing particular consoles and generations, while revisiting classic games with a backdrop of chiptune music. It sounds wonderful in practice and we'll see whether it delivers on that potential in our review.

Fat City (Heavy Iron Studios, $12.99) - What can we say about this game name? We have no idea, but the game itself has an isometric view in which you "help Chris and his team plan and pull off audacious heists from high-value targets to fill the coffers of a surreptitious crime syndicate in exchange for the life of a loved one." Phew, it sounds intense, and we'll get working on a review.

Solitaire Dungeon Escape (Jose Varela, $4.99) - A notable percentage of the human race has played Solitaire at some point, but it's been missing vital ingredients; these are namely danger, a Princess to rescue and what appear to be flying dinosaurs. This offers those things and 160 levels of Solitaire; we'll try to make sense of it in a review.

Wii U Virtual Console

EarthBound Beginnings (Nintendo, $6.99) - Announced and released during the Nintendo World Championships, this was the surprise arrival of the original Mother title on NES, localised to the West with this new title. A cult classic and favourite with fans, we'll bring you our review of this iconic RPG once the E3 extravaganza is finished.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (Nintendo, $7.99) - While this was the eighth title in the overall franchise, it was just the second release to make it outside of Japan. This particular Game Boy Advance turn-based strategy challenge should be well known to 3DS early adopters as a result of the Ambassador Programme of 2011, but now joins its impressive predecessor on the Wii U. We gave this a hearty recommendation in our Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones review.

Comic Workshop 2 (Collavier, $5.99 if you own Comic Workshop, otherwise $9.99) - Promising more responsive controls, new tools, better image quality and a plethora of other enhancements over the original, Comic Workshop 2 looks to be an excellent jumping-on point for veteran artists and newcomers alike.
