Another week begins, and as usual we have the Nintendo Download Update for Europe to get us started. This week seems to have a pretty strong line-up, with three excellent retro experiences accompanying a retro-style Nindie release on the Wii U. A delayed retail title also lands on the home console, while the 3DS highlight comes with a Japanese import from Atlus, while the portable also has a lot of discounts. Let's get to the details.

Wii U eShop

Roving Rogue (Padaone Games, €7.99 / £7.19) - This joins the run of retro-styled platformers on the Wii U, in this case including a co-op experience with plenty of running, jumping and teleporting. With 42 levels this promises much, and we'll see whether it hits its targets or goes rogue in our review.

Wii U Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - Widely acknowledged as one of the finest games of all time, this Nintendo 64 classic makes its way to the Wii U; the iconic adventure title has previously had re-releases on the GameCube and Wii Virtual Console, in addition to its 3DS remaster. A true great in its genre, we gave this a perfect score in our Wii Virtual Console review back in 2007. This is the European version of the game with corrected aspect ratio.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - The first entry in the strategy series on DS, and it's also a remake of the very first NES game that didn't make it to the West. Another member of the rich RPG and strategy tradition on the last-gen handheld, we gave this a solid recommendation in our original Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon review.

Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising (Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29) - This gives us our Game Boy Advance fix for the week, continuing Intelligent Systems' excellent warfare strategy series. Picking up directly from the first game, this entry introduces new units and strategies into the formula; we'll get onto the battlefield to bring you a review.

Wii U Retail Download

LEGO Jurassic World (WB Games, €49.99/ £34.99) - The delay to this Wii U release in Europe was never fully explained beyond 'supply' issues from retailers, but in any case the HD iteration of this title arrives on the eShop on 30th June in mainland Europe and 3rd July in the UK.

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

SDK Paint (HullBreach Studios, €3.39 / £2.99 until 9th July, normally €4.49 / £3.99)

Ittle Dew (Ludosity, €4.99 / £4.49 until 30th July, normally €9.99 / £8.99)

3DS eShop

Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains (Atlus, €29.99 / £34.99) - Better known as Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, this retail title comes to Europe as an eShop-only release, though the localisation is certainly great news for fans of the hit anime show. This surreal title has some exciting combat yet also has its shares of niggles and rough edges; nevertheless we gave it a recommendation in our comprehensive Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains review.

Mighty Gunvolt (Inti Creates, €3.49 / £3.19) - This is a retro-styled throwback with simple run and gun gameplay reminiscent of a certain Capcom franchise. Available for free with Azure Striker Gunvolt until 2nd July, this is the less expensive option for those that only want this smaller release; we gave it a strong recommendation in our Mighty Gunvolt review.

Fantasy Pirates (EnjoyUp Games, €1.99 / £1.99) - Another entry from the prolific Spanish publisher / developer, this is a 15-stage adventure in which you navigate your pirate boat with 360-degree movement to find treasure and sink rivals; it's also promising a 1 vs. 1 online mode. We'll take to the seas for a review.

Karous -The Beast of Re:Eden- (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.99 / £4.79) - A vertically scrolling shmup out of Japan, this puts you in charge of a mech in which you obliterate many waves of enemies across plenty of levels. Unfortunately its attempts at plot fall short and are only backed up by mediocre gameplay; you can get the full lowdown in our Karous -The Beast of Re:Eden- review.
