Another week begins with the Nintendo Download Update details in Europe. This week brings a couple much anticipated Wii U releases, a smartphone smash hit, more welcome puzzles and various discount options. Let's get to the details.
Wii U eShop
BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition (Frogmind, €9.99 / £8.99 until 13th August, then €11.99 / £10.79) - A stylish and promising release, this is a sidescrolling flying title which is part action and puzzle solving depending on the scenario. With new controls and HD visuals over the previous smart device version, the new edition also promises over 15 hours and 100 levels of single-player story content, 100 co-op levels, and 27 multiplayer deathmatch stages. We'll see whether it truly takes flight in our review.
Wii U Retail Download
Legend of Kay Anniversary (Nordic Games, €29.99 / £19.99 ) - A remaster of a fondly remember PS2 title, this promises new HD detail, leaderboards and 60fps performance, all for a budget retail price. We'll work on a review to see whether this is a worthy 10th Anniversary celebration. Available on 28th July.

Flick Golf 3D (Full Fat Productions, €4.99 / £4.49) - Hugely popular on smartphones, this touch-based arcade-style golfing now makes its way to the 3DS. There are three different modes to match your mood or time limitations, with simple gameplay that's designed to be addictive; we'll get into the swing of it for review, but until then you can check out our first impressions from earlier this year.
