Another week begins with a Nintendo Download Update, and this week focuses on discounts. We only have one fresh release on the Wii U Virtual Console while the 3DS receives a demo, putting the emphasis on price drops. Let's get to it.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mega Man & Bass (Capcom, €6.99 / £6.29) - Right from the off you choose to play as Mega Man or Bass - or use a save state to have both - and each has different abilities; Bass can shoot in eight directions when stood still, which sounds remarkably handy. This may not necessarily live up to the highs of the best main series games, but we still gave this a solid recommendation in our Mega Man & Bass review.
