It's the start of another week, and as normal we have the European Nintendo Download Update releases to consider. It's a relatively busy week ahead with a couple of retail titles and some varied downloads across both eShop stores, so let's jump straight into the details.

Wii U Virtual Console

Hogan's Alley (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) - This was a Zapper game on the NES, and like Duck Hunt before it arrives on the Wii U with Remote pointer support, allowing modern gamers to sample the simple joys of light gun shooting. In this one you take on multiple levels shooting at spinning cardboard targets or shoot at tin cans to keep them up in the air; it all sounds pretty simple, but we'll take some shots for a review.

Wild Gunman (Nintendo, €4.99 / £3.49) - "You mean you have to use your hands? That's like a baby's toy!" Perhaps more famous for its cameo in Back to the Future: Part Two than as an actual game, this is another NES light gun title given the Wii Remote treatment. We'll head back to the past to bring you a review in the future, or something.

Wii U Retail Download

Just Dance 2016 (Ubisoft, €44.99 / £29.99) - More dancing shenanigans with some extra weirdness thrown in this year; there is a song about stepping on a Chihuahua, after all. The Wii U version will include support for the subscription-based Just Dance Unlimited (one month free with the purchase), which provides access to new songs and those from the older games. Available from 23rd October.

Wii U DLC

Just Dance Unlimited 30 day access (Ubisoft, €6.99 / £5.49)

Just Dance Unlimited 90 day access (Ubisoft, €14.99 / £11.99)

Just Dance Unlimited 365 day access (Ubisoft, €39.99 / £29.99)

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

Sanatory Hallways (Wegenbartho, €5.99 / £4.99 until 10th November, normally €9.99 / £8.99)

3DS eShop

Gunslugs 2 (Engine Software, €4.99 / £4.49) - Originally developed by OrangePixel, this is an intense pixel-based action game with randomly generated levels, pumping music and a notable '80s pop culture vibe. We'll have a review with you prior to launch, but until then you can check out our interview with the publisher and developer.

Wizdom (Moving Player, €9.99 / £8.99) - This title seems to blend match-three puzzling with aspects of exploration, with the fantastical plot placing you in the vital role of producing outfits to satisfy demanding clients. It sounds bonkers but could potentially be fun, so we'll check it out in a review.

3DS Retail Download

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (Nintendo, €39.99 / £34.99) - This spin off utilises the graphics engine and mechanics first seen in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, but shifts the focus to local and online co-op play. The totem mechanic with three players is absolutely vital, while single players need to work with 'doppels' that are switched around on the touch screen. Our review will be with you prior to release, but until then you can check out our full preview. Available from 23rd October. Free HOME Theme - "The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes: Totem Team" - for purchases made before 17th November.
