Well, we have the final European Nintendo Download Update details of 2015, and there are a couple of iconic N64 games and an enticing 3DS option included. It's not exactly a packed week, but those with a taste for the slopes or the waves should be happy.
At the time of writing we've only seen the Dutch press release (our thanks to Daan Koopman), and will update with UK prices when available.
Wii U Virtual Console
1080° Snowboarding (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - Perfect for the season, unless you're in the UK where it's just raining constantly, as you can blast down the virtual slopes in this much-loved skiing title. You can take on races, the half-pipe or dramatic trick jumps, and this will certainly hold some fond memories for some. We enjoyed this in our Wii Virtual Console 1080° Snowboarding review and will take another look. This is the US version of the game.
Wave Race 64 (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - Another extreme sports racing title from the N64 era, this time with a summery vibe as you ride the waves and try to secure top spot. At the time its wave physics were a sight to behold, and we gave it plenty of praise in our Wii Virtual Console Wave Race 64 review; we'll jump in for a fresh look. This is the US version of the game.
Wii U Virtual Console Promotion
Get 50% off either 1080° Snowboarding or Wave Race 64 when you buy the other on the same Wii U system, a reduction to €4.99 - it'll therefore cost €14.98 to buy both.

3DS Retail Download
Story of Seasons (Nintendo, €39.99) - Actually a Harvest Moon release in Japan, this underwent a rebrand due to regional rights issues in the West. It maintains various conventional aspects of that series, such as farming and romance, while adding some pleasing new touches and plenty of charm. We gave this a recommendation in our Story of Seasons review.
