Another week begins and we have a modest batch of games to consider in the European Nintendo Download Update. There are the two versions of the final Mega Man Battle Network title on the Wii U Virtual Console, a neat demo on 3DS, DLC and the option to pre-purchase a major retail release coming later in the month. Throw in some discounts and a 3DS HOME Theme and that's the lot, so let's get to it.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mega Man Battle Network 6: Cybeast Falzar / Gregar (Capcom, €6.99 / £6.29) - Rather like with the 'Classic' originals on NES, Capcom decided that six was the magic number for this particular series on Game Boy Advance. We've rather enjoyed this RPG series, albeit the evolution between each entry has been minimal at times, and both versions of this sixth entry arrive with their minor differences. We'll bring you a review soon.
