With the start of a week comes the European Nintendo Download Update details. This time around Nintendo isn't aiming to overwhelm us with options (OK, that's a generous interpretation) but there are some tempting options nevertheless. We have two enticing retail releases on 3DS, along with a demo, DLC, some discounts and neat HOME Themes. Let's get to it.

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

3DS Retail Download

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Nintendo, €39.99/ £34.99) - This spin-off series continues on 3DS with 20 'mon to choose from at the start and the inclusion of all known Pokémon (720?!) to find and interact with. In many respects this delivers more of the same for the series, which doesn't have to be considered a bad thing; we gave this a modest recommendation in our Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon review. Available from 19th February, free 'Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Bonus Theme' 3DS HOME Theme with all purchases until 14th April.

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale (Marvelous, €34.99/ £29.99) - This rather appealing title is a crossover that combines the world of PopoloCrois - a popular fantasy manga series by Tamori Yousuke that's spawned anime adaptations and a half-dozen RPGs on Playstation platforms - with the farming fun of Story of Seasons, XSEED's recent rebranding of the long-running Bokujō Monogatari/Harvest Moon series. We're working on a review, but in the meantime you can check out our previous first impressions and interview with the game's localisation specialist.
