A day later than normal courtesy of the holiday Monday, we now have the full Nintendo Download details for Europe. It's a packed week with multiple new downloads across Wii U and 3DS that have plenty of potential, along with a Wii Metroid arrival and a highly rated retro-style Nindie platformer. Beyond that there are a lot of Fire Emblem discounts and more besides, so let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

FreezeME (RNC, €9.99 / £8.80 until 7th April and then €13.99 / £12.59) - A 3D platformer that cites N64 titles as an inspiration and with some elements strongly reminiscent of Super Mario Galaxy, this includes a mechanic for freezing items that utilises the GamePad screen or Wii Remote pointer. It's certainly a slick and impressive offering from RNC, earning a strong recommendation in our FreezeME review.

Chompy Chomp Chomp Party (Utopian World of Sandwiches, €10.99 / £8.99) - A highly promising party game that utilises the Wii U's capabilities in allowing up to nine players to take part at once. There are a variety of modes that riff on the core concept of 'chompy' characters chasing and eating each other. We played this and had a hoot in the past, and will check out the full game to let you know what we think.

Tachyon Project (Eclipse Games, €9.99 / £8.99) - With a dramatic setting and storyline there'll be 10 levels in which the tale is told in this twin-stick shooter, with each having six progressive waves of enemies. There'll be three challenge levels with support for up to four players locally, while there are six weapons, nine secondary weapons, seven perks, over 30 enemy types and four bosses. We'll shoot every pixel in sight for our review.

The Beggar's Ride (Bad Seed, €7.99 / £7.49) - This is a puzzle platformer in which an old man dons a mask and is the recipient of mysterious powers, given the ability to manipulate the environment. We'll check it out for a review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Metroid: Other M (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - A title that caused quite a stir and some controversy when it arrived on Wii, this glossy and cinematic Metroid was co-developed by Team Ninja, incorporating 2D controls within a 3D environment along with some Wii Remote pointer aiming. An ambitious entry with a storyline and voice acting that's not to everyone's taste, it divided fans and critics. For our part we enjoyed it in our Metroid: Other M review.
