Another week is underway, and as always we have the European Nintendo Download update to get us up and running. This week brings some high profile DLC and a promising download release on Wii U, while the 3DS has one of its biggest retail releases of the year alongside a couple of download games and even more DLC. There's the usual batch of discounts across both systems too, so let's get to it.
Wii U eShop
PixelJunk Monsters HD (Double Eleven, €8.99 / £6.99) - Originally developed by Q-Games around nine years ago, this title (and the broader PixelJunk series) has been ever-present on PSN (PlayStation Network). Arriving on Wii U is this tower defence entry in which you protect your offspring across 47 different environments. We'll let you know what we think in a review.
Wii U DLC
Minecraft: Wii U Edition - The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack (Microsoft, free) - The pack will feature a whole lot of skins, world and item textures, along with music from Super Mario 64; full details are right here. Available from 18th May.
LEGO MARVEL'S Avengers: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Pack (WB Games, €2.99 / £2.50)

Digger Dan DX (€0.99 / £0.89 introductory price, then €1.99/ £1.79) - An improved version of Digger Dan & Kaboom, as the name suggests you need to manoeuvre through a range of mines and environments while collecting treasure. 100 levels are promised, so we'll dig into it and let you know what we think.
KAMI (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39) - Previously released in early April, it's being included in the update once again. A clever and visually appealing paper-based puzzle title in which you create folds for a relaxing experience. A hand-crafted Japanese paper theme and 63 puzzles come together well in this one, as we gave it a solid recommendation in our KAMI review.
3DS Retail Download
Fire Emblem Fates Birthright / Conquest (Nintendo, €44.99/ £39.99 for one version, download the second for €19.99/ £17.99) - Following the vital success of Fire Emblem: Awakening, Intelligent Systems returns with this dual release (along with a third download-only part that's on the way soon), and in addition to a sizeable adventure there are changes to some key mechanics, along with improved and more immersive visuals. It's an excellent release and full of detail - learn all about its intricacies in our Fire Emblem Fates review. Available from 20th May.
