It's a Bank Holiday in some countries but Nintendo has still sent out the European Nintendo Download Update details, albeit a little later than usual. This week we have some interesting new arrivals on the eShop stores and a lot of discounts, which are sure to tempt some gamers. Let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

Sweetest Thing (Joindots, €6.99/ £5.49) - This is a cheery time and resource management game set in 'Candy Land' that has previously been released on PC. Your job is to gather, fix and build to bring the 'realm' back to its best - we'll see whether it's sweet or gives us broken teeth in a review.

REPTILIAN REBELLION (Herrero, €1.99 / £1.79) - This looks like a relatively simplistic isometric-view shooter, in which you control a central character shooting at slow-moving enemies coming from the left and right. We'll see whether it's worth a look in our review.

PENTAPUZZLE (RCMADIAX, €4.49 / £4.09) - The latest release from the prolific Wii U eShop developer is a collection of 70 stages in which you rearrange shapes to fill pre-designated areas, with a range of difficulty levels to test your visualisation puzzle-solving abilities. We gave this an 'average' in our review.

Wii U Nintendo Selects Downloads

These were actually released on 15th April and previously covered, though some (not all) from the latest range are in Nintendo's press release citing a 7th May release date, presumably for some countries yet to receive them. In the interest of being thorough we've included them once again.

3DS eShop

Pocket Card Jockey (Game Freak / Nintendo, €6.99 / £6.29) - A title that emerged from Game Freak's initiative to encourage its teams to try new ideas, this blends fast-paced Solitaire with horse racing, along with all sorts of extra details to take care of as you try and ride your way to the top. The extensive demo can also be used to transfer progress, and we'll see whether it's worth a punt in a review.
