With the start of another week we have the European Nintendo Download Update details, and this time around there's plenty on offer. We have some highly promising options on the Wii U, while the 3DS has a major release from Capcom and a trilogy of SNES releases on the New 3DS Virtual Console. Throw in a lot of discounts and there's plenty of choice, so let's take a look.

Wii U eShop

Jotun: Valhalla Edition (Thunder Lotus Games, €13.49 / £10.79 until 15th September, normally €14.99/ £11.99) - A well-regarded title that Nintendo is promoting as one of the key 'Nindie' releases this month, it adopts an overhead view as you battle to prove yourself to the Gods. It has eye-catching visuals and is steeped in Norse mythology, and certainly looks promising; we'll bring you a review but, in the meantime, we had a chat with the developers just before E3 that you can check out.

140 (Double Fine Productions, €7.99 / £5.59) - This has a minimalistic aesthetic for its blend of puzzle platforming. Developed by Carlsen Games / Abstraction Games this seems to be oozing style, and has a nice soundtrack to boot. We'll see whether it all adds up well in our review.

Vektor Wars (Super Icon Ltd, €7.99 / £7.99 ) - A first-person shooter with stylised vector-based visuals, this has '9 world zones' in which you blast away at a variety of robot foes. We rather like this for some intense arcade-style action, as we explain in our Vektor Wars review.

Rorrim (Nitrolic Games, €4.52 / £4.09) - A Princess gets sucked into a mirror and a world of dungeons, and you have to guide her through maze-like areas from a top-down perspective. The twist here is that the GamePad and the TV show 'Mirror' and 'Real' viewpoints, so you need both to solve the puzzles and make progress. We'll go on a rescue mission and let you know what we think.

Alice in Wonderland (Brave Rock Games, €4.52 / £3.78) - This appears to be a narrated visual novel with some illustrations as you read along and listen. We'll see whether it does a classic book justice in our review.

TOUCH SELECTIONS (RCMADIAX, €2.99 / £2.69) - This combines two previous releases in one download: PEG SOLITAIRE and AVOIDER.

3DS eShop

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice (Capcom, €29.99 / £24.99) - The latest in the series to make its way to the West as a download, this one features an extended cast of familiar faces, a mystical location and new features and twists such as séance trials. We're working on a review, but until then you can check out our impressions of the E3 demo.

Kingdom's Item Shop (CIRCLE Ent, $5.00 / £4.79) - A quirky premise in which you run an item shop in a fantasy land, catering to heroes and their needs. You're supposed to set out and find new ingredients and goods to sell, however, and we suspect this one will aim to be as charming as possible. We'll open the doors on a review soon.

New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

Final Fight (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — This is one of the earlier arcade conversions to the Super NES, and an iconic beat 'em up that's certainly welcome on the New portable's Virtual Console. Though this beat 'em up port lacks the co-op play that made the arcade a classic it's still enjoyable, as we explained in our New 3DS Virtual Console Final Fight review.

Final Fight 2 (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — This second entry rights some wrongs of the first, including multiple playable characters and two-player co-op (the description for this New 3DS version does mention you can "have a friend join the fight"), though perhaps disappoints with some gameplay elements. You can see what we thought in our Wii U Virtual Console Final Fight 2 review, while we'll take to the streets again to take a fresh look.

Final Fight 3 (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19 or buy 2 get the 3rd free on New 3DS VC Final Fight trilogy) — Rounding off the Super NES trilogy of titles hitting the New 3DS VC this week, this one includes more brawling on the streets but also the option of an automatic two player mode where you play with the CPU. By our reckoning this third entry is probably the best of the group, as explained in our Wii U Virtual Console Final Fight 3 review.
