Nintendo Switch week is here, but the Wii U and 3DS eShop still have the usual updates on the way. In Europe this week's Nintendo Download Update has two new arrivals on the portable, while there are some tempting discounts across both systems; let's get to it.

3DS eShop

Mercenaries Saga 3 (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.99 / £5.89) - The Mercenaries Saga series has so far delivered a couple of solid budget RPGs; we quite enjoyed its first sequel earlier in the year. Now Mercenaries Saga 3: Gray Wolves of War has landed with another dramatic plot of war, power and danger - we'll check it out in a review.

Shift DX (Choice Publishing, €4.99 / £4.00) - This series, known for its key concept of being able to "shift" the playing field to a different angle and therefore tackle puzzles in an interesting way, has spawned many sequels across PC and IOS. This iteration includes all the levels from the first two games and 100 more stages besides, so there'll be plenty to tackle; we'll get stuck in for a review.
