Another week begins, dear readers, which means it's time for a look ahead to the Nintendo Download Update goodies coming to Europe. This week has a first-party eShop download and a long awaited retail release, while a huge upcoming Switch / Wii U title gets a couple of 3DS HOME Themes. There's more besides, so let's get to it.

3DS eShop

Tank Troopers (Nintendo, €7.99 / £7.19) - A cartoonish tank battle game announced in a Nintendo Direct last year and given a decent amount of promotion in Japan, in particular. 36 customisations are promised for tanks, accompanying a broad cast of characters and various maps and modes; there's support for up to six battlers in local multiplayer, too. We'll head into battle for a review.

3DS Retail Download

Dragon Ball Fusions (Bandai Namco, €39.99 / £34.99) - The latest entry in the popular series, this is an RPG that allows players to fuse characters together in strange combinations, while also being heavy on anime ingredients; the combat uses a rock/paper/scissors approach and there's also multiplayer battling. We rather enjoyed this in our Dragon Ball Fusions review. Available from 17th February.
