The Download Update is live in Europe, and we have the details thanks to a bit of eShop browsing and help from the always generous Daan Koopman. It's a pretty decent line-up once again, with a high-profile 3DS arrival and some tempting Switch downloads; there's a solid batch of discounts, too. Let's get to it.

Nintendo Switch eShop

Mr. Shifty (tinyBuild Games, €14.99 / £13.49) - An intense top-down action game, with the HD Rumble designed to allow you to "feel every punch, shot and crash". The character can shift through space, as the name suggests, and it looks rather fun; we're shifting through a review right now to let you know what we think of it.

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 (Jackbox Games, €23.99 / £20.03) - This could be a popular one, as this is a game that brings together five quirky and distinctly grown up party games, supporting up to eight players in various ways. We'll gather some of our favourite people and bring you a review.

Samurai Shodown IV (HAMSTER, €6.99 / £6.29) - Another fighting game from the Neo Geo, though for some in our team this is right up there among their favourites in the genre; for some reason we start with number 4. It certainly looks like it puts up a good fight, and as always there'll be various customisation options and goodies in this 'ACA' release.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe (Nintendo, free) - This picks up on an extra mode in Kirby: Planet Robobot and adds more content along with a free-to-start setup. You team up with AI or buddies in local multiplayer to take down various bosses and foes, with each Kirby having different skillsets. We'll see how this free-to-download version squares up in a review.
