The Nintendo Download Update is here, once again, and it's a busy line-up in Europe. We have four titles on the Switch eShop (though one actually arrived on 9th May), along with a whole lot of DLC. There are also varied options across 3DS and Wii U including a lot of discounts. Let's get to it.

Nintendo Switch eShop

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition (Mojang, €29.99 / £19.99) - Arriving as a download (at a lower cost, too) before the equivalent cartridge in stores, this offers the full experience as enjoyed in Minecraft: Wii U Edition but on your shiny new hybrid system. There's obvious appeal in having this one on the go, and the Super Mario-themed content is all present and correct. We loved this version in our review. Available from 2am UK / 3am CET on 12th May.

NBA Playgrounds (Saber Interactive, €19.99 / £17.99) - Released earlier this week. With its 2 vs 2 gameplay, outrageous dunks and even elbow throwing, plenty will naturally think about NBA Jam with this one. Rosters are built through earning card packs (though this is achievement-based, not microtransactions) and you try to beat the best to rule the courts. We're waiting for the promised online update before issuing a final score, but you can see what we think of it so far in our NBA Playgrounds review.

Dark Witch Music Episode: Rudymical (Flyhigh Works, €8.00 / £6.99) - A spin-off to the 3DS games, this is a rhythm action game where you press the buttons in time to cut down Boing boings (bullets). You'll also need to jump at opportune times in order to avoid fiendish fire beams. We'll find our rhythm and let you know what we think in a review.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves (HAMSTER, €6.99 / £6.29) - Thought of by some as Fatal Fury 4, Mark of the Wolves debuts a roster of almost entirely new characters. If you are on the lookout for a great brawler to tide you over until Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers later this month, this could be the one for you - that said, we also have games like the brilliant The King of Fighters '98 battling for our attention on the Switch eShop. As a Neo Geo ACA release it'll also have more customisation options than you can shake a stick at.

New Nintendo 3DS eShop

Pixel Hunter (Lemondo Games, €2.99 / £2.69) - This is a sidescrolling platformer that incorporates 3D Voxel-based visuals; your task is to run through five worlds (with some runner sections and boss fights included) and win back your character's weapons which have, apparently, been stolen by animals. Unfortunately we weren't fans of this in our Pixel Hunter review.

Triple Breakout (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.99) - This aims to blend Breakout and Pong mechanics, with the chance to chase high scores or compete against the AI.

3DS eShop

Elliot Quest (PlayEveryWare, €10.99 / £9.99 until 31st May for those with the Wii U version on the same Nintendo Account, otherwise €14.99 / £13.49) - This was a quality title on the Wii U eShop and has been reworked for Nintendo's portable. This iteration adds some extra collectibles and Miiverse stamps along with autostereoscopic visuals; it could be well worth a look.

Wii U eShop

WinKings (Lemondo Games, €9.99 / £8.99) - This appears to be a game focused on fast-paced and chaotic arena battles, but beyond versus local battles there's also a campaign that can be played solo or in co-op. There's a Viking theme and apparently "120+ co-op and versus levels", so in principle this seems like one to watch closely.
