It's that time again, dear readers, for the North American Nintendo Download Update. This week includes the arrival of one of the world's most popular games on Switch, along with another ACA Neo Geo treat; the 3DS gets its own version of a rather good Wii U eShop game, too. Let's get to the details, shall we?

Nintendo Switch eShop

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition (Mojang, $29.99) - Arriving as a download (at a lower cost, too) before the equivalent cartridge in stores, this offers the full game 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.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves (HAMSTER, $7.99 / $9.87CAD) - 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.

3DS eShop

Elliot Quest (PlayEveryWare, $14.99) - 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.


As always Nintendo of America wants you to browse the eShop and check out the official sales and deals website for discount details. In addition there are some new rewards on My Nintendo to check out.
