The Nintendo Download Update is now live in Europe, though two new releases on the eShop actually arrived earlier in the week. Elsewhere we have a Switch demo, a welcome free update for a huge Wii U title and a mix of other new games and discounts. Let's get to it, shall we?

Nintendo Switch eShop

Tumbleseed (aeiowu, €13.99 / £11.99) - Released earlier in the week this is a project spearheaded by Greg Wohlwend, described as a 'rolly roguelike' in which you carefully balance a seed and navigate it through tricky environments. It's colourful, intriguing and devilishly difficult, as we explain in our Tumbleseed review.

Blazing Star (HAMSTER, €6.99 / £6.29) - Also released earlier in the week, this is widely regarded as one of the Neo Geo's finest blasters, and in its original physical format commands a massive price on the secondary market. As an ACA release it'll have various options for online leaderboard, display settings and more.

Citadale - The Legends Trilogy (Nitrolic Games, €4.66 / £3.98 / CHF 4.95 if you own Citadale, otherwise €8.49 / £7.25) - This appears to be an expansion / follow-up to the original Citadale, which 'includes all three chapters of Citadale' and continues the story. We gave the original a modest recommendation.

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

FIFTEEN (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - Previously released on New 3DS this recreates sliding tile puzzles, but in this case you're trying to arrange numbers into the right order.
