The Nintendo Download Update is live in Europe so it's time to see what's on offer this time around. There's a retail arrival on the 3DS, while the Switch has a couple of download-only options to tempt you. The Wii U also gets into the action and there's plenty of DLC doing the rounds, so let's get to it.

Nintendo Switch eShop

Astro Duel Deluxe (Panic Button, €13.99 / £12.59) - This focuses primarily on colourful multiplayer gaming inspired by retro titles such as Asteroids, though there are modern twists and multiple modes and stages to shake things up. We gave this a recommendation in our Astro Duel Deluxe review.

ACA NeoGeo Last Resort (HAMSTER, €6.99 / £6.29) - This SNK-developed 1992 shoot 'em up is a little less familiar than some of the other ACA releases as it didn't seem to get the Wii Virtual Console treatment in the past. We'll explode all of the things and let you know what we think in a review.

3DS eShop

Mysterious Stars 3D: Road to Idol (Collavier, €6.99 / £6.29) - This series of join-the-dots games on DSiWare was not exactly warmly received by our reviewers, but it returns on the 3DS with some added graphical flourishes.

Drone Fight (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £4.99) - As you'd expect from the title this one's all about flying drones, using both screens for different views. You can either race against the CPU (with various items that can be used) or set times for online leaderboards in Time Trial runs.

3DS Retail Download

Harvest Moon: Skytree Village (Natsume, €39.99 / £29.99, 10% off through My Nintendo for 30 Gold Points until 30th June) - A return of the 'official' named series in Europe, this includes the Minecraft-inspired terra-farming gameplay seen in The Lost Valley, along with the sim-elements many love from the series.
