It's that time again, dear readers, for the Nintendo Download Update in Europe. This week has brought us two retail titles and a few interesting download-only games on Switch, while a promising 3DS eShop game and various DLC packs across platforms are also up for grabs - along with the usual batch of discounts. Let's get to the details.

Nintendo Switch Retail Download

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Ubisoft, €59.99 / £49.99) - A mash-up that caused some concern when originally rumoured and then leaked, this turn-based strategy has done a good job of winning over sceptics. It has a lot to offer with exploration and puzzles supplementing the battles, and delivers a unique and smart turn-based tactical experience. We loved it in our Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle review.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack (Inti Creates, €34.99 / £31.49) - A combo offering that includes both original 3DS games and all DLC; enhancements include HD visuals (in some respects), 60fps performance and HD Rumble. Our review will be with you later today.

Switch eShop

League of Evil (Ratalaika Games, €7.99 / £7.19) - A retro-styled action game with 140 levels to take on, it also has a level editor for sharing creations and the ability to download community levels from across platforms. It's addictive, fun and brutally challenging, or so we said when giving it a recommendation in our League of Evil review.

Zed Blade (HAMSTER, €6.99 / £6.29) - In this frenetic horizontal shmup you have the choice of three craft with different speeds along with customizable weaponry. After your choices have been made it is time to make a trip around our solar system, turning everything that moves on the screen into scrap metal. We'll bring you a review of this ACA release soon.

Sky Ride (Mutan, €6.99 / £6.29) - Previously released on PS4, the idea here is that you fly through battlefields fighting various futuristic foes. Unfortunately this one is very rough around the edges, as we explain in our Sky Ride review.

Switch DLC

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Season Pass (Ubisoft, €19.99 / £15.99) - Initially includes some new weapons, with additional challenges and story content planned for Autumn 2017 and 2018.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest (WayForward, €9.99 / £8.99) - The story takes place just after the initial one, and will see the now-playable Risky going on a quest to find five new parts to add to the dynamo so she can rule over Sequin Land.

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition - Biome Settlers Skin Pack 3 (Mojang, €1.99 / £1.59)

Switch eShop Demo

VOEZ (Flyhigh Works, free)

3DS eShop

Parascientific Escape - Crossing at the Farthest Horizon (CIRCLE Entertainment, €5.00 / £4.99) - We rather enjoyed the first two games in this series, and this final part brings the stories together while hopefully giving us more of what was rather good puzzle-based gaming in its predecessors.
