Popn Twinbee

It's time to start off the week in the best possible way — the Nintendo Download Update. After what's seemed like a particularly busy few weeks this update slows us down a little, with a smaller selection on offer. We do have a terrific shooters and a Pokémon surprise to consider, along with some discounts, so let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

Wii Karaoke U by JOYSOUND (Nintendo, €2.99 / £2.69 for a 2 hour ticket) — This title has been available for a good amount of time, with this update confirming a new 2 hour ticket purchase option.

Wii U Virtual Console

Pop'n Twinbee (Konami, €7.99 / £5.49) — The news that this was coming West late last year was tempered by just one thing — would we be lucky enough to get the "awesome" SNES version of this cute shooter? The answer is yes, so it arrives in all of its colourful glory, with a two player mode perfect for sharing this retro delight with a friend. This is the European PAL version, for reference, and we'll bring you a review as soon as possible.

Wii U eShop Promotion

NES Remix and NES Remix 2 — If you own one of these titles you can pick up the other (on the same Wii U) for €6.99 / £6.29, offer available until 24th July.

3DS Virtual Console

Pokémon Trading Card Game (Nintendo, €4.99 / £4.49) — A surprising arrival this week, this was originally released on the Game Boy Color and gives fans of the iconic franchise an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the Trading Card Game. It has more than 200 cards from the original decks and more besides, and is an opportunity to learn how the TCG actually works; we'll bring you a review soon.

3DS eShop Temporary Discounts

Nintendo Pocket Football Club (Nintendo, €11.99 / £10.79 until 13th July, normally €14.99 / £13.49)
