A day later than normal courtesy of a public holiday, we now have this week's full Nintendo Download Update details for Europe. There's a Wii U eShop exclusive, the next free-to-play Pokémon title on 3DS, an excellent 'zen' puzzle experience and more. Let's get to the details.
Wii U eShop
Affordable Space Adventures (KnapNok Games, €18.99 / £16.99) - A collaboration between KnapNok Games and Nifflas, this Wii U exclusive makes full use of the GamePad for intuitive controls in which you both fly and manage a spaceship's complex systems. Well suited to solo play or co-op for up to three players, this title oozes quality and care from the developers, with an atmospheric and challenging puzzle adventure on offer. We gave this a strong recommendation in our Affordable Space Adventures review.
Guac' a Mole (Madskull Creations, €3.50 / £3.19) - A new release we know little about at this stage, though it promises "a beautifully hand-drawn visual style and retro-styled soundtrack", while gameplay sounds like a twist on Asteroids in which you rotate the planet itself. We'll try to save the world for a review soon.
Pokémon Rumble World (The Pokémon Company, free) - The latest free-to-play experiment arrives for this latest entry in the relatively simplistic 'mon brawling series, in this case including small toy versions of every 'mon (and Mega Evolution) seen in the main series so far. It'll be interesting to see how the mechanics of free-to-play and microtransactions come together in this one, and we'll bring you a review soon. Available from 10am local time on 8th April.
Quell Memento (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.19) - The second entry in this series of relaxing puzzle experiences to arrive on the 3DS eShop, this has over 160 stages and introduces new elements and objectives to the existing 'zen' formula. We rated this very highly in our Quell Memento review.
