Nintendo Download: 17th September (Europe)

Another week, another helping of digital delights from Nintendo. If you're in Europe and you want to know exactly what titles you can download to your Wii U and 3DS this week, then you've certainly come to the right place.

Wii U eShop

Year Walk (Simogo, £6.29 / €6.99) - Grim tales, horrifying creatures and cryptic enigmas await in the dark woods of 19th century Sweden. Find out more about this unique game in our interview with Simogo and Dakko Dakko while we polish off our review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mario vs. Donkey Kong (Nintendo, £6.29 / €6.99) - Mario vs. Donkey Kong pits the Nintendo mascot against his old adversary in a unique twist on the platform genre that made them famous. We'll take a look at this Game Boy Advance classic again to see if it's still just as much fun on the Wii U, until then you can check out our Mario vs. Donkey Kong 3DS eShop review.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis (Nintendo, £8.99 / €9.99) - Take control of the Mini Marios and rescue Pauline from a jealous Donkey Kong. In the first Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Mario was trying to find all the Mini Marios, but this time it's up to them to save the day. Use the touch screen to guide Mini Marios through multiple mind-boggling, obstacle-filled levels to rescue Pauline who was captured once again by Donkey Kong. This is a worthy successor to the GBA original, but one which we have neglected to review! We'll be sure to rectify this over the coming week when we take a look at this again on the Wii U eShop.

Tecmo Bowl (TECMO KOEI GAMES, £3.49 / €4.99) - It's 8-bit American Football, which is nice. Not quite the complex, occasionally confusing experience of the modern Madden titles, this has a very limited set of plays — two passing and two running — to deal with. Its simplicity is arguably one of its strengths, and you certainly don't need to be an expert of the sport to enjoy the single player, multiplayer or coaching options. We gave this a recommendation in our 3DS Virtual Console Tecmo Bowl review.
