As another week begins we have more Nintendo Download Update details to consider for Europe. This week brings a range of promising download-only games on both Wii U and 3DS, along with another DS title on the Wii U Virtual Console. Some varied DLC is also on the cards, along with some handsome permanent discounts to Atlus RPGs (via NIS America); let's get to it.

Wii U eShop

Futuridium EP Deluxe (Mixed Bag, €7.99 / £5.99 until 2nd June, then €9.99/ £7.99) - Originally targeting an April release, this futuristic and high-speed title has you flying and shooting through a variety of colourful environments. Think of a faster Star Fox with elements of the Death Star run from the first Star Wars movie, and you're going in the right direction. We'll get cracking on a review.

Wii U Virtual Console

Mario Slam Basketball (Nintendo, €9.99 / £8.99) - Basketball that's about as Nintendo as it gets, throwing in Mario tricks and tweaks along with stylus-based controls. We'll go for a dunk and let you know how this DS title stacks up on Wii U.


LEGO MARVEL'S Avengers: Spider-Man Character Pack (WB Games, free)

Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (Screwattack Games, €4.99 / £4.49 until 9th June, normally €9.99 / £8.99)

Inside My Radio (Seaven Studio, €11.99 / £9.99 until 9th June, normally €14.99 / £12.99)

The Quiet Collection (Nostatic Software, €2.69 / £1.79 until 2nd June, normally €4.49 / £2.99)

3DS eShop

Infinite Dunamis (KEMCO, €9.99 / £8.99) - This publisher has brought a number of iOS and Android RPG releases to Nintendo's portable, and this is another to add to the list. This one has a bit of a steampunk aesthetic going on, and we'll see whether it's an adventure worth embarking upon in our review.

Epic Word Search Collection 2 (Lightwood Games, €7.99 / £5.99) - It's all in the name as this will offer a lot of word search puzzles on the 3DS, which its predecessor did rather well. There are five new categories, and this entry also adds a "flip controls" option to the user interface, which was apparently much requested by those that picked up the first game. We'll search for the right words and bring you a review.

Smash Cat Heroes (Tom Create, €2.49 / £1.99) — This is a top-down action title across both screens in which you bust some serious fighting moves; it'll also be possible to upgrade your cat's abilities as you play. It makes for a cute and relatively fun hack and slash experience, which we gave a modest recommendation in our Smash Cat Heroes review.

Samurai Defender (CIRCLE Entertainment, €2.99 / £2.39) - Previously listed on 16th July last year, it's included once again in Nintendo's press release. A side-on castle defence game set in the "Warring States period of Japan". You tap on enemies to attack them with your bowmen, while earning coins and levelling up boosts your abilities and defensive options. We weren't particularly impressed in our Samurai Defender review.


Fire Emblem Fates - Map 2: Boo Camp (Nintendo, or part of map pack 1) - A test of the nerves awaits in Boo Camp, when the army spends the night on a haunted mountain. Those who survive 'til morning are said to come out stronger for the experience, but is that just another ghost story?

Fire Emblem Fates - Map 3: Beach Brawl (Nintendo, or part of map pack 1) - In Beach Brawl, Corrin has been awarded hotly contested tickets to a vacation resort. With only one ticket up for grabs, it falls to the royal retainers to fight for the honour—and leisure—of their lieges.
