Nintendo has published its weekly eShop updates for Europe. Among the new offerings this week are Game & Wario, the Game Gear edition of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and NES classic Balloon Fight.

Wii U:

First up is the retail release of Game & Wario at €39.99 / £34.99. It’s a mad mash-up of mini-games that falls short of WarioWare Inc’s brilliance, but it might be worth a punt if you’re a fan. You can check out my game-by-game opinion blog on the release here.

Also, a full retail release of F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition drops from Codemasters at €49.99 / £39.99, followed by two Virtual Console releases.

First up is NES classic Balloon Fight at €4.99 / £3.49, followed by SNES casino game Vegas Stakes at €7.99 / £5.49.


Over on 3DS, there’s a full retail release of Mon Haras 3D – Au gallop vers l’aventure at €39.99. It’s a French horse adventure game, basically.

The 3DS eShop has many digital releases this week, starting with Mighty Switch Force! 2 at€5.00 / £5.00, followed by Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Last Ranger at €6.99 / £6.29 (goes up to €9.99 / £8.99 on July 4), Aqua Moto Racing 3D at €9.99 / £8.99, Urban Trial Freestyle at €5.99 / £4.99 (goes up to €6.99 / £6.29 on July 4), and finally, 3D MahJongg at €9.99 / £9.79.

Sega is bringing the Game Gear edition of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to 3DS Virtual Console. It’s totally different from the Mega Drive original and its as hard as nails. Seriously. It’ll cost you €4.99 / £4.49. Fellow Game Gear classic Crystal Warriors will cost you €3.99 / £3.59.

Finally, there’s a new Project X Zone demo from Namco Bandai.
