This week’s list of various Nintendo European store downloads has been unveiled, and other than classic shmup Gradius, the pickings are pretty slim.

Konami’s retro shooter will be landing on the 3DS Virtual Console this week, running you €4.99 / £4.49 in the process.

Other 3DS downloads include Monster Shooter, a game in which you…shoot…monsters, and Samurai G, a speedy endless runner. The former will cost €6.99 / £6.29, while the latter will be €1.99 / £1.79.

A demo of New Style Boutique will also be available on the handheld, for those of you who want to unleash your inner fashionista, while Art of Balance TOUCH! will be discounted to €4.99 / £4.49 for this week only.

DSiWare is light this week, with the tower defense game Come On! Dragons as the only notable selection. That’ll be 200 points.

Likewise with WiiWare, as the relatively unknown children’s game Back to Nature heads up that front for 500 points.
