This week’s Nintendo eShop release line-up includes a couple of demos and the return of a forgotten but highly enjoyable Wii game.

The two demos are Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which will offer a sampling of the full games multi-sport extravaganza and Kirby: Planet Robobot. We haven’t played the former but the new 3DS Kirby game is a miniature delight, making the demo worth downloading. It’s not a difficult game by any stretch but has bags of charm and features Kirby in a mech suit. What more could you want?

Over on Wii U there is also the chance to pick up Hudson Soft’s A Shadow’s Tale (a.k.a Lost in Shadow). It’s a beautiful 2D platform adventure that channels the likes of Ico and Prince of Persia. All in all, a bit of a forgotten gem.

This week also sees some more DLC released for Fire Emblem: Fates. Here’s the full release list.
