Praise be to the Nintendo gods in the sky - we have some actual, bonafide, honest-to-goodness downloadable content for the 3DS eShop this week.

There's a fair amount of variety too, from older retail titles finally going digital, to brand new titles, to sequels that we've been waiting impatiently for.

There are even some price drops and sales going on, just to make up for the rubbish few weeks the eShop has been having.

Here goes nothing!

European eShop releases

Harvest Moon: A New Beginning finally comes to Europe, a whole year after it launched in the US.

It's a fun title, but one that is massively slow to get going, as I noted in my review. Still, if you're up for some classic Harvest Mooning, the digital price is £29.99.

Remember Super Street Fighter IV 3D? It was released alongside the launch of the 3DS way back in 2011. Well, you can grab it digitally now for £17.99, so there's that.

Zen Pinball: Star Wars
is £6.29. AiRace Speed is a bit more interesting - the original plane-racer on DSiWare was fantastic back in 2010, so hopefully this is going to be great too.

And Rage of the Gladiator is a fantasy fighter where you battle other gladiators and enemies in a Roman arena. That'll set you back £6.29.

Sales time now. Mutant Mudds is £5.39, while Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo is £2.49, and Kung Fu Rabbit is £2.24 - all well worth grabbing.

US eShop releases

The US eShop isn't too different to Europe's offerings this week, although there are some additions here and there.

You've got Star Wars Pinball, Rage of the Gladiator ($6.99) and AiRace Speed ($4.99), as described above.

On top of this, there's the awkward platformer Shifting World for download, Japanese RPG Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi, and a collection of Mahjong puzzles called Mahjong 3D - Essentials.

You've also got Solomon's Key on the Virtual Console - that costs $3.99. And that's your lot for this week - until we meet again!
