The 3DS eShop in Europe gets Splash or Crash for €2.99/£2.69 (titled Kersploosh! in the U.S.).

Each item has a different durability and speed.


Meanwhile, the 3DS Virtual Console gets Pac-Man for the NES for €4.99/£4.49.


(EU) Wii U eShop update:


No new Wii U releases this week. However, the original Wii is getting Retro City Rampage on WiiWare (1000 points), along with Reel Fishing Ocean Challenge (500 points).
