The games that will be hitting the European Nintendo eShop this coming Thursday have been announced, as usual there is not many notable releases this week, however we can look forward to returning to Mario Kart 8 with the latest piece of downloadable content releasing this week. Not to mention the upgrade to 200cc will be sure to make the game even better, however more importantly we can look forward to racing around the Animal Crossing village. On another worthwhile note to celebrate the impending release of Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush (I still hate that name) Nintendo is reducing the price of several Kirby games on the eShop for both the Wii U and 3DS. The deals appear to be worth it and it will be good for many people to catch up on the Kirby franchise, here is the full lineup of games coming to the Nintendo eShop this week:
