The games that will hit the European eShop this week have been announced and lets just be honest if you are hoping for anything much that new to play then you are out of luck but there are a couple of notable releases coming this week. Wii U owners and fans of Kirby should be happy to know that Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush (wow, I still hate that name) is finally arriving in the European region this week, the game arrived in North America earlier this year as Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (now that is a good name) but finally you will be able to play it yourself and see if it is your cup of tea. Also worth noting is Yoshi’s Island DS, those waiting for Yoshi’s Wooly World might like to give this DS classic a go to scratch that Yoshi itch and another DS game for the virtual console is never a bad thing. For 3DS owners there is nothing that I find is worth noting but in case you are interested you can look at the game lineup below and see what may appeal to you, not to mention there are some good sales going on that might be right up your alley so take a look below and see what you could be playing this week, enjoy:
