There’s a generous amount of new content available this week on the eShop, including free DLC! Topping the list of paid-for content are two very different but excellent titles. One is a toys-to-life phenomenon bringing you epic adventures with a variety of wonderful characters, whilst the other is a dark and horrifying tale where, thankfully, the characters stay firmly within the game.

- Skylanders Superchargers – $49.99 – Featuring over 40 Skylander characters and vehicles, this toys-to-life platforming behemoth will take you on land, sea, and air in an all new epic adventure– this time with added Bowser and Donkey Kong via their awesome Supercharger Amiibo!
