Weekly Releases: 2/13/11

Time to fall in love all over again this week!

Significant Releases

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (360 / PS3)

Developer: Capcom (Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, Super Street Fighter IV)
Publisher: Capcom

It's Mahvel baybee! After years of waiting for the next major versus title (apart form rereleases and Tatsunoko vs Capcom on Wii), Capcom is finally bringing us Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Doctor Doom, many Marvel villains, and Wesker have combined forces to conquer both the Capcom and Marvel worlds, but the activity awakens a greater evil, forcing both sides to come together and face off against total destruction of both worlds. The game features the same arcade experience with thirty characters spanning both Marvel and Capcom universes, and there are characters planned for DLC content (two already announced: Shuma-Gorath and Jill Valentine). So much fighting, so little time!

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation (DS)

Developer: ArtePiazza (Dragon Quest IV, V, VI, Opoona)
Publisher: Nintendo

Nintendo continues to publish the Dragon Quest franchise, this time bringing the Super Famicom-only Dragon Quest VI to American gamers. In this installment, the heroes in this adventure journey forth to save the world from destruction, but in a twist, most of them suffer from amnesia and, therefore, know little about what is happening or even who they are. There are a few changes to the original SNES release, such as restrictions on which monsters can join the party, and the tagging mode introduced in Dragon Quest IX will also return in the remake, so players can go meet up with other players for extra game content.

Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together (PSP)

Developer: Square-Enix (Tactics Ogre Series)
Publisher: Square-Enix

The second Square-Enix remake release this week, Tactics Ogre takes the original game and takes it to a new level. Made with the original team behind the game, Tactics Ogre for PSP offers revamped graphics, enhanced musical compositions, and new characters to further expand on the game's already massive story setting. Those who truly want to see how turn-based strategy games were back then, brought back with extra life, should certainly enjoy this title.
