What's coming out this week?
The beginning of a new week always starts with the same question: what new games will be available to us this week? We're still playing the games from last week, but it never hurts to be ahead of the game (or games), right?
This week brings us a game from a classic kids' series, a HD upgrade for one of this generation's best sellers, and the next installment in perhaps the most popular annual franchise in gaming. Get your wallets ready, it's going to be a good week.
Ben 10: Omniverse 2
Coming to: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS, Wii
Ben 10 fans have a brand new game to play this week with Ben 10 Omniverse 2. The new game adds a co-op mode for double the Omnitrix and a multiplayer mode for some friends to Omnitrix each other in the face. Fans of the cartoon should feel right at home.
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Coming to: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U
We don't really need to say a whole lot about this one. It's Call of Duty, it comes out every year, and this year's game has to do with ghosts and a cool German Shepherd dog. If you like shooters, it's right up your alley. If you don't, then it's not for you.
Moshi Monsters Katsuma Unleashed
Coming to: 3DS, DS
Previous Moshi Monster games have been all about raising your own little monsters, but this time Katsuma Unleashed brings side-scrolling platforming to the Moshi World. This will give us a taste of Moshi unlike anything we've seen before. If you're a Moshi nut, this is basically a must-play.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures
Coming to: 3DS
We've already seen Pac-Man's ghostly adventures on consoles, but this week we'll be able to take Pac-Man and his ghosts wherever we want. This game is based on the new Pac-Man cartoon on Disney XD, and the fact that Pac-Man has a cartoon again is just awesome.
Power Rangers Megaforce
Coming to: 3DS
It seems the Power Rangers are still going strong after all of these years, although we're not sure what the current situation is. We're confident that there will be monsters to fight and morphing times to keep, but we're not at all familiar with the current Rangers. Give us Jason, Trini, Zack, Billy, and Kimberly, however, and we're in. We'll even take Bulk and Skull.
The Guided Fate Paradox
Coming to: PS3
Nippon Ichi brings yet another anime-style RPG to PS3 this week. This one follows a guy named Renya who is promoted to deity status, only to be burdened with defending a town from demons. We also know that this is a spiritual successor to the 2010 PSP game Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman, which may be the best title for a game ever. If only this game had followed suit.
Wii Sports Club
Coming to: Wii U
Wii Sports Club is the same Wii Sports you knew and loved on the Wii, but now in glorious HD. We can now also download each sport separately if we wish, buying only the ones we want and not having to worry about seeing the sports we don't normally play. We're excited to get back into Wii Sports, we missed the appendage-less Miis somehow throwing strikes and hitting home runs.
Anything for you?
That's what's coming out this week, so if you saw anything you want on this list, be ready to run to the store as soon as possible and grab it, because it'll be out very very soon. We expect Call of Duty to be a big time seller, but the young folk have plenty of valid options too.
