The video game release list of 3/21-3/27

Nintendo's new handheld, the 3DS, launches next week. It's out in Europe on Friday, March 25, then in North America on Sunday, March 27. A number of games will be available from March 22, though, so you can stock up beforehand. Here's what your $249.99 will get you.

It'd be a good week for video games even without the 3DS, with new releases including Crysis 2, the long-awaited PC edition of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, the intriguing new fantasy Sims game, Hothead's Swarm, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clones Wars, Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy and oh so many more.

Here's the full list of next week's releases:
