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

Nintendo's new handheld, the 3DS, arrives next week with 17 launch titles, plus we'll also get Crysis 2, Swarm, and heaps more.


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:



Xbox 360

PlayStation 3

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo DS

        I was asking this yesterday and got no answers. I guess I'll wait on reviews, but I'd kill for a demo.

        So far I've heard it is more in line with Sims Stores than a proper Sims games.

        I didn't even realize this game was coming out this soon. I felt like it just got announced a week ago. Oh well hopefully someone will review it. Looking at you GiantBomb, quicklook please.

      Hmm, Tomb Raider Trilogy is temping me. I never finished TR: Anniversary on the 360 because it had really shitty framerates; the PS3 version apparently runs smoother.

        I know a version that runs smoother still.

      You post that games will release this week, but if you click on most of the games it says "Release Date :TBA"

        We're still having slight teething problems due to the new site launch.
