The E3 Expo begins this Tuesday (and several press conferences are scheduled to take place tomorrow), so the average gamer will likely be fairly distracted for the next few days. In response, game publishers have wisely avoided adding anything to the release calendar this week. So that makes it the perfect time for Nintendo, Naughty Dog, and Kalypso Media to release a few of this year’s most anticipated titles.
Starting things off, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the first game in the series to be released on the 3DS, is in stores today and is also available to download from the 3DS eShop.
Also available this week (on Friday, actually) is The Last of Us, Naughty Dog’s first non-Nathan Drake game in nearly ten years. Gamers have been clamoring over each other for any new information about this PS3 post-apocalyptic title since it was first announced in 2011. Thankfully, the wait is almost over.
Finally, Kalypso Media will release Dark, an action RPG where players control a powerful vampire, for the PC. I’m not sure gamers are as hyped up for Dark as they are for Animal Crossing and The Last of Us, but it does look interesting.
