New Releases: Captain America, Just Dance Summer Party, Call of Juarez The Cartel

I realize that Harry Pottermania has taken over the world, but there are still plenty of new games coming to stores this week.

First, there’s Sega’s tale of the man who punched Hitler in the jaw, Captain America: Super Soldier, for the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. A very different kind of fight is going on in Ubisoft’s Call of Juarez: The Cartel (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) as a cowboy cop takes on the drug cartels. Finally, you can do a little dance with another Ubisoft title, Just Dance: Summer Party for the Wii.

Hmm, while it’s probably too early to pass judgement on all of these games, going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 again might not be a bad idea.

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

Sonic leads Sega’s E3 lineup… again

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s a popular phrase that goes back almost 200 years and Sega has certainly adopted it in their crusade to create another great Sonic the Hedgehog game on a console. The publisher will try again this year as Sonic Generations (3DS, PS3, Xbox 360) leads their E3 lineup. Sega is so sure they’ve got it right this time that they’re even giving the public a sneak peek at the game at the Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 8 at 6 PM (Pacific Time).

The remainder of Sega’s lineup is pretty diverse and seems to have a little bit of something for everyone:

  • The long-gestating squad-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines
  • Platinum Games’ latest brawler, Anarchy Reigns
  • The Terminator-esque Binary Domain
  • Movie-to-game adaptation Captain America: Super Soldier
  • The reborn puzzler Crush 3D
  • The XBLA debut of Treasure’s Guardian Heroes
  • The brilliant light gun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, on the PS3 for the first time.
  • Downloadable action title Renegade Ops
  • The first M-rated Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares
  • The rally racer Sega Rally Online Arcade, which is available now
  • And Shinobi emerging from the shadows on the 3DS

Sega also has a few surprises in store for the E3 Expo as they’ve promised “more than 13 new games across all major platforms,” but they only listed 12 games. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nintendo, I’d bet good money that we’ll get a Wii 2 announcement or two.

More information on Sega’a announced E3 slate can be found after the break. (more…)

Captain America, Thor games go 3D, get new trailers

Captain America and Thor will be hammering into movie theaters this summer in Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, but Sega is also giving gamers the chance to control these titans of the Marvel universe in two tie-in games as well.

Yesterday, the publisher announced that Thor: God of Thunder would be released for the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 on May 3. They’ve also given a July 19th release date to Captain America: Super Soldier, which is also coming to the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. A 3DS version is planned for both titles, but it won’t be ready until each movie hits Blu-ray/DVD this Fall.

And speaking of 3D, Sega has also revealed that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of both games will be playable in stereoscopic 3D. Because nothing says “duck!” like seeing Mjolnir or Cap’s Shield thrown directly at the screen.

Each game will support multiple 3D viewing options including anaglyph color mode using red and blue glasses for conventional displays, Side-by-Side & Top-Bottom modes for active shutter glasses and 3D televisions, and the higher resolution Frame Packing mode for HDMI 1.4 3D displays only on the PS3.

In celebration of the release date announcement, Sega has unveiled a new trailer for each game. Check them out after the break. (more…)

Chris Evans to voice Captain America in game adaptation

Marvel tapped Chris Evans to don the red, white and blue of Captain America for the World War II hero’s new movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, and now Sega has enlisted his services for the video game adaptation.

The game, Captain America: Super Soldier, is in development for the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 at Next Level Games and it should be available soon after the movie’s July opening. Evans, who is no stranger to superheroics after starring in The Fantastic Four, will supply his likeness and vocal talents for the title.

“Signing Chris to star in Captain America: Super Soldier delivers the cinematic quality and emotional drive that fans expect,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sega of Europe and Sega of America. “Chris will help fuel the character’s mission as he battles through the enormous Hydra castle full of legendary villains in a completely original story.”

Evans is the only Captain America cast member that is currently signed on for Super Solider. It’s unknown if his fellow stars Hugo Weaving (Red Skull) abd Sebastian Stan (Bucky) will join him.
