New Releases: Battlefield 3, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, Pokemon Rumble Blast, More

The war begins this week as DICE’s Battlefield 3 will be published by EA on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will have two weeks by itself on store shelves before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 returns fire on November 8. Have you chosen a side yet?

Also available this week is a Kirby game that we all thought was cancelled back in the GameCube days, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. It’ll be available on the Wii this week, and yes, that’s Kirby wearing a Link hat and wielding a sword that looks suspiciously like the Master Sword. Nintendo will also unleash the melee-battling of Pokemon Rumble Blast on the 3DS.

A ton of smaller games will also make it onto store shelves this week including Namco Bandai’s Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi (PS3, Xbox 360), Sega’s The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut (PS3), Disney’s Disney Universe (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360), Atlus’s The Cursed Crusade (PS3, Xbox 360) and Telltale’s Back to the Future (PS3, Wii).

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

Disney Universe suit ups this Fall

The Disney/Square Enix partnership has produced six Kingdom Hearts games with a seventh in development. The House of Mouse must have taken that franchise’s mashup mentality to heart as they’ve announced Disney Universe will be available on the PC, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 this Fall.

Disney Universe will mix together characters from Disney’s animated and live-action films in a “fast-paced” and “frenetic” adventure. Players will be able to “suit up” as more than 40 Disney characters including Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Mike (Monsters, Inc.), Tron (Tron: Legacy) and Stitch (Lilo & Stitch). Once in costume, players will gain powers and tools related to their character of choice as they explore six worlds based on legendary Disney and Pixar films. And like any good family game, Disney Universe will also include a multiplayer mode for up to four players.

Disney Interactive plans to expand Disney Universe on the PS3 and Xbox 360 post-launch through an expanding universe of downloadloadable content and items including additional worlds, costumes and more available for purchase.
