Nintendo is back in a big way this week with Pikmin 3. The latest game in one of Shigeru Miyamoto’s favorite franchises is in stores today and is sure to please Wii U owners who have been waiting for a big new title since Lego City Undercover‘s release this Spring. The PS3 is also back in a big way this week after a slow Summer. Namco Bandai’s action RPG, Tales of Xillia, and Atlus’ artful beat ‘em up, Dragon’s Crown (available on the PS3 and Vita), will be available in stores on Tuesday.
What else is available this week? Well…
A game adaptation of Disney’s Cars spinoff, Planes, touches down on all Nintendo platforms (3DS, DS, Wii, and Wii U) this week. And EA has put out another Sims 3 expansion, The Sims 3: Dragon Valley. Finally, a boxed version of Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition for the PC is available this week, alongside Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, a budget dogfighter for the PS3 and PC.
Happy July everyone! If you were looking for a massive list of new releases to while away a few Summer hours indoors when it’s just too hot outside… you’ve come to the wrong place. Just three games are on the release schedule for this week:
- Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition brings the Fatalities and gory one-on-one fighting to the PC for the first time.
- Dark is an action RPG for the PC from Kalypso that stars a brooding vampire.
- Crash City Mayhem is a racing game for the 3DS.
Hmm. Maybe this week’s downloadable slate will offer up something interesting…
Sony has added a new featured section to their PS3 Full Games store: Ultimate Editions!
Each Ultimate Edition is comprised of the original game and any available downloadable content, ensuring that gamers who use the PSN always have the complete game. To celebrate their new offering, Sony is running a weeklong sale on all nine Ultimate Editions. From now until June 4, all the Ultimate Editions will be 30% off with PS Plus subscribers getting a 50% discount.

Sony has updated the PlayStation Store with another batch of big releases today including the Vita version of Mortal Kombat.
Mortal Kombat is the only game newly released for Sony’s handheld this week, but it’s not the only brawler. PSN players will be able to download Romino’s Awesomenauts if they’re looking for another 2D fighting fix. Also available this week for the PSN is an adventure game, Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time.
A pair of full-sized PS3 games, a pair of PS2 Classics, and a single PSone Classic have also been added to the PlayStation Store this week.
They say opposites attract, and that’s definitely the case with the two PS3 titles, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Disney Universe. For old school RPG fans, The Legend of Dragoon is a game that’s gone, but has never been forgotten. It’s your PSone Classic this week. And finally, the original Max Payne and Rayman 2: Revolution make the PS2 Classics corner the place to be this week.
Possibly the weakest month of new video games ever comes to a close and the new games we can look forward on May 1 isn’t much more impressive.
However, that’s not to say there’s nothing new this week. For example, if you’re a fan of the best fighting game of last year… and your Vita needs a new game… look no further than Mortal Kombat on the PS Vita.
And that’s it. If there’s something for you, great. If not, there’s just two more weeks until we’re all blown away by the new releases of May 15.
Gimme a W! Gimme a B! What’s that spell!?!… You know, that kind of thing doesn’t work when what you’re trying to spell is just initials.
Anyway, Lollipop Chainsaw and its gory school bus full of gore and guts will be making a stop at this weekend’s PAX East expo. The game, which is scheduled for a June 12 release on the PS3 and Xbox 360, will be available in playable form to fulfill all your fantasies of cheerleaders, chainsaws, and doing the splits to decapitate a zombie.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will also be showcasing playable versions of Mortal Kombat for the portable PlayStation Vita, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for the Xbox 360, The Lord of the Rings Online, and Dungeons & Dragon Online: Menace of the Underdark in booth #424.
With Sony’s Vita launch behind us, the rest of the video game world closes out February with a few big releases:
- EA’s SSX returns on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
- Sega’s Yakuza Studio tries their hand at tech noir with Binary Domain (PS3, Xbox 360)
- Atlus releases another hardcore Japanese RPG. This time it’s Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 for the DS.
- Speaking of hardcore Japanese RPGs, NIS America plans to release Hyperdimension Neptunia MK-2 for the PS3.
- But on the lighter side of things, there’s PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond for the Wii.
- And on the even lighter side of things, NetherRealm has compiled the Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
OK, that last one was a joke. You can check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
This trailer is a tease! Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita will be available this Spring, but it won’t include the awesome Augmented Reality mode shown in this trailer. The scenes of Sub-Zero and Scorpion fighting on the street and in an office building and in a library are just supposed to invoke the feeling of playing Mortal Kombat anywhere.
That’s nice, I guess. And the trailer is pretty great looking. But dude, an AR mode for Mortal Kombat would have been ten kinds of awesome!
