If you’re a gamer and you have a pulse, this week is a very important week for new game releases. And that’s all because Batman: Arkham City (PS3, Xbox 360) will be available in stores this Tuesday. I’d just call in sick to work now to be on the safe side.

Also available this week is Insomniac’s next Ratchet and Clank adventure, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One (PS3), as well Level-5’s next Professor Laytone puzzler, Professor Layton and the Last Specter (DS).

More releases include EA’s plan to expand The Sims 3 with the The Sims 3: Pets on the 3DS, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 while Ubisoft’s Rocksmith, a “real guitar” game, will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Professor Layton and the Last Specter dated

Get ready to put on your thinking cap! Professor Layton and the Last Specter will be released on October 17 for the Nintendo DS.

The fourth game in the series, Last Specter will be the first in a new trilogy, set as a prequel to the original trilogy – three years before Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Not only does this game boast the most puzzles in the series, the North American version also has a bonus RPG that will have over 100 hours of extra content.

Excited? I know Ryan Littlefield is.

Professor Layton and the Last Specter given Fall 2011 release date

Lost in the shuffle of Nintendo’s Wii U and 3DS announcements comes the news that the fourth Professor Layton game, Professor Layton and the Last Specter, will be available on the DS this Fall.

Developed by Level-5, the game will sport a “baffling number of puzzles” and is the first story chronologically, making it a prequel to the entire Professor Layton saga. The Japanese release of The Last Specter included a full-length RPG, Professor Layton’s London Life, that was unlockable after the main game was completed. Let’s hope that makes it across the Pacific as well.
