Marvel and DC face off while the Wii U throws a party.
This week is absolutely loaded to the brim with retail game releases. Batman makes his 3DS debut and Wii U gets the ultimate Marvel game. Beyond that we have Deus Ex and a second Just Dance game coming out in October! To celebrate you can even gather up some friends and play Wii Party U!
Originally planned as a Wii U exclusive, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut releases this week. This Wii U version features GamePad integration and, according to our reviewer Curt, it's very good.
After the excitement that was Just Dance 2014 you would think Ubisoft would wait a little longer to release another game, but in the same month we are getting Just Dance Kids 2014. If you love to dance, you may want to check it out.
The big LEGO game of this fall, Marvel Superheroes, just may be the largest LEGO title yet. Over 100 playable characters and an open-world LEGO New York make up a brick-tastic looking game.
Plankton's Robotic Revenge may not seem that interesting to most, but I think this game could be fun considering it has 4 player co-op. Even if it sucks, nothing is better then playing a bad game with friends.
The other super hero game this week, Arkham Origins, is the third game in the Batman Arkham series. While the Wii U version is $10 less then other consoles, it also lacks online multiplayer, but does include GamePad exclusive features. So this one may take some thought when deciding which console to get it on.
Packed with a Wii Remote and GamePad stand, this mini-game collection has over 80 mini-games. There are also some interesting looking GamePad only games. While I may not be a fan of the mini-game collection genre, this should be good.
More dancing. We all wanted that right? Right? Anybody?
A joke of some sort, I am being forced to write about this SpongeBob game four times.
Based on the current Nickelodeon series of the same name, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brings all the action and excitement of what can only be described as genetic mistakes to the Wii.
Hometown story places you in a small town where you must run your grandmother's shop. If that doesn't sound exciting, I really don't know what is.
The handheld version of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has the subtitle Universe in Peril. Beyond that we don't actually known a lot about this version. I wouldn't expect an open-world New York City though.
SpongeBob is also making an appearance on the 3DS this week in the same game as on other platforms.
You know I don't understand the appeal of the Ninja Turtles. I neither grew up with them or care to learn more about them, but despite that, the 3DS gets another licensed game and I have to tell you about it.
The Batman Arkham series comes to the 3DS in Blackgate. Exclusive to handheld systems, Batman goes to Blackgate prison in an action packed side-scrolling Metroidvaina style adventure.
The DS is getting some LEGO super hero action in what can only be assumed to be a downgraded version of the 3DS entry.
SpongeBob's final game this week. Yes, this game is coming out on every current Nintendo platform.
Anything look good this week? Be sure to come by next week for more game releases.
