I'm thankful for a trip to Shibuya, dood.

Hope you like RPGs, because this week's biggest releases are both candidates for a trip down the pub. The World Ends With You: Final Remix - review for that should be up before you go to bed Thursday in NA - and Disgaea 1 Complete both represent an average of 110 hours of gameplay, though most of that is from the game with the exploding penguins. There's also a 3DS release of some import, as Luigi's Mansion spooks up the shop on Friday.

A mega-week of mega-releases that isn't as mega-big as last week.

So for the curious, by the time last week's article was finished there were *33* releases in North America and 31 of them were on Switch. As of initial press time this week, we have 19, and were two well-timed delays from having game releases for 12 straight days dating back to last Monday. The big ones for this week are Mega Man 11 - review for that shortly - and Super Mario Party, for two different ways to deal with 50 stages of hell.
