After the plethora of releases over the last few weeks, (Dead Space 2, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Mass Effect 2 anybody?) things are beginning to return to the norm with fewer big titles hitting shelves. This week sees the releases of only three new games, the most notable being Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem on Nintendo DS.
At the opening of the mustachioed marvelâ€™s third theme park, Donkey Kong misses out on a Mini Pauline toy. Instead, he grabs Pauline and ventures into the park with Mario in hot pursuit. In the fourth Mario vs. Donkey Kong game, players use objects like girders, springs, conveyer belts, pipes and ladders to navigate their Mini Marios to the next level. You can also create new level maps and share them with others online. Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem is released this Thursday.
Thursday 3rd February:
Dance Juniors (Wii)
Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem (Nintendo DS)
The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff (PC)
Coming next week: Def Jam Rapster (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3), Mindjack (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3), Test Drive Unlimited 2 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC).
Release dates are subject to change without notice.
